If you're a young person looking for one of the wildest parties ever put together on screen, you'll probably enjoy this movie. The premise is pretty simple and the jokes can be juvenile but the movie is a blast. I enjoyed seeing the three characters put this party together and then see the chaos that ensues afterward. It starts off as just a party movie but as the movie gets crazier and crazier, it becomes more of a thriller. It is a pretty good found footage style movie that is entertaining for a certain demographic. I also appreciated some of the events near the end of the movie which grounded it more in reality than it needed to. I think it's a fun movie that isn't meant to be taken seriously in any way. If you know what you're getting into, the movie mostly delivers.
The story about the three high school friends is pretty lame and damn near intolerable. Luckily, the film itself is incredibly funny and the party at the center of it is one of the best (if not THE BEST) ever put on screen.
I hated this film. The weak characters and the annoying way of filming it in first person for the entire time. A small part of me found some enjoyment for it's realistic interpretation of how teenagers act. However the approach the director is trying to go for is not completely clear, it is unclear as to whether he is going for a crazy, no holds barred movie or a best friends become lovers romance. He should have chosen one direction to go in and stayed with it. The characters are either extremely unlikable or weak and timid, also the humour doesn't really cut it in the way the director would want. I can't even say this is harmless either because most people will genuinely be offended by all of its crude illmanorisms.
