1860 - Sex Drive
So if you look at this blog regularly you're thinking - wow - Jeremy is a bit of a pervert watching all these sex comedies. I promise it's for research - not just pure enjoyment. I remember when I first saw this how impressed I was by it - it really is a funny as hell film. I watched the unrrated cut - which is a bit bizarre just on it's own - they literally just throw in a ridiculous amount of extra boobs and penises in just to make it a proper unrated cut. If you've never seen this film you're going to want to check out the theatrical version first.
This is a typical sex comedy about a guy trying to lose his virginity and the journey he goes on to make it happen. But it's better than just that - the cast is pretty killer - Clark Duke easily steals the entire film, but James Marsden and Seth Green have fantastic supporting parts as well. If I have an argument it's simply that the film goes on a lot of tangents mostly because there aren't a lot of natural obstacles to interfere. Luckily they're entertaining as hell. If you like your coming of age sex comedies, this is easily one of the best of recent years.
