What's really going on in that neighbourhood?
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 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.
a terrible party film with boobs, booze and drugs, go crazy kids
I have no idea what this movie tries to be. I just know that there are a lot of assholes in Project X.
"'Til the break of dawn!"
The best way to enjoy Project X is to just kick back and watch with your friends.
Because as an actual movie, its trash.
is this a classic already?
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
A film for a generation. A landmark for modern teenage culture.
"Tonight's about changing the game."
And change the game they did. Project X has had such a gigantic impact on our generation, it's incredible. Not many films have had such a pop culture impact. You won't hear any teenagers say "This party tonight is gonna be awesome! It's gonna be some fuckin' Hot Tub Time Machine type shit!" No. They're gonna say Project X. And yeah. It's mindless, it's vulgar, it's completely outlandish, but it doesn't really matter, cause it's Project X.
The first time I saw this movie, I was 13 years old. I hated it. I gave it .5 of a star. I called it garbage. I…
Esse filme não tem nada de novidade.. A gente já está saturado da história do "loser" da high school... Em termos bem regionais, do "tabacudo do colégio". Estamos cansados desses filmes de comédia que beira um estudo sobre a deprimente vida de um adolescente "sem vida social". Chega de Superbad genérico. Chega! Mas chega...
Easily the worst film I have ever been forced to see.
A house party, ecstasy, bouncy castles and a seriously pissed dwarf, what more do you need.
"but I don't care what they say
i'm in love with you
they try to pull me away
