All Movie Guide
Take the wacky situations of The 40-Year-Old Virgin and the horny teen angst of American Pie and you have The Virginity Hit, a lust-filled teen sex comedy shot documentary-style and produced by Funny or Die partners Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. The film is fresh and goes from just your average run-of-the-mill coming-of-age story to a film worthy of the YouTube generation. This is the second feature film for co-writers/directors Andrew Gurland and Huck Botko, so they're no strangers to this pseudo-documentary style of filmmaking both are credited as writers for the recent horror film The Last Exorcism, which was filmed in a similar manner, and that technique works here. The story centers on best friends Matt and Zach, played by newcomers Matt Bennett and Zack Pearlman, who are on a mission to devirginize the former while the later documents the ever-embarrassing moments, and while there's a predictable amount of gross-out humor and outrageous comedic sequences, The Virginity Hit is a raw, unfiltered peek into the lives and minds of lust-filled teenage boys. In standard sex comedy fashion, four friends make an agreement that each time one of them loses his virginity they'll take a hit from a ceremonial bong and recount the experience with the others. The virgin in the group is Matt, a likable and somewhat nerdy guy, who after two years with his girlfriend, Nicole Nicole Weaver, decides that he's ready to take things to the next level. However, Matt's plans of post-coital bliss go awry when he finds out that Nicole cheated on him, and his whole world crumbles. In an attempt to cheer him up, Matt's friends make it a point to help him lose his virginity and scheme everything from finding girls on the Internet to tracking down porn star Sunny Leone, and all the while Zach chronicles everything with a portable video camera and posts the most memorable and embarrassing moments on YouTube for the world to see. There's nothing particularly new about The Virginity Hit. The script makes heavy use of tired tropes familiar to the genre -- the obligatory scene where the virgin buys condoms, hooking up with the best friend's hot sister, hiring a prostitute in times of desperation -- but what works is the ability of the actors to essentially go off-script and improv the majority of the film, and what you're left with is an ensemble cast that is not only funny, but believable. What might not be so believable, however, are the situations the kids find themselves in, which range from painfully adolescent to downright ludicrous. Still, The Virginity Hit is fun to watch, and though it may not become quite as iconic as American Pie or Superbad, for that matter, the film manages to strike a balance between gonzo-style filmmaking and a familiar story that is both unpretentious and entertaining.
