I haven’t expressed my fondness for Project X yet, but I will express it now. Yes, it is a movie about partying, drinking, and nerdy kids attempting to have a “cool kid” kind of time. But… it is so socially-relevant to our generation, so ridiculously entertaining, and so expertly-done with Steady Cam that it is escalated from cliché party movie to something a little more. I am not saying your life will be changed, but I bet if you watch this movie with a group of your party animal friends you will feel a weird euphoria, or present nostalgia. The movie wants to have a fun time and knows that a generation obsessed with exams, tough career choices, and the pressure of the future want to feel the same thing.
The director of The Hangover Todd Philips produced Project X and the writers of The Hangover Jon Lucas and Scott Moore are presenting 21 and Over, a comedy set for release March 1, 2013. This film centers on a promising student who, the night before his big medical school exam, celebrates his 21st birthday with his friends. I’m sure we can imagine that extremities will occur.
I have hopes that this movie will be more than just raunchy humor and hijinks. There was a beating heart in Project X and I am hoping for the same in 21 and Over.
