Project X is a million miles away from the 1987 Matthew Broderick film of the same name. Whereas that was a thought-provoking film about military experiments on apes, this film is about a social experiment in hosting the ultimate, "game-changing" party in an otherwise quiet California suburb. The gimmick here is that it's sourced from found footage, which seems a natural fit for the story of a seemingly normal "loser" teenager who defies his parents' expectations and that of his peers in hosting a birthday party. It quickly snowballs out of control, building to excessive, apocalyptic proportions... It's no surprise to see The Hangover director Todd Phillips onboard as a producer, as his sticky fingerprints are clearly all over this film. For the most part, it's entertaining, funny and well-acted by its enthusiastic cast. There's no need to bring the little gray cells, as Hercule Poirot might say. Switch off, sit back and watch the kind of party you wish you could cross over into the movie world for.
This movie is so so so horrible. Honestly there are few things as obnoxious as everyone in this movie. That wouldn't be that big a deal if there were actually any jokes in it. It feels like it was 15yr old, a really s**tty 15yr old.
Reminded me of the 48 Go Conquer ads. s**t.
I have mixed reviews on this its watchable but wouldn't buy it on DVD and wouldn't see it again
I enjoyed it but at the start the actors portrayal of average teenagers was cringe worthy, but after a while the overall movie got better. I found myself wishing that the three main actors in superbad were the three in this movie as it would have had a much more authentic feel to it. overall moive wasn't half bad.
