Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Sex Drive

An awkward young teenager drives across the country to meet a beautiful girl he met online. Ian just graduated high school. One problem: he's still a virgin. Since he is made fun of in his hometown and constantly bullied by his jerk older brother Rex, that doesn't seem to be changing any time soon. However, he has a prospect on the horizon-- "Ms. Tasty," a girl he met while chatting online. She's beautiful, she's funny, and everything he's ever wanted. New problem: he lives in Illinois... but she's in Tennessee. With the help of his friends Lance and Felicia, they steal Rex's car and start a road trip to Knoxville. Along the way, the radiator overheats and they become stranded; they try to get a little extra mileage by making Felicia pee into the radiator, but that doesn't fix the problem. Luckily, they come across a sarcastic Amish man named Ezekiel, who insists that he can fix the car. While they wait, Lance falls in love with a beautiful Amish girl named Mary, and it becomes increasingly clear that Felicia has feelings for Ian. They arrive in Knoxville, but before they can reach Ms. Tasty, Rex shows up, ready to kill Ian. Rex recants his death threats, however, after Ian convinces him that he's doing this due to latent gay feelings emerging, appealing to Rex's homophobia. When he meets Ms. Tasty, she is everything she claimed to be-- however, additionally, she is also dating someone, and they have seduced several suckers like Ian in order to steal their cars and sell their parts. Ian must get in touch with Lance and Felicia in order to get their help in stopping Ms. Tasty from driving away with their ride home.

Best part of story, including ending: While it has a few laughs, this is an incredibly cliched sex comedy, with bland characters and a mean streak at its core.

Best scene in story: Ian works at a donut shop in the mall, and someone attaches prosthetic private parts to this hilariously crazy costume. This is as funny as it gets.

Opinion about the main character: Ian is sweet but pretty indistinguishable and kind of a wimp. It doesn't help that Josh Zuckerman is pretty indistinguishable as an actor as well.
