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.
The 5th movie I watched on a rainy Wednesday marathon movie day for me. This easily turned out to be the best movie I watched today.
In this one 3 high school seniors throw a birthday party to make a name for themselves. As the night progresses, things spiral out of control as word of the party spreads.
I usually do not like "found footage" movies....but I thought it was used to great affect in this movie. This is one of the few times a movie party really seemed to be out of control. Compare this party to Tom Hanks' party in Bachelor Party. Final thought: I admit that many of the jokes fall flat....but the way the movie moves to the pinnacle of the party is pretty impressive.....this is a movie that I will see again.
I know i shouldnt enjoy this but how could you not, three college seniors decided to throw a birthday party and ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE, to be fair this film reminds me of a teenage version of THE HANGOVER, it is full of laughs full of dirty jokes but man...you really should watch this.
Project X is an example of a movie that I shouldn't of liked but I very much did. The characters. Are likable and the movie was a nonstop ride of fun. The only
Problem is that it should've been a smarter movie than It was.
Impressive film making, with characters that you hope burn in Hell.
I don't know why I chose this movie to watch on my last day off from school, but I did. This movie is really.. really stupid. The only thing is, I actally enjoyed parts of it. Don't hate me for this, but I enjoyed project x... Some times. For the most part, this movie is very unrealistic and over exaggerated. The part that made me enjoy it the most was the characters. The tree main characters in this movie are the ones that made the movie for me. I'm not saying the movie is good, but it is an enjoyable movie if you like watching parties go insane. I didn't buy the found footage aspect, cause there were many times…
I know this was marketed as a comedy, but I didn't see it as one. I think not seeing it as one is essential to getting what the film is about. It's about a party. It's meant to be about a party. That's it. Is that a bad idea for a movie? Ask the kids across the country who threw Project-X inspired parties for weeks after the film opened. It made an impact on them; it made an impact on me. What it does best is show the madness and nihilism of the party scene like few other films I've watched. I've never been to a party like that, but I was convinced from watching the film that that's what…
Midget in an oven. Do I need to say anymore?
I am still pretty pissed I bought this on iTunes. I got caught up in the hype and told myself that maybe it will be another, "Superbad" to "Hangover" type film. I was wrong and I fell for the marketing trap.
"Project X," tries to be original and over the top, but it is incredibly forced. Its pretty much, "see look we can be funny kids too!" This film was obviously made to try and capitalize on the uptick of crazy comedies and it is subpar.
The actors aren't very funny and the roles are cliched. Shy kid thawing party trying to get friends. Crazy best friend ready to mess crap up. The list goes on and on.
I wish I could get my money and time back.

Project X is a hollow movie. The film tries to support itself on our leading characters, but in the end, I found myself not caring about them whatsoever. They lacked development, and focused more on their characterizations, which made me not want to root for them mainly because everything they did made them come off as ignorant and annoying people. The only characters I got a kick out of was the security guard kids, who were pretty enjoyable to watch. The three leading performances were just so maddening, and like I mentioned before, there characters did not help at all.
I enjoyed a majority of the music choices Project X presented to us. It did capture some of the moments,…
