New York Daily News

By Elizabeth Weitzman
Even if this movie doesn't quite hit the highs of its predecessor, it's nice to know that there are still filmmakers ready to respect the eternal struggles of freaks and geeks.

Premiere

Presents nothing blindingly new for fans of Apatow- or Sandler-style humor and when watching it, one can hear the faint rustling of old scripts being yanked from drawers for a timely cash-in, but with his high-school memories now hopefully exhausted, maybe Rogen has a good college yarn to spin.

Philadelphia Inquirer

There are winning scenes between Wilson and the three teens as they train in various martial arts (like Mexican Judo - "as in Ju-don't know who you're messing with!") and get tips from clips of "Fight Club" and "The Untouchables."

The film emits a subtle yet distinct John Hughes vibe.

A relatively lame exercise that never achieves comic traction.

Chicago Tribune

By Michael Phillips
"Superbad” got a deserved R rating for its unmitigated and gleeful raunch. Drillbit Taylor is cleaner in mouth but far uglier in spirit. Wilson and Mann do what they can to tone it up, but their scenes belong to a different film, and a fresher one.

USA Today

As clunky and humorless as its title.

Boston Globe

Drillbit Taylor sounds like a rediscovered blaxploitation movie or a name near the top of the NFL draft.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
Another dreadful, not-funny Owen Wilson movie, in which Wilson is the best thing.

Entertainment Weekly

By Lisa Schwarzbaum
A failing-grade comedy about the wishful triumph of high school dorks over high school bullies.
