Are you a virgin?

This film presents quite possibly one of the strangest concepts for a movie that I've ever freaking seen in my life. The film essentially chronicles four high school nerds, whom vow to celebrate every time one of them loses their virginity, by smoking a bong. As the years go by, Matt is the last virgin of their group, as he's so socially inept around girls that calling him shy would be considered a drastic understatement, to say the least. Hell, his cute girlfriend, Nicole, says that he's still too shy to know where to put his hands when they make out; even though they've been dating for almost two years. Anyways, to make a long story short, Nicole allows another man to fondle her one night, when she was drunk at a party. This of course upsets our young hero, Matt, so much that they inevitably break up over it.

Sure, his idiotic friends, who seemingly have nothing better to do than to follow him around all the time with a camera, talk him into getting revenge on Nicole before breaking up with her. However, their little plan backfires, and Matt is still a heart broken virgin. Now, one would think his friends would try to be more sympathetic to his lingering feelings to Nicole, but they're not. If anything, they seem more obsessed with getting his a** laid more than he is. Going to various extremes like pimping him out on the internet, as they seemingly cover almost every facet of his life. One girl offers to take his virginity from him that turned out to be a scam. Then when all else fails, his friends try to raise enough money to buy Matt his favorite porn star, Sunny Leone, for a one night of unforgettable sex.

Of course, what's really funny is that when they finally do raise the money to buy her services for Matt, she suddenly becomes morally conflicted about it. Giving them such crap like his first time should be with someone special...blah, blah, blah. Yet, she's not so morally conflicted to give them back the $3500 dollars at least; considering she's suddenly deciding not to live up to her end of the deal. What the hell is up with that? Don't get me wrong, I don't disagree with her assessment on how Matt's first time should be with someone special, but she could have at least offered to give back their money, as it seems like a screwed up double standard if you ask me. However, that's another debate for a different time.  Although, she did allow Matt to fondle her breasts for a few minutes, so I guess that has to count for something.

To get back to the review of this movie, I have to say I'm conflicted.  On the one hand, I can see what they were trying to do with the story, as it was very reminiscent of "American Pie" in lot ways.  Both films depict a bunch of obnoxious high school kids trying anything and everything to lose their virginities, but "The Virginity Hit" adds a twist to the concept by implementing the cheap home video style cinematography made popular by "The Blair Witch Project."  Does it work?  Not exactly.  If anything, the movie comes off rather sad, and not really that funny.  Sure, there were moments around the beginning of the film, where one could get a few chuckles here and there.  However, as the film plays out, the story of Matt trying to lose his virginity soon goes from being a comical misadventure to a sad and pathetic turn of events that you can't help but feel sorry for the guy.  Plus, his friends are really no help either, as they come off as nothing more than a bunch of jerks that care more about their damn internet videos than their suffering friend's needs.  

In the end, it's a comedy that was supposed to be funny, using the unique home video style cinematography made popular by the cult classic, "The Blair Witch Project", turns out to be not only unfunny...it's actually rather sad.  A sad and pathetic attempt to generate laughs based on high school hijinks, and sexual inhibitions of teenagers.

"The Virginity Hit" may have gotten a lot of buzz on the internet due to it's highly controversial subject matter, but it's not worth the hype.  I'd give this movie a one out four, at best.  I thought it had a great unique concept, but it wasn't enough to keep me entertained.  As most of the characters came off like jerks, and the ones that weren't you just felt sorry for.  Truly, one of the most over hyped films of last year.

is it a laughing matter if a girl is still a virgin?

No, I don't think it's a laughing matter if anyone is still a virgin, as people shouldn't feel pressured to have sex before they're ready. :)

Yeah, to be honest, I wasn't going to see this movie either originally, but I only saw it because of how much interest it was drawing imdb, so i figured it would boost traffic for me. Unfortunately, the film isn't that great, so you're not missing much. lol. Anyway, it's good to see you again too Diane, as I miss talking to you as well. :) I hope you're doing okay also. :)

that we should to wait to be mrriaed and give ourselves unto our husband, but realising today's society of girls and young women many of us aren't waiting for that day for the ones that are I salute you. I'm 15 years old and have come close twice to giving my virginity to my current 17 year old boyfriend it's great that he doesn't pressure me he truly loves and respects my feelings on the subject. any sex normal, anal, or oral can be risky to your body so for me I plan to give my V card when I think I can handle the cousequnces of sex and when I'm out my parents house.

Well there's nothing wrong with waiting either. Sex can feel great, but it comes with a lot of responsibility as well. Plus, condoms and birth control aren't always a 100 percent effective, so there's still a small chance of you getting pregnant or getting an STD.

Plus, if you end up getting pregnant, then it would alter your life dramatically, which I'm not sure you'd want to take on at such a young age. Not saying you wouldn't be able to handle it, but even women twice your age have trouble adjusting to life after being knocked up.

From what it sounds like, it seems you have the right idea. And, it's great to know that you have a boyfriend that cares about you enough to not force the issue too much if your not ready yet. Not a lot of guys out there would be that patient with a girl, so kudos to you for having a good head on your shoulder.
