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.
One of those films where some college kids start a party to see some tits and get a name for themselves. Things start to get mental, so the party is shut down.
Well made and I did enjoy the 'found footage'.
"Give me back my fucking gnome!!"
Incredibly stupid and juvenile, but an absolute joy to watch.
Entertaining but hampered by the fact that it's meant for teens and college kids. This film gets really close to being something special, but refuses to cross the line out of fear it will alienate its viewership.
Completely unlikeable characters who don’ t learn anything or show any remorse at any point or any reason for us to care about them. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a film in which it was not unreasonable to hope for all of the characters to die by the end. It’s garbage.
Score: 2 Out of 5
"Give me back my fucking gnome"
I'm going to hell for watching this movie. It was a very original concept as well as an interesting motive, but a little hollow
Podría ser un videoclip de 15 minutos y tendrías lo mismo.
Project X and Sky High will always and forever be symbols of the friendship between me and my best friend.
If you like terrible films filled with boobs, booze and drugs, then this is probably your movie
