Reel Movie Reviews: Drillbit Taylor

by at . Comments

Drillbit Taylor is the latest comedy from the wild mind of Judd Apatow. It stars Owen Wilson and looks at least moderately funny.

Do movie critics agree? There's just one way to find out. Let's ask them! Replies follow...

- Do you hear that? That shrill, shrieking sound coming from your local multiplex? That would be the Judd Apatow machine slowly, steadily winding down after humming along so brilliantly for so long. -- San Francisco Chronicle

- It's hardly worth going on at much length about the movie, a disordered, dispirited shuffling of flailing-to-be-funny and trying-to-be-empathetic scenes. -- Entertainment Weekly

- A dispiritingly mediocre tweener comedy from some very talented people who appear to be experiencing a delayed sophomore slump. -- The Austin Chronicle

- You've got to hand it to Owen Wilson. He has an uncanny ability to delivery the loopiest of lines without losing credibility. And there are a bundle of loopies in this off-beat comedy. -- Urban Cinefile
