From producers Judd Apatow (THE 40-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN), Susan Arnold and Donna Arkoff Roth (GROSSE POINT BLANK), director Steven Brill (WITHOUT A PADDLE) and screenwriters Kristofor Brown (BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD) and Seth Rogen (SUPERBAD) comes a fresh comedy about three young outcasts confronting their high school misfortunes with the help of a down-and-out soldier of fortune.
It all begins on the first day of high school, when a trio of anxious freshmen - chubby Ryan (Troy Gentile, NACHO LIBRE), freakishly skinny Wade (newcomer Nate Hartley) and their shrimpy tagalong, Emmit (David Dorfman, THE RING) - become the instant target of the school's ultimate school bully, Filkins (Alex Frost, ELEPHANT). As what they were hoping to be the best years of their lives are suddenly turned into a daily living hell, the boys realise they have only one choice - to hire their own personal bodyguard.
Enter Drillbit Taylor (Owen Wilson), not the best but definitely the cheapest of the mercenaries, hit men and bodyguards who answer their online ad. Drillbit is steely, dangerous and skilled in covert black-ops and exotic martial arts. He's also a complete fraudů
