Project X

Three unpopular high schoolers attempt to boost their popularity status with the mother of all parties in this comedy, filmed handycam-style, from producer Todd Phillips (The Hangover).

But the raunchy party spirals wildly out of control when word spreads and a massive crowd descends. Dreams are shattered, records are broken and legends are born. The movie's stars are newcomers who scored their roles through a US-wide open casting call.

What can I say....

I dont know if Im being generous to give this film 3 stars but I will. The first half of the movie dragged and didnt have much going for it at all, 2 people got up and left the cinema! The last half was better, but still the characters had no substance, the storyline (as like many movies) was a bit flat. Without ruining it for others I will say it did get...

Bears a cravenly piggish attitude toward rewarding socially unacceptable behavior that feels unseemly rather than exciting, so-what rather than so-funny and obvious instead of new.

This movie wasn’t intended for me. I should be grateful for that.

A grimly depressing, glumly unfunny teensploitation comedy.

A mangy teenage house-party bacchanal.

Witless, charmless, teen twaddle. Let’s take all prints off the film, and bury them. Don’t bother marking the spot with an X.

The film looks like shit, the characters are boors, and it's as sloppily put-together as the home movie it pretends to be. Project X's commitment to its crudity almost redeems it, though.
