Pretty funny movie/ love story.5/10
I enjoyed the movie. Rob Schneider was funny and the supporting cast was strong. It was filmed in Detroit MI originally slated to be filmed in Louisiana. It's nice to see how far the supporting cast has come since filming. It has some adult situations, but the main theme is a love story. In the movie 'Naz' the antagonist female character drives a Red 1964 Cutlass f-85 convertible. After the movie wrapped I bought the car and am in the process of restoring it. It's a beautiful car and it drives wonderfully. I watch the movie a few times a year. There is a love song duet sung in my car half way through the movie, very nice song I have been trying to find out the name of the song since I hear it in 2010. Denny G MPLS MN
It was OK, not terrible.4/10
OK, so i borrowed this movie from a buddy, and watched it by myself. I wasn't expecting much when i started it.. And i didn't get much. Just lots of boobies. But that has to be the only good thing about this movie. There is hardly any plot for it. And what little there is just dissolves towards the end of the movie.

As for the acting.. It's not great.. but watchable. It's a real shame that Rob Schneider is doing movies like this now.

But anyway, if you just want a movie with a large amount of nudity in it, then just watch this.

I Give it a 2* out of 5*

Enjoy.

Disney presents "Road Trip for Girls"4/10
...at least if Disney movies contained lots of topless nudity.

The plot: A girl (Jenna Dewan), who has devoted her life to chastity and following rules, goes to college on scholarship from an organization that promotes celibacy. She inadvertently gets drunk at a party and is filmed topless by "Chicks Go Crazy" (this movie's fictional version of "Girls Gone Wild"). She and her new-found college friends embark on a journey to save her reputation and her scholarship by getting the footage back. Along the way she learns lots of lessons about life and love, and we see a lot of breasts.

Although it has lots of (attempted) college humor, the storyline is that of a typical formulaic teen movie, complete with morals and cliche moments. Sometimes it's rather painful. One scene in particular stands out in my mind, where the main character and a guy who's falling in love with her are listening to the radio and actually break out into song (clearly lip-syncing with prerecorded voices). Reminded me of Aladdin ("A Whole New World").

I think what annoyed me most was the background music, which is cornily reminiscent of typical family films ("Honey I Shrunk the Kids" came to mind specifically, for some reason). I've never seen a film that contained so much adult content and yet felt so geared towards being a family movie. I really don't know who this movie was made for. On the one hand, the story is so fluffy it seems like pubescent girls were the target demographic. On the other hand there's the raunchy college humor and frequent nudity. So I'm not really sure who they were hoping this would appeal to.

As a late edit to this comment: I wanted to mention one positive aspect of this film, and that is its message regarding "Girls Gone Wild", which was aimed perhaps at those girls who value that kind of attention. The message is delivered in true teen cliche fashion, but nevertheless, it is a decent message that I haven't seen mentioned before.
Another teen sex Comedy6/10
Yeah okay there are too many teen sex comedy's out there started with American Pie but this is likable. Its not as bad as many of the reviews in IMDb so far. The story is around a girl who gets a college scholarship based on her beliefs to abstain from sex until married. The organisation pays for her scholarship and sends her to college where she gets the room mate from Hell and then everything goes wrong for her then on.

It is basic stuff with no real twists and turns but you do laugh and thats what a comedy is supposed to do. The characters are all likable and believe it or not some of the scenes are like real life. The possessive Girlfriend who rings every 5 minutes when you are away is my favourite.

I would comment that the film was probably aimed at a younger audience as it had the feel of a family film but there was a lot of nudity so i am not really sure what age group this was aimed at. The main point though is it made me laugh so i enjoyed it.
Chicks Go Crazy but one girl just can't bare it.6/10
It's always worrying when you come along to IMDb to review a movie you didn't think was all that bad and then see a bunch of damning reviews/messages from people claiming that it was the worst thing that they'd ever seen.

American Virgin is a lowbrow teen sex comedy and that's all it is. But, from that perspective, it's actually quite a good one.

Young Priscilla (Jenna Dewan) is a sexually abstinent, non-swearing woman of purity who is able to attend college thanks to her scholarship from an organisation that promotes celibacy. Her new roommate is the decidedly impure Naz (Brianne Davis). During a wild party that involves the main man behind the hugely popular "Chicks Go Crazy" series (Rob Schneider) Priscilla is persuaded by Naz to stay and have some jello. The jello is tasty enough but the vodka in it alters the teetotal Priscilla into a wild party girl and the rest of the movie sees her trying to recover the footage of her outrageous behaviour. Naz is determined to help her, as is both Kevin (Elan Moss-Bachrach) and the smitten Chuck (Chase Ryan Jeffery).

American Virgin doesn't have any real big stars in there (with the exception of Schneider who, love him or loathe him, is at least relatively well-known) and it certainly doesn't have a massive budget but it compensates for these things with a number of decent laughs and plenty of moments featuring women baring their breasts to feature in a "Chicks Go Crazy" release. Jenna Dewan is appealing enough in the central role while everyone else also does fine. Ashley Schneider (no relation to Rob, as far as I'm aware) has a small but fun role as an overbearing girlfriend and Bo Burnham does well with his limited screen time.

It's more than one or two notches below the likes of American Pie and The 40-Year-Old Virgin but Jeff Seeman's script and Clare Kilner's direction both stay just far enough above average to make this worth a watch if you're bored and happen to come across it.
