21 & Over is lifeless, forgettable, and bland. It's the type of film you can walk in on halfway through and not only figure out what is happening in 30 seconds, but become bored 30 seconds later. It's as close to fast food as cinema gets.
I'm not the right audience for this film, but then again neither are some 16,000 readers at the Internet Movie Database who gave it a cumulative rating of 5.7 out of 10. I think a few 21 & Unders might have pushed it up a few points.
There's a reason 21 & Over feels like a low-rent, teen version of The Hangover. It was written and directed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the two scribes who created the comedy blockbuster. Only this time, they're out of new ideas.
( ... ) this flatlines so often it's impossible to tell where the actual low point is. Is it the slow motion vomiting shot from multiple angles? Or a grown man standing on a bar ready to relieve himself over everyone else?
