John Hanlon Reviews

A politically-incorrect and surprisingly uneven teen comedy that 20-somethings will likely enjoy.

Badass Digest

PROJECT X is the male gaze substantiated and concentrated into ninety sweaty minutes.

Project X misses the mark some of the time, but makes up for it by hosting the party of the decade.

ScreenRant

Unlike prior 'house party' movies, Project X says nothing meaningful about its subject matter and, instead, paints teens as unlikeable and reckless automatons.

There'll be many middle-aged, middle class haters declaring it morally bankrupt, but most will be able to file it under 'Guilty Pleasures' alongside Jackass, Bachelor Party and...er...forcing your pet to dance on its hind legs.

Scene-Stealers.com

It wants to be the ultimate party movie, but its mean-spirited nastiness, dedication to shock-value humor, and lack of any kind of base-level humanity proves that it's really the ultimate teensploitation film.

IGN DVD

An enjoyable, if very sloppy, jaunt into total anarchy, Project X isn't a film about morals, but what happens when all rules are thrown out the window.

It's kind of like reality TV. You get what you pay for.

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

Laughs? Just one or two chuckles. Acting? Pretty flat. X stands for Xcuse to shrug off empty-spectacle moviemaking as awesome partying for Hollywood's coveted teen demographic. X marks that Xtremely cynical profiteering spot atop the box office.

Except for bits concerning the dog, I didn't hear myself laughing.

None of these people resembles any teen anybody really knows. And thank god for that.

If you don't mind the adolescent male point-of view (read: constant objectifying of the opposite sex) there's plenty to enjoy here.

Salt Lake Tribune

Overloaded with foul language, gratuitous nudity, obnoxious characters, and the sub-standard cinematography of the "found footage" style.... But damn if it's not entertaining.

"Project X" is that beau who sets off warning bells when he's there to date your little girl. You won't want to let her out the door with this creep.

Movie Habit

A bad-taste comedy with energy and anarchy to spare -- maybe too much of both

Irish Times

An unhealthy strain of misogyny runs through the dialogue, and the film- makers' unquestioning acceptance of high-school one-upmanship fairly turns the stomach.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Although much of this obvious yet ingenious film is filler, it may be a game-changer in its genre, and its fiery, almost apocalyptic final act recalls the liberating anarchy of the great 'Rock 'n' Roll High School.'
