An alcohol-fueled journey that becomes progressively more farfetched and, as the film's run time ticks on, increasingly unwatchable.
| Original Score: C+
A Hangover-in-college romp that's genial enough but distinctly short on really funny comic moments.
This movie is filled with the kind of jokes you'd expect to see on an Internet meme -- something that may elicit at most a chuckle.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
These guys get into more trouble in one night than members of this film's target audience will encounter in their entire college lives.
| Original Score: 2/5
21 and Over desperately wants to be The Hangover and Superbad for a new generation of moviegoers, but it is nowhere as funny or as memorable as any of those movies.
| Original Score: 2/10
An enjoyable third act can't save this uneven comedy, which strives to be more serious than it should.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
A silly comedy that is rife with influences from those that came before.
The film doesn't hit nearly as hard as it should, and it's a shame that this might be how anyone would spend their 21st birthday.
One of many recent films that could serve as a recruiting advertisement for Al Qaeda.
| Original Score: 1/5
Scrapes the bottom of the barrel then shotguns it into our faces.
The real problem with 21 and Over is that it swipes most of its material from better movies.
Boozed-up students might enjoy it, but it's just going to make anyone over the age of 21 feel really old.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
| Original Score: 2/4
Lacks the laughs to hold up the appeal of a dumb comedy.
( ... ) this flatlines so often it's impossible to tell where the actual low point is. Is it the slow motion vomiting shot from multiple angles? Or a grown man standing on a bar ready to relieve himself over everyone else?
The story wants to be deliciously outrageous and transgressive. It is just tawdry and juvenile.
| Original Score: C
...condenses the familiarity of so many other party-hearty romps into 93 harried minutes.
By the dictates of the boys-will-be-boys party genre, 21 and Over is so tame that it barely manages to even be offensive.
| Original Score: .5/4
The so-called comedy 21 & Over is offensive. Not because it's racist, sexist, homophobic and cruel, but because it's racist, sexist, homophobic and cruel in a dull, monotonous way.
The plot has a certain energy but the characters are obnoxious and the gags fall flat.
