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.
Project X is a really fun comedy film with an innovative concept and it's hilarious.
Buena modernización de las películas de juergas de teenagers. Exagerada y divertida.
Too contrived and comical to be shocking, and too silly to engender any kind of anger, this is, in its (few) best moments, a snapshot commentary on youth culture from the point of view of (frankly unpleasant) teens from privileged backgrounds.
Ultimately, it's just an extended music video; its only substance being that which is ingested orally.
lmao white boys
I liked this movie when I saw it for the first time, but I look back on it, and I really don't know what I was thinking. This barely qualifies as a movie. It's a long home video of stupid kids getting disgustingly drunk and destroying property. Who would find this kind of crap entertaining? I got to college, and realized all the party animals think this movie is an inspiration. Remind we why I don't hang with those people again?
Eurgh, when I see films like this, I despair for the film industry. I mean, seriously, what was the point of this film? It was just a bunch of privileged teenage assholes causing chaos for no reason and then acting surprised when it all goes wrong and not being properly punished for it. I hated the characters, if you can even call them that, the movie made no attempt to develop its protagonists, so I didn't even care what happened to them. If multiple shots of teenagers drinking and having sex is all you need to make a movie these days, then we need to take a long hard look at ourselves. This was awful, a complete waste of time with no redeeming qualities.
Nicer Scheiß, macht Laune sich die Kante zu geben... ;-)
Decently well made found footage raunchy comedy filled with horribly unlikable people. Unlikable characters aren't uncommon to found footage films or raunchy comedies centered around a group of high school kids. Often times, those unlikable characters can be funny or interesting... unfortunately, none of these characters are. Our three leads include a wimpy idiot who's raised by awful people that drive him to make moronic decisions that they are somehow proud of him for doing, a silent dweeb who's few actions show off how much he wants to see naked women and one of the most gratingly obnoxious attempts at comedic relief I've ever seen. They all feel like lesser retreads of the main characters of Superbad, who acted very…
Hilarious. Laughed pretty close to the whole fucking time. Pissed off midget wasn’t that funny and the jealous girl was an annoying plot point. (8.1/10)
I FUCKING LOVE COLOURING
