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.
Brilliantly fun Movie!
Dumbest movie maybe eva
Second viewing. Not as cool as the first time and I see the flaws more clearly -- still pretty rad though. A cool movie to watch if you're a shy dude like me who never goes to parties, but wants to see what it's like to see everyone act idiotic as fuck.
Ew. No. Why???
Not even remotely entertaining
Extremely stupid there's no point to it
I watched it bc miles teller is in it but only for like 5 mins
Only got through half of it
As a high school senior living in an upper-middle class california suburb, I can honestly say that -- with the exception of the entire neighborhood being burnt down and the accidental riot -- this is exactly what high school parties are like, and watching it from this point of view was the funniest experience of my life. I thought this would be such a dumb movie, but I was so wrong....it is a modern masterpiece.
And one whole star is dedicated to Miles Teller's cameo. You can hit up my parties anytime, Miles.
Based on recommendation from a friend, I watched his favorite movie Project X. I do not trust my friend's taste in film.
Project X follows three loser friends who, for one of their birthdays, decide to throw the most epic, craziest, balls-to-the-wall high school party of all time. It's a concept that has worked before, but the key difference is the characters. No one in Project X is likable. Even the nerdy kids who we are meant to root for are ultimately mean-spirited, over-priveleged, and simply unfunny, and so to see them delve into debauchery does not feel satisfying but rather tedious. They deserve to have their house and neighborhood trashed, because even though they play innocent, they facilitate so…
This is the movie everybody was afraid "The Virginity Hit" was going to be. A bunch of stupid, horrible teenagers throw a massive party that ends with an entire neighborhood being nearly burned to the ground. The "found footage" problems are, for once, the least obnoxious things about the movie. But at least the lead character learns an important lesson: if your parents are out of town, drive your dad's car into a pool and set the house on fire, and your dad will finally respect you.
I kinda love this film.
I love the brisk 90 minute runtime. I love the pacing. I love the beautiful girls. I love the soundtrack. I love the ever escalating insanity. I love that crane shot of the street with the trees on fire.
Do we REALLY need that romantic-teen plot element?
IMHO, It could be a better movie. A little bit more disastrous. More strange events and stuff.
I felt a void inside me when it ended.
I FUCKING LOVE COLOURING
