The Virginity Hit [2010]


When four friends (Matthew Bennett, Zack Pearlman, Jacob Davich and Justin Kline) vow to record how and when they lose their virginity, we see their experiences in a mash up of YouTube-esque amateur videos. Also with Nicole Weaver and Krysta Rodriguez. Directed by Andrew Gurland & Huck Botko. [1:26 - R]


thumbs up

"Thanks to its improvised spirit and handheld aesthetic, The Virginity Hit manages to pull off what successful viral videos also do: it feels real, even if in the back of your brain you know it's about as authentic as the girl who quit her job via dry-erase board."

- Jen Yamato

thumbs down

"How can a film be about nothing but sex and yet be so powerfully unsexy? Everything that is wrong about how our culture looks at sex is encapsulated in this movie."

- MaryAnn Johanson
