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.
I mean it's fun to watch, but not anything super enjoyable.
Why do I still watch these movies
The coolest thing about this movie is that my friend is one of the party girls.
I still enjoy this and consider the climax to be one of the best of the past five years. Love the payoff.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Oh my GOSH. I seriously hated this movie. I usually give movies the benefit of the doubt, so it's not often that a movie just makes me really angry, but this one did. I was so frustrated throughout at the disgusting behavior of literally every person we see, and then in the end the film and characters don't even apologize for that. I don't think every movie needs to have a moral--sometimes movies just show people behaving like people, flaws (sometimes major ones) and all, and I'm all right with that. But the fact that this one had such one note, shallow, dispicable characters and seemed to rejoice in their actions was not okay with me.
Plus, after all the…
The only reason I watched this film was because of a deal I made with a friend: if I watch this movie, he'll watch Oldboy.
He better fucking watch Oldboy.
Well the party looked cool
I FUCKING LOVE COLOURING
