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.
Marrant mais c'est bien tout.
Halfway through this movie i asked myself "this is it?" But no, it wasn't it. It got a lot worse. The movie is absolutely pointless. It's only reason to exist is so teenagers will pay to see it and be like "woah I wish that was ME getting lit on fire by a crazy guy with a flamethrower! Awesome!" but to literally anyone else besides unintelligent teens, this movie is garbage. The characters are annoying, the plot is non-existent, and it's just really stupid. The basic moral of the story is: who cares about being responsible, getting a college education, not having a criminal record, and not destroying all of your parents things when you're popular? That's all that matters.…
pretty fun to watch didnt expect to like it but these types of movies are pretty cool more or less.
Project X is one of my favorites. I'm not kidding. I'm also not kidding about the fact that I honestly think Project X is satire.
Look at the plot of the film. There's a party, and some crazy stuff happens. Eventually, the scores of teenagers are all drunk beyond inebriated, and... they militarize to ward off the police. They're not stumbling over and mumbling, they're even watching the news, keeping themselves posted on the status of the police. They're not unconscious, they're organized. And, when all of the shit has irreversibly hit the fan, the character who instigated it all, Costa, states it was all because he was "trying to get some pussy." This debauchery goes so out of control,…
Don't go in expecting a Citizen Kane. It's a fun movie.
This is not a good movie at all. It's ugly, incoherent, trashy, ridiculous, misogynistic and dumb beyond all belief, but boy oh boy did I have a fun time with it.
I dunno exactly what it is, but with both Project Almanac and now Project X, there's just something about these YOLO generation found footage films that makes me love them.
Nothing really funny in this one, but the party sequences were really good.
Would have actually worked better just as a party documentary
