Project X
Directed by Nima Nourizadeh
Warner Bros.
Opens March 2

“There’s a midget in the oven!” is about as inspired as the dialogue and set pieces get in this queasy-making entertainment about a 17-year-old dude’s birthday bacchanalia. Produced by The Hangover’s Todd Phillips, Project X repackages that franchise’s skull-numbing hedonism without consequences and second-nature misogyny for the SAT-taking set, while reassuring young men that there’s no more ennobling purpose than to “get high, fuck bitches.” His parents out of town for the weekend, Thomas (Thomas Mann), a meek, overlooked senior at his Pasadena high school, tries to improve his popularity by hosting a blowout—an event aggressively publicized by his Queens-transplant friend Costa (Oliver Cooper, strongly resembling a junior Brett Ratner and accurately described by one partygoer as “that dick in a sweater-vest”). While the rager—presented as the spliced “documentary” footage of a friend with a camera and hundreds of mobile devices—spirals into chaos (a car at the bottom of the pool, gobbled-up ecstasy), plenty of teenage titties are bared, a helpful reminder to adolescent girls that they can grow up to be actresses in Hollywood comedies. When an avenging pot dealer shows up with a flamethrower, the wish is only for these little fuckers to be set ablaze.

There's a reason why your writing reviews and not movies!

Everyone is entitled to opinions, including Melissa. The movie clearly is based off of immaturity and human ignorance. Humans should act higher up than animals, but movies like this prove there are still fools without self control and logic. And people who cal people "cunts," please extend your vocabulary.

Melisa, I assume you where one of those bitches that got fucked in high school. Go play with a dildo cunt.

Who the hell allowed you to write movie reviews? You suck at writing more than Gizmodo writers. I'm not saying this because you hate the movie, because I don't want to see the movie, I think it's going to suck. Please though, stop writing.

Nine times out of Ten if a reviewer decides a movie is bad because someone is "fucking bitches" then the reviewer is a female....not a surprise here that the reviewer is a female. Is this a good movie or a bad movie? We'll never know because the woman reviewing it will only praise a movie about a world full of choirboys and nuns.

Wasn't Project X an 80s movie with Matthew Broderick and some apes?

Wow... Looks like two commenters are so insecure they have to trash other peoples reviews on the internet. I forgot in douchebag internet troll land reviewers cant use slang like fuckers and titties in a review alongside with "intelligent vocabulary". You use one or the other Melissa, Jesus!!!

I like how you try to use intelligent vocabulary, "skull numbing hedonism...second nature misogyny" but then give up and use words like titties and call them "fuckers" by the end. Did you get tired of looking up synonyms in the dictionary? Nice writing clown.

I totally agree with you. Everyone seems to have an opinion, not a review. Anymore its given by someone who hates the genre going in, or some wanna be moviemaker who prefers to tell us how THEY think the movie should have been done. I know, lets review the reviewers!
