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.
Another party movie.
and for some reason some films fight for space beneath filth too
It was actually a lot more entertaining than I expected, but I'd never call it a good movie, or even close. The found footage aspect of the film makes no sense, and I'd say the film's first act doesn't do a great job of setting things in motion, but there's not really a plot to begin with.
On top of that, this is a tasteless film that deals with misogyny, animal cruelty, and more.
The Todd Phillips-produced Project X wastes an interesting concept and the final result features dumb humor, a predictable and cliched script that tries way too hard to be funny, shoddy pacing, and detestable characters.
Our generation is so deprived. So I have no idea why this movie is so goddamn enjoyable. Project X is the ULTIMATE party movie and after watching it again, I'm glad to call it one of my favorite films.
Call it a shitty movie, a depraved and senseless farce, or whatever. I'll call it a brutally honest (and at times exaggerated) look at our generation's culture and the lengths one will go to simply get laid, get wasted, and above all, become popular. Movies don't have to be quality films in order to be really good, it has to be brutally honest to what it is. Project X aims to be a raucous, low-life, vile, and disgusting party movie and…
This movie is just a bundle of pointless crap featuring nudity, sex, language, and ovens.
Tengo la sospecha de que esta película está dirigida a un target muy específico: hombres - 15 a 25 años - GSE ABC1.
En mi opinión a medida que la película avanza, el contenido y realismo de las situaciones cae en picada. Lo único que me pareció bueno fue la música, porque es bastante manijera.
I FUCKING LOVE COLOURING
