Movie Info

A revealing look at contemporary youth culture, writer-director Mario Van Peebles' We the Party shows teenagers as they are, not as adults would like them to be. Set amidst the latest trends in music, dance and fashion, We the Party is a colorful, cutting-edge comedy set in an ethnically diverse Los Angeles high school during America's first black president. The film focuses on five friends as they deal with romance, money, prom, college, sex, bullies, facebook, fitting in, standing out, and finding themselves. Evoking such classic teen comedies as The Breakfast Club and House Party but with an attitude and style all its own, We the Party captures the hopes, confusion, challenges and dreams of today's teenagers as they plunge headlong into an uncertain future. -- (C) Official Sitemore

Critic Reviews for We the Party

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (12)

Every time it dabbles in real-world teen issues like sex and drugs, it returns to a fanciful high school where kids quote Nietzsche and play acoustic guitar on lunch breaks.

Mario Van Peebles' self-produced project comes frustratingly close to his high-minded aims.

Heavy-handed teen drama mixes moralizing and partying to uneven effect.

Top Critic

A good-natured high school dramedy that borrows from many others...

Top Critic

With the raunch of "American Pie" and the heart of an after-school special, the comedy turns out to be a lot less than the sum of its parts.

Van Peebleses ... populate the movie, and all are serviceable enough as actors; it would be nice to see them in less earnest, more original material.

Audience Reviews for We the Party


Yeah it was super lame. You would think it's kinda gonna be like any of the other dance movies. Nope, just some lame raps and some Disney Channel stars trying desperately to seperate themselves from their former lives, probably a little too hard.
