You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
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.
Is this what a high school party is like? I wouldn't know cause like I've never been invited to one.
(In all seriousness this movie was cringey af)
So many questions to ask... Firstly, why did I watch this film? Do these type of house party's actually exist? Did I live a deprived childhood not attending said parties?
The only funny thing about this film is that it's shit. And apparently dwarves being forced into ovens...
Not that I have anything against films like this... I loved Superbad, but at least that film had decent characters and was more than just a straight-up montage of boobs, excessive drinking and vandalism. :')
A couple years ago I'd have been digging this!
a cultural litmus test. end this shortly after H•A•M climaxes and you’ve got a truly terrifying picture; as is, it’s a phony party comedy that – although it avoids the consequences – extracts legitimate horror from its complex portrait of the modern teen’s borderline lack thereof masquerading as an escapist romp until you realize whose POV anchors this thing. always surprised by the amount of plot and dialogue in this, and always additionally surprised by how abrasive it all is; the horrors of this picture are hidden behind the excessive pop appeal of millennial humor that exposes its detriments. I know people hate this, but this is exactly what it was always going to be.

Never thought I'd watch this, but a friend put it on despite my reluctance (and I thought we'd leave before the half way mark).
Little focus on characters + completely cliche character psychologies, when there is focus = next to no drama (especially any that's original).
Even though I didn't actively hate it while watching it (I almost never hate or try to hate a movie,) this movie didn't even have its moments - almost any movie (especially of the "party" genre - hey look I realized there's a new comedy subgenre) has its moments. I guess it's nice to see so many girls topless but after a while that becomes gratuitous. Instead of being able to appreciate something I…
four years later, and there's still something about this film that keeps me coming back.
intentional or not, this wholly and absolutely captures the entirety of the lust of the stereotypical high school student. the editing, the soundtrack, the flashy visuals, they all just flow so damn smoothly. it all blends into an enormously fun and engaging movie. it never takes itself too seriously. it maintains the same ambition as its protagonists. it achieves exactly what it sets out to do, and then stumbles ass-backwards into something extraordinary. this film has been around for my whole high school career and if i had a dime for every time somebody referenced PROJECT X while talking about a party, i'd be a…

Is it entertaining as hell?: Why yes, it is
