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.

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.
The 5th movie I watched on a rainy Wednesday marathon movie day for me. This easily turned out to be the best movie I watched today.
In this one 3 high school seniors throw a birthday party to make a name for themselves. As the night progresses, things spiral out of control as word of the party spreads.
I usually do not like "found footage" movies....but I thought it was used to great affect in this movie. This is one of the few times a movie party really seemed to be out of control. Compare this party to Tom Hanks' party in Bachelor Party. Final thought: I admit that many of the jokes fall flat....but the way the movie moves to the pinnacle of the party is pretty impressive.....this is a movie that I will see again.
Si la ves como un documental de lo jodida que está la generación de los millennials, toma mucho más sentido. Pero desgraciadamente Project X sólo está bonita, no es particularmente interesante, graciosa o edgy como para que valga la pena sentarse a ver una hora y media de una fiesta a la que no fuiste invitado (y, al parecer, todo el mundo sí).
Todo esto lo hizo This Is The End mil veces mejor.
As far as high school parties go, this one pushes the envelope with extreme vulgarity and crassness. I was confused as to whether Project X is meant as a comedy or a satire, but it doesn't seem to follow through as either, which was disappointing. In the end, it seems to glorify bad behaviour, which is disturbing - and in days of instant messaging and facebook, probably downright irresponsible. However, watching how the party gradually spirals out of control, leading to a police blitz and media coverage, is somehow mesmerizing.
Funny film fellas
"Oh, I live alone,"
The film itself is not the best but the music makes it amazing. everyone wants to be at a party like this!
Auch nach dem 2. oder 3. Mal kucken macht der immernoch Spaß.
Die partyszenen und die Musik dazu sind einfach gut und machen Lust auf Party.
Das ende ist ein bisschen over the top aber irgendwas musste sie ja als Höhepunkt bringen.
"Just make sure you wear somethin tight"
I know it's cool to hate on Project X and you know what? fair enough. I understand it's not for most people in the slightest. I myself can't help to find myself loving this film whenever I watch it. Do I feel like an idiot for it? sometimes.

Honestly? I only cared about the dog's safety and hoping Thomas won't jump to his death when he stood on the roof clearly questioning his life choices.
