A politically-incorrect and surprisingly uneven teen comedy that 20-somethings will likely enjoy.

Project X misses the mark some of the time, but makes up for it by hosting the party of the decade.

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.

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.

If you don't mind the adolescent male point-of view (read: constant objectifying of the opposite sex) there's plenty to enjoy here.

Overloaded with foul language, gratuitous nudity, obnoxious characters, and the sub-standard cinematography of the "found footage" style.... But damn if it's not entertaining.

Although much of this obvious yet ingenious film is filler, it may be a game-changer in its genre, and its fiery, almost apocalyptic final act recalls the liberating anarchy of the great 'Rock 'n' Roll High School.'

We wonder how they and the movie can possibly pull off a party so deranged we'll totally wish we were there, taking our clothes off.

Project X takes a standard parental nightmare and blows it up to such an outrageous, ruinous, cataclysmic degree that any parent who catches a glimpse of the film will never dare leave their house unattended again.

follows the expected tropes for this kind of story, and yet it is a film that somehow manages to be both raunchy and sweet, profane yet endearing

It's the party you've only dreamed about, the tagline says. And if you were 17 years old again, you might be inclined to agree.

It is to teen-party films what booting and rallying is to actual partying: Binge. Purge. Repeat, over and over, until a nail-in-the-skull hangover forces you to question whether what seemed fun at the time was really worth it.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

As the movie goes on and the party rages harder, the images become more and more primal, like half-glimpsed snippets of a nightmare experienced through a drunken fog.

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.

Seriously sick, in the good way.

One guilty pleasure, mindless escapism that offers some mixed - and some unexpected - messages at the end that make for alarming but intriguing post-viewing debate.

This movie is a celebration of youthful abandon. It's about that magical time in life when you realize that you are old enough to do anything you want, but before you're smart enough to understand that you shouldn't.

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.
