Project X review

High School Hangover

Tired of being zeroes, three high-school guys decide to raise their game by throwing an epic house party. Word spreads, too many people turn up and the night inevitably blazes out of control.

Lensed handheld and cast with unknowns (for added docu-realism), Project X immerses/drowns you in its mushrooming carnage. Pity, then, that this Todd Phillips production leaves a worst taste than a bowl of dodgy Doritos.

Pandering shamelessly to 15-year-old boys, it’s sexist, obnoxious and, unlike the superior Superbad , mean-spirited – especially if you’re a dog or a dwarf.
