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 spent the whole time wishing Jason would turn up.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
For most of the film I thought I was going to give this a two, possibly a two and a half star rating. But then the flame thrower bullshit and basically the entire last 20 minutes happened and... no.
Three years ago, in this very month, 14-year old me discovered Project X on the internet, and without seeing any trailers that might spoil the fun, decided to check it out. Of course me being a stupid 14-year old boy, I thought it was frickin' awesome and it kind of made me want to be at party like this.
Three years later, and my stupid 17-year old self still really likes it. Of course, he can now see how Project X arguably isn't a very good movie, but that doesn't stop him from having a ton of fun with it.
Look, I can understand when people say this movie's trying too hard to be a riskier Superbad, and how its…
Traka, traka komēdija, kura tiešām parāda jaunā gaismā kādus apmērus var pieņemt ballīte.
Unbelievable that this film is actually based on true events... It is basically 88 minutes of drinking like there's no tomorrow, wrecking stuff, and facing off against the police... They could have just filmed London on a Saturday night, and saved the $12 million budget.
Can this even be counted as a film? It's just a teenager's wet dream of a house party sloppily edited together with a few scenes of "plot". It's filled with mean spirited humour, obnoxious characters and a complete lack of a sense of consequence.
Project X could have strived to be something, but it settles for being a simple spectacle. It could've gone in the direction of seeing how the characters deal with their party getting more and more out of hand, but they just sit back and scream "WOAH THIS IS SO COOL, LOOK AT HOW AWESOME THIS IS".
The movie never really develops at all and to top it all off, the movie ends with the aftermath of…
Please tell me that American teenagers aren't really as twattish as they are portrayed in films like this.
Look, does "Project X" recycle teen movie cliches in order to progress its plot just enough to allow for music-video-esque party sequences? Absolutely. But they're a goddamn blast. Have some fun with the air buddies the clerb, brerg!
