Three high school seniors throw a party to make a name for themselves. As the night progresses, things spiral out of control as word of the party spreads.
Project X: I love you so much Superbad, I want to be just like you when I grow up.
Superbad: Fuck you Project X
I’m at least fifteen years too old for this film and now feel considerably older having just sat through such a mean-spirited movie populated with detestable dickheads. Where’s the heart, the jokes and love for the underdog that characterise the teen sex comedy? It appears to have been lost amongst a sea of vomit and debauchery that, even at its basest form of teenage wish fulfillment, just isn’t remotely pleasurable to watch. Project X doesn’t even attempt to tell a story or develop characters, it doesn’t even seem interested in telling any jokes as it is too busy revelling in privileged rich kids doing whatever they want without any fear of punishment.
It’s a dispiriting and obnoxious movie that is the absolute nadir of the teen comedy genre.
I was going to write a review for this last night, but I felt it would be better for my own mental welfare if I waited until I was sober and more emotionally stable.
I'm not a professional reviewer. so I don't take it upon myself to watch every movie I come across, no matter how bad it is. There are movies I refuse to see because I hate the idea of wasting such time that I could contribute to something better (aka anything else). I don't mind watching certain bad movies so I can have the opportunity to rip them a new asshole. As writers/reviewers, it can be rather cathartic for us to unload on these turds. But then…
A very big candidate for worst film of the year, Project X made me absolutely furious whilst watching it, and I haven't felt that wound up by a film since Grown Ups. People who know me know that's a big deal.
The film is an utter shitpile for many reasons but the most egregious offenders which come to mind is the sheer laziness of the filmmaking. OK, you've given people loads of cameras. Great. And what do we see? High school kids getting drunk, breaking things and getting off with each other. For about an hour of the runtime. Brilliant. The film gets boring as soon as the party starts and considering it only stops in the last 5 minutes…
I'm glad X marks the spot because then I at least know where to kick.
I'd like to offer my sincerest apologies to those in the Letterboxd community who have issued forth warnings concerning this film.
I am Moron Man and watched it anyway.
My eyes hurt.
The 5th movie I watched on a rainy Wednesday marathon movie day for me. This easily turned out to be the best movie I watched today.
In this one 3 high school seniors throw a birthday party to make a name for themselves. As the night progresses, things spiral out of control as word of the party spreads.
I usually do not like "found footage" movies....but I thought it was used to great affect in this movie. This is one of the few times a movie party really seemed to be out of control. Compare this party to Tom Hanks' party in Bachelor Party. Final thought: I admit that many of the jokes fall flat....but the way the movie moves to the pinnacle of the party is pretty impressive.....this is a movie that I will see again.
this was a very fun movie to watch! had an amazing time watching it.
Better than Superbad. Didn't need the midget.
I actually liked this film, :/
I get the feeling I liked this movie more than most people did...
teenage boys are shit this movie is shit
In person, Slavoj Zizek said to see this film as it holds the answers to humanity's ills. Basically this film is a one way journey into nihil.
This is one hell of a party film. Although initial portions of the film reminds us of countless other high school party films complete with clichés like 3 friends a fat boy with glasses, a irresponsible youth and another who is trying to breakout. What starts as a small party spirals out of control and ends up being one bad ass party of all time. Characters are at time fun and deplorable just like the film. I enjoyed greatly during the film but again...
Si la ves como un documental de lo jodida que está la generación de los millennials, toma mucho más sentido. Pero desgraciadamente Project X sólo está bonita, no es particularmente interesante, graciosa o edgy como para que valga la pena sentarse a ver una hora y media de una fiesta a la que no fuiste invitado (y, al parecer, todo el mundo sí).
Todo esto lo hizo This Is The End mil veces mejor.
