His dream comes within reach when clever nerd Wade, has fat friend Ryan ‘T-dog’ and cocky shrimp Jim, all new to high-school, are bullied so badly by emancipated Filkins and his buddies that they advertise for a bodyguard. Only Drillbit seems affordable and not crazy, so he’s hired and drains their pocket-money and home content. He’s clueless how to protect them but gives them (bogus) self-defense classes.
Plot: Three kids hire a low-budget bodyguard to protect them from the playground bully, not realising he is just a homeless beggar and petty thief looking for some easy cash.

Not as funny as I expected
I wouldn’t say it’s a waste of time but also I wouldn’t spend it that way again. Its a movie that it has some funny moments but they pass too fast turning it into a nonsense film.Maybe it is a entertaining movie for kids and teens because of all the situations. The story about Two kids hire a low-budget bodyguard to protect them from the playground bully. The cast is decent but the acting is weak. Owen Wilson in maybe his worst performance, I don’t know but I feel him uncomfortable with this role, the three kids are good, specially Tony Gentile (the fat one). In conclusion, It was intended to be and entertaining movie and it was for a while.
What amazes me about everyone’s reaction
Yes, Owen Wilson is always likable in these kinds of roles. Yes, it has more than a few funny moments. Yes, it’s easy to like the heroes and hate the bad guys. Why does no one find it disturbing?? Because it makes a happy ending, typical Hollywood wrap up, to violent, disturbing, deeply troubling and criminal harassment and torture. Only people who don’t care and don’t ever think about why they like what they like and how the film-makers manipulate, would not object here. It is an irresponsible film and really glorifies the problem by making it a fun buddy caper. I hate to sound so uptight, and I don’t think I really am, but some of the sadistic attacks on these children made me cringe and rage as I saw it… not because it went too far, but because to some degree this sort of thing happens everyday, and the system, the school, the parents the other students stand by just as they do in this film. However, here we have a fantasy about some crazy solution. It would be fun and cute if it weren’t such a vile topic – one nobody seems to take seriously. If you have children, or know children or care about children in the public school system, this film should not be fun for you. Do not suspend your disbelief. Is rape a fun topic for a happy ending buddy comedy? Is murder? Is child beating? Domestic violence? No? Really?? No one would say yes to any of that? Then why is a topic that can lead to things like school shootings and suicide, not to mention the endless fear, deep emtional damage and daily desperation and unhappiness of many children’s lives, so easily translated into a cutesy buddy film with a happy, feel-good ending? The makers of this film should bear some scrutiny for exploiting such an issue, for diminishing it and making light of it. As I started by saying, yes, there is fun involved, but those who are so immune to the ugliness portrayed here, the wrong, the real problem that goes as ignored in the real world as it does here, that this is enough, should do some thinking when they watch films.
