This lot are not an intolerable bunch of boys, but it's hard to get fussed about how this 24-hour bender works out for them.

Perhaps I'm getting old but at times I found myself thinking the writing was often just mean, lazy or unnecessary.

In all its binge-drinking, profanity-laced, vomit-soaked glory, the film's stupefying lack of self-awareness ends up being its biggest enemy.

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.

It's all very crude and crass, yet the trio remain essentially likeable, notwithstanding their riotous behaviour.

Some more revisions of the screenplay and this could have been a minor meathead classic instead of disposable junk.

An enjoyable third act can't save this uneven comedy, which strives to be more serious than it should.

Unlike Project X, which was a nihilistic, anarchistic, hedonistic binge on partying, 21 & Over had an actual story to it.

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.

It's not exactly groundbreaking but it still takes a lot of brains to craft something as brazenly stupid as this.

Despite the veneer of vomit-stained raucousness, it's fairly mild stuff ...

A filming-by-numbers adolescent comedy ...

One of many recent films that could serve as a recruiting advertisement for Al Qaeda.

( ... ) 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?

The final implication that this is how you grow up and find yourself makes one fear for the future of US youth. And, indeed, America itself.

There's probably a great comedy to be made about that daunting, awkward transition from youth to adulthood - 21 & Over just isn't it.

The writers of The Hangover stick with the same formula for this university-aged romp about three young guys who get far too drunk for their own good.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Boozed-up students might enjoy it, but it's just going to make anyone over the age of 21 feel really old.
