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.
I spent the whole time wishing Jason would turn up.
This is not a good movie at all. It's ugly, incoherent, trashy, ridiculous, misogynistic and dumb beyond all belief, but boy oh boy did I have a fun time with it.
I dunno exactly what it is, but with both Project Almanac and now Project X, there's just something about these YOLO generation found footage films that makes me love them.
Nothing really funny in this one, but the party sequences were really good.
Would have actually worked better just as a party documentary
incoherent garbage but it's so funny
One star for boobs.
One star for the music.
One star for the midget in the oven.
Project X è il racconto della festa a cui tutti avrebbero voluto partecipare a 18 anni, ma che nessuno è stato così coglione da organizzare.
my friends made me watch this
It features some of the most loathsome and vile characters imaginable, featuring misogynistic humour and a message that suggest that everything will be all right as long as you're popular, but it captures that juvenile, male adolescent teen spirit like no other film before it. Which is probably why most critics hated it: they can't bare to imagine that they may have been once like that themselves.
Película que prometía sorprender con su "megafiestón" pero que finalmente se queda en un vago intento de imitar a los personajes de "Supersalidos", por cierto, mucho mas buena y mítica que sobre la cual estoy escribiendo. Además aunque muchos momentos son graciosos, personalmente lo he pasado mal viendo cómo los chavales destrozaban la casa; no podía parar de pensar: ¿Eso cuánto costará? ó ¿Qué cara pondrán los pobres padres?
Por último, no es que me dañe la vista ver como cerca de 100 tetas, pero preferiría más partes masculinas.
I liked the fact that there weren't any sort of moral undertones guiding the narrative. Three guys want to throw an epic party. Three guys throw an epic party.
