The virginity hit is like a string of youtube videos, or is supposed to be a string of youtube videos that chronicles the losing of the virginity of young high-school or college student named Matt. Zack and Matt are best buddies and adoptive brothers; and Zack is a video camera shutterbug and records everything. The entire movie is presented as a series of amateur videos shot by Zack, differing in quality from cell phone like grainy videos to high quality digital camera shots. This amazingly doesn't detract from the movie and gives the movie a real manic energy; though surprisingly the presentation doesn't lend well to being relatable and real (or fake as Youtube viewers would call it).
The cast form a tight cocoon around themselves and you get the feeling that you're watching them and their lives more than the story. There is only basic explanations to who they are and their backgrounds but as in a youtube video, it's like a slice of someone's life. Having said that, the jokes and events are hilarious and scripted well. Perhaps one of the greatest revelations of the movie is that it is possible to make a 2 hour youtube video and make one that is highly entertaining and that the usual teen comedy story can seem so fresh when presented this manner.
The "hit" in the title comes from the ritual of taking a hit from a bong after the loss of virginity. I found it a bit surprising that drugs and alcohol were so easily obtainable but sex wasn't but maybe that's just me. This is a must see movie if you like movies like American Pie. Overall, this is a very entertaining and funny movie.
