Drillbit Taylor tells the story of three nerdy adolescents who, on their very first day of high school, find themselves the target of a merciless, near psychotic bully.

The friends band together and pool their funds to hire a personal bodyguard, Drillbit Taylor.

Taylor, a homeless beach bum and AWOL army soldier, plans to con the kids just long enough to pull together the money needed to amscray off to Canada.

A momentary flash of a conscience and a growing crush on a teacher at the boys' high school, however, compels Drillbit to stick around, do the right thing, and ultimately save the day.

This movie is rated PG-13 for crude sexual references throughout, strong bullying, language, drug references and partial nudity.
