DRILLBIT TAYLOR (2008 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

Drillbit Taylor has a good, fun comedy script that serves up a decent amount of laughter a la Owen Wilson, Troy Gentile, Nate Hartley, David Dorfman, Alex Frost, and Josh Peck. Owen Wilson is a perfect casting choice here and serves up comedy at a high level.
