Superbad for bullies.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The party won't stop, even though you want it to.

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.

A bad-taste comedy with energy and anarchy to spare -- maybe too much of both
Donald Clarke
Irish Times
March 19, 2012
An unhealthy strain of misogyny runs through the dialogue, and the film- makers' unquestioning acceptance of high-school one-upmanship fairly turns the stomach.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

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.'
