21 And Over (2013)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Though it strives to mimic The Hangover, 21 and Over is too predictable, too unabashedly profane, and too inconsistently funny to carry the torch.

Movie Info

Straight-A college student Jeff Chang has always done what he was supposed to do. But when his two best friends Casey and Miller surprise him with a visit for his 21st birthday, Jeff Chang decides to do everything he wants to do for a change, even though his important medical school interview is early the next morning. What was supposed to be one beer becomes a night of humiliation, over indulgence and utter debauchery in this coming-of-drinking-age-comedy, from the writers of THE HANGOVER, about living youth to its fullest.

All Critics (100) | Top Critics (23)

In the end, 21 and Over is more exhausting - and exhausted - than funny or wild.

Top Critic

One of those brashly formulaic all-night-long youth-party flicks that's redeemed by the speed and personality of the actors.

These guys get into more trouble in one night than members of this film's target audience will encounter in their entire college lives.

All, or at least some, might be forgiven if there were just one likable character or memorable joke.

Among the ingredients "21" is missing: the infectiously random silliness of a Zach Galifianakis, the smug hunkiness of a Bradley Cooper, and any sort of Vegas-y gloss whatsoever.

21 & Over powers along with a winning Abercrombie bonhomie, IE naked guys and racism. Hilarious racism.

Audience Reviews for 21 And Over

One of the Funniest movies of 2013. A total blast of laughs from start to finish and does not want to stop. A hilarious and wickedly entertaining comedy that's just pure fun. It's fully loaded with non-stop antics and humor that will have you falling out of your seat laughing and in love with this special trio that take us on the whole ride with them. Miles Teller, Skylar Astin and Justin Chon are truly outrageous together, they have wonderful chemistry and have great character development. The film in all it's absurdity, it still has a undeniable heart that shines with its three young stars

"This was a great film for me tonight. I was in the mood for a feel good funny flick and that is what I got. Miles Teller is becoming a favorite for me. I find him to be very funny. The film was my kind of humor and I know not everyone appreciates it. But the story did have a subdued storyline which I wasn't expecting but felt it mixed with the film well. It's a film about having a good crazy time and touching base with best friends that you've lost touch with. I'd see it again."

Miller: When did this get all Bananas and Pajamas? "A Night You'll Never Remember" 21 & Over is a pretty terrible movie. It's not funny, the cast isn't entertaining, and the whole storyline is just stupid. It's fucking awful. These type of party movies are never going to go away and that's sad, but the saddest thing is, they just keep getting worse. Who cares about anything going on in a movie like 21 & Over, which pummels viewers over the head with the partying and then wraps the perverse and crude storyline up with the cliche growth of friends. Two friends come to a college campus to visit their friend. When they arrive at his house, his father is there and tells them he has a med school interview in the morning. But it's his 21st birthday, so they go out anyway. So it's a long night of drinking and looking for a house and running into the same people over and over.  Sometimes movies like this can manage to be a little fun, but 21 & Over doesn't. It's boring, unfunny, and really hard to get through. I actually almost turned it off a few times. In the end, it's just another lame comedy that attracts teens by advertising drinking, drugs, and sex. All three of which I have no problem with, but your movie still has to be something more.
