Three teens' birthday party spins wildly out of control.
" There is no way you could make this movie stupider or more pointlessly noisy than it already is. "
" These kids apparently attend Actress-Model High School, where the guys run the gamut from hot to dorky, but practically every female is skinny, stacked and ready to flash their racks to apparently dozens of video cameras. "
" Have teenagers always been this idiotic or does Project X move the goalposts? "
" This is a film desperately in need of a McLovin. Also, jokes would help. And comedic chemistry between the actors. And an ending that isn't a bolted-on cop-out. Save yourselves. It's too late for me. "
" "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. "
" [It] feeds I Love the '80s cliches through a kind of bobbing-camera Mixmaster. It's Can't Hardly Wait for the age of Jersey Shore. "
" "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 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. "
" Pasadena, in case you were wondering, is where the meaning of the word "epic" goes to die. "
" A thin, painfully overlong comedy about an out-of-control party thrown by a trio of high-school losers. "
" The movie is ugly in both its look and outlook. It aims for the bottom and hits the bulls-eye. "
" It's a perfectly lame movie that speaks intriguingly to the way we live now. "
" Ultimately, Project X is an example of why gimmicks rarely work, especially once the new shine has worn off. "
" Halfway through this movie I thought I was giving it an F, but then... "
" The "Animal House" of the iPhone generation? Could be. Pretty enjoyable for parents too. "
" As party porn goes, "Project X" has its moments. In terms of drama, character or intelligence, it's pure bong water. "
" With its cast of unfamiliar faces and catalog of underage wish-fulfillment fantasies, this game-changing instant classic will doubtless inspire imitators. "
" An unapologetic and breathlessly amoral cinematic debauch about a California high school kid whose parents leave town and who throws an out-of-control, alcohol-soaked, drug-fueled, sex-crazed, jiggling-naked-breast-filled suburban bacchanal. "
" [It] would be every parent's worst nightmare if it weren't so inane. "
" 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. "
