Critic Review - ReelViews

Ultimately, Project X is an example of why gimmicks rarely work, especially once the new shine has worn off.

its not supposed to be an oscar nominated movie, its a brilliant idea to get a shitload of money from people to see it and its successful. You just need to get the stick out of your ass, you depressing over critical douche.

You need to get that dick out of your ass! It was a sick as movie and I dont know why all these old as critics even bother watching these movies that aren't even in their age group. For a college student this movie was amazing and delivered what I expected. Old ppl need to stay the fuck out of the movie theater

Oh really bro? It was a sick movie bro? Sweet bro I love looking at all those slampieces bro. Fuck a plot or character bro just look at all the tits bro. Newsflash, cupcake, all the college kids are actually out partying on a Friday night instead of watching this dump. I hope you had your fun paying $12 just to pretend you were at a party for 1 hour you herb.

Jose M, for a raving homosexual you sound pretty angry. I am 56, went to see the film, and wish you had been there shooting your fool mouth off. I enjoyed it and probably had more fun before I was 21 than you will have in your whole life.

yes, jose. sexism, animal abuse and nude HIGH SCHOOL, not college, girls (as a selling point, no less) are amazing. any jackass can put a pair of boobs in front of a camera, and any jackass can attend/get smashed at a wild party. i would hate to see your opinion of a bad movie. moron.

If you have never witnessed a house party or a pair of tits in your life, then project x is the movie for you.

"Old ppl need to stay the fuck out of the movie theater."

Seriously? You honestly think this was a good piece of cinema? Yup. Totally had a good plot, and it was definitely up there with the greatest movies of all time. Completely beats out The Godfather. You must be right.

The only reason you liked it was because you thought what the "characters" were doing was cool. You clearly have no idea what makes a movie good. So if you would, please just go live in a hole for the rest of your life so the rest of us don't have to deal with your fucking stupid self.

It's not a brilliant idea, and it wasn't successful. Everyone except you and your stupid friends hated it.

You have to wonder... In general, bad movies that are rated bad on rotten tomatoes don't get this many responses. Mostly because if the movie was bad, most people agree.

Even if the movie was good, the next thing people would do is NOT seek out a review on Rotten Tomatoes. Guessing by the commercial, I wouldn't be surprised of a great marketing company trying to culminate a buzz online.

Overall, the difference between this movie and other bad movies before it is that people are in a recession. Teens and college students will read reviews way before they go see a movie, unless they heard it from friends that it was great. No more fool me once Blair Witch Project types again: People's friends will end up telling people how good/bad this movie is, and there's no amount a marketing to a friend telling you how to spend $10 at a theater. That's beer money for college students; very important revenue.

I was told it was a bad movie with a decent ending, but worth waiting for the DVD. As for the *ahem* marketing team, one of the best I've seen in a long time. With this many bad reviews, probably should call it quits. The word will get out whether this movie is bad or not. I've heard the former way too many times.

Jeez, the anti-intellectualism of moviegoers like the commenters on here is an example of what's wrong. Yeah, it's a party movie, but have you been to a party like that? And why is it worth wasting $12 to watch people in their twenties from prep school ville and actress model world pretend to party? If you want to party, party, but the basic concept of this film is something super easy to conjure up and the reason why this got flack and Superbad did it...is because Superbad had characters, a basic plotline, it had a sense of reality despite the hijinks (whereas this is all about the fantasy) and had something meaningful to say, besides saying that causing massive amounts of property damage to other people, wrecking the house that your parents paid for with effort you cannot conjure, and showing your tits being the only way to make it in the social world

This movie is actually based on the epic party that happened in Australia that caused hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of damage, just an FYI.

All party movies are essentially lame, they try to recreate something that can't be recreated, a party happens, good or bad and isnt scripted. The only decent party movies I can thank of our Animal House and Old School, so I am skittish to waste the money.

I loved the damn movie because if something like this were to happen...my ass would be there. This was a fun and enjoying movie made for high schoolers, this was a crazy and fun filled movie for teens who live with mommy and daddy.

This movie is actually based on the epic party that happened in Australia that caused thousands of dollars worth of damage. Of course this movie blew it into the atmosphere, but still.

At 25 I don't think I'm the target audience, but I have to say this is one terrible movie.

HAHAHAHA highschool kids take instant offense to anyone saying this movie was lame. Sorry virgins and party noobs but real parties are nothing like this. I don't suggest living vicariously through a movie. If you want to know what a real party is like go watch KIDS but that might be to real for you.. So you should just stick to this real ass found footage movie.

I'm in highschool......this movie was stupid, i wish i would live that but i think even everyone would have an idea parties are not like this.

Ok dude we get it. "People living vicariously through this movie" and that they are all virgins and whatnot. The peter travers comment was more than enough. Oh and by the way although I love to party I have never been to a party like the movie kids. You must hang around with some demented raping little "virgins" as you say. On another note This movie sucked. Big time.

i didn't like this movie, but i am not going to say i didn't have funny moments and some entertaining scenes, because it was pretty funny. But comedy doesn't fill in gaps for a movie that was just this stupid.
