With so many reviews on the site now it is easy to miss the good ones so I thought a…
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.
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 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.
I will be replacing the word horrible in my vocabulary with the title of this film. "That haircut is Project X." "This lasagna is Project X." "I had a Project X time at school today." "The film Project X is Project X."
This is a feel good movie for me with a feel good soundtrack as well. It makes me want to find a party and just go all out and have some fun. Can't hate on that really.
Almost like my party at home 06.08.13
Could've done without the casual use of racist and homophobic slurs, and on the whole it was achingly unfunny and populated with awful white dudes, but shit did get hella fucked up, so I'm glad I wasn't let down on that front.
Una comedía con un espíritu tan mezquino y un tratamiento a las mujeres como objetos me resulta repulsivo. No es una parodia a este tipo de situaciones, es una oda a la diversión destructiva donde los personajes evolucionan para ser peores personas. Creo que no a propósito, solamente que está mal escrito.
Crazy ass film!
When you watch Project X, the only things you are thinking are these:
"I'd like to go to a party like that. Well until things start setting on fire anyway..."
"This film is actually kinda shit."
