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.
Fuck this movie
Bester Party film aller Zeiten von einer harmlosen Geburtstags Party wird eine von Anarchie verwüstete Nachbarschaft ehrlich!
If you are looking for a movie with one hell of a party and a midget in an oven... you can stop looking now!
" Is this big enough to be cool?"
Absolutely vile, disgusting, crude, and unadulterated filth.
I love it.
Yes, I love Project X, and I'm not ashamed. Is it immature, rude, crass? Hell yeah, but there's nothing wrong with indulging within it's teenage MTV millennial fantasy of a world. I'm not saying it's a good movie. The acting is pretty terrible in spots, the characters lack any real growth, and there's barely a plot, other then having a good time. Yet, this is exactly what Project X accomplishes.
Admiringly, I was within the targeted demographic upon release, and still am. I'm not the biggest party animal, but I can't help wanting to attend a party that essentially burns down a neighborhood. Weather I'm one of the Superbad wannabe replica main characters, a jock, a nerd, whoever. Most likely,…
Stupidly, disgustingly immature "comedy." I don't understand how this waste of space can make any one single person laugh. Do yourself a favor-- stick to the far superior "Superbad."
(Any argument for this movie will be flimsy as hell so I'm going to go head first. No regrets. )
Let me start this off by saying that Project X , objectively, is a terrible film. It's crass, rude, mean spirited, hedonistic, indulgent, vulgar, irreverent, and disgusting; and that's just touching the surface with adjectives. So why do I hold this movie so dear to me? I love this movie because I'm a 19-year old millennial; I was raised Catholic, didn't have a car, went to an all-boys private school, and lived 45 mins away from a majority of my friends. I wasn't part of the popular crowd nor was I a jock so my social life in high school…
I FUCKING LOVE COLOURING
