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…
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.
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 wanted to check up on this movie, just to make sure it's still the pretentious, snotty, "LOOK HOW COOL THIS SHIT IS", "LOOK, WE'RE GONNA FUCK THIS CAR UP", "WHY AREN'T YOU LAUGHING???????", "I'M SCREAMING AT YOU, LOOK AT ME" pile of shit I remember it to be.
lame as hell, looks like crap, and filled with the worst actors ever

That is a really fun movie. So entertaining, so amusing. Yes, it might have some clichés, yes, the characters might not be analyzed in the deepest way, yes, there might be not much of a moral message, yes, some humor might not be super original, yes, it might not be completely realistic. But the movie never supposed to be any of this. If you are looking for super artistic- clever-Oscar film, you are in the wrong place. But if you are looking for great entertainment, simple laughs and easy night with friends- that stuff is for you. Makes you recall all the crazy parties you have been through )))). Whatever some people say, the 'making…
Project X contains all the makings of a great and groundbreaking film. Its ultimate failure can be attributed to its frustrating last minute orthodoxy.
In all honesty, Project X delivers some crazy and insane moments, but it’s not enough to call this a satisfying teen comedy or one of the greatest all of time. Not all that funny, especially coming from the character, Costa, who’s really annoying throughout the majority of the entire movie and no need to be found footage. This felt fake and really unrealistic that this kind of party would ever happen or even teenagers would reduce to this much drinking and drugs. This isn’t the next Animal House, or Porky’s or even Superbad. Superbad it is not.
Fuck off, trash movie.
‘Project X’ is the sort of film you don’t really want to be seen to have liked because it attempts to fulfil a fantasy that is hedonistic, misogynist and altogether disreputable. To be honest I’m not particularly sure why I decided to watch it. However, all I can say is that it actually has a lot more going for it than you would expect. It’s genuinely funny, not just in the stupid stunts (which actually aren’t funny at all) but in the dialogue between the three protagonists. It also works a slow-burning thriller, playing on the fact that you don’t want Thomas to get into trouble as the party builds and builds. A lot of the responsibility for this lies…

I have to get this out of the way...the consensus is wrong! Unoriginal? Yes, there have been party movies before, but none that get as crazy as this one! And "predictably mean-spirited debauchery?" This movie was not predictable! And there was nothing mean spirited! It was Thomas's birthday, and his friends wanted to throw a party! Anyway, now my thoughts! I guess I am in the minority because I loved every second of this movie! I thought there were plenty of laughs, and there were great performances all around, as well as interesting characters! Everything else was also great. And it all ended with a great finale! Overall, I honestly loved everything about this movie, and loved watching it the whole time! I think it is perfect!
Look these are just the ones off of the top of my head, please leave your suggestions.
