The Virginity Hit? It's a film starring an unknown cast, but produced by some big players in Hollywood... Will Farrell and Adam McKay. The movie is about four friends, three of which have lost their virginity. Matt is the four and final guy to try and lose his virginity in the bunch. He's been with his girlfriend for 2 years, and he thinks their anniversary will be the day.
What I liked about the film:
In this day and age, it's all about Facebook and Twitter and YouTube. In almost every movie featuring teenage characters, they reference these technologies. TVH (The Virginity Hit) is no different. It's shot in a very unique way; as a series of home videos/camera phone footage. It's a unique look that works. The friends have promised to chronicle Matt's journey to losing his virginity... and posting it to YouTube. It's definitely in the raunchy comedy genre, but done so differently, it deserves a category all its own.
What I didn't like about the film:
The movie feels real for the most part. But as soon as it strays away from that and tries to do more, it doesn't work. There were a few exaggerated scenes that took away from the film more than they added.
Hilarious with heart
read here about the controversy surrounding the billboard to the left. The film gets a thumbs up from me.
I know this is a "DVD review", but the DVD of the film I rented had literally no extras. Which is too bad. It was an independent film, but It would have been fun to see the behind the scenes goodies. Go out and see this movie guys, then let me know what you think!
