The movie has all the heft of a tweet, but Philips has made it look pimp and, until the police end the party, Project X really is a riot.

Ultimately, Project X is an example of why gimmicks rarely work, especially once the new shine has worn off.
March 2, 2012
"Project X" bears a cravenly piggish attitude toward rewarding socially unacceptable behavior that feels unseemly rather than exciting, so-what rather than so-funny and obvious instead of new.

"There's a midget in the oven!" is about as inspired as the dialogue and set pieces get in this queasy-making entertainment about a 17-year-old dude's birthday bacchanalia.

The parent and homeowner in me were appalled by the debauchery and incredible property damage. The teenage boy in me couldn't help but smirk anyway.

With its cast of unfamiliar faces and catalog of underage wish-fulfillment fantasies, this game-changing instant classic will doubtless inspire imitators.

While the film does have moments that I appreciated, I found most of it to be rather silly and way too over the top.

Hateful characters, a ridiculous story and mediocre direction - that's what Project X has to offer you.

A found footage-style examination of high school culture that successfully manages to sink to the lowest depths of entertainment.

This is the most nausea-inducing, offensive, sad, pedestrian, sophomoric waste of time I have ever witnessed. On occasion, I write that if I could have walked out of a movie, I would have. This time I did.

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.
September 30, 2012
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.
September 4, 2012
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.

The movie is every bit as bad as the trailer made it out to be. (Blu-ray edition)
