Product Description

Project X (DVD)

Todd Phillips and Joel Silver, the filmmakers behind The Hangover and RocknRolla respectively, team up for the first time to produce an outrageous high concept comedy on an independent film budget. Featuring a cast of talented young actors, PROJECT X documents a high school party that spirals completely out of control. Captured from the cinema verite perspective of the digital cameras at the party, the film, scripted by actor Michael Bacall (Death Proof, Inglourious Basterds) and Matt Drake, and directed by music video helmer Nima Nourizadeh, follows a young man who simply wants a small get-together for his seventeenth birthday. What he gets -- thanks to his friends -- is the biggest, baddest and most destructive house party ever.

As a filmmaker, Todd Phillips (Due Date, The Hangover series) has shown an increasing interest in exploring the darker, unsettling side of slapstick comedy. (If he ever makes a Three Stooges movie, Curly ain't getting up off of the floor.) The Phillips-produced apocalyptic party movie Project X certainly doesn't skimp on the oh-no-they-didn't comedic gross-outs, but, weirdly enough, it works best at the moments when it seems about to change into a horror flick. If you've ever stressed about a stain that just won't come out, this may be the movie of your nightmares. Shot in a multicamera found-footage style, director Nima Nourizadeh's film follows a nerdy high-schooler (Thomas Mann) whose plans for his 17th-birthday house party go nuclear after his obnoxious friend (Oliver Cooper) assumes control of the guest list. The mayhem shown in the trailer? You haven't seen the half of it. Nourizadeh and his writers (including Scott Pilgrim's Michael Bacall) initially show an impressive command of escalation, as the out-of-control guests just keep piling in and the property damage steadily adds up. Unfortunately, the energy eventually outweighs the inventiveness, with the genuinely frenzied first half replaced by extended music video montages of women ditching their outfits. (Granted, the target audience may not have much of a problem with this development.) As the inspiration flags, the amateurish cast (most notably Cooper, who makes a strong bid for the most unlikable sidekick of the century) and lack of any inkling of redeeming social values do begin to add up, culminating in a finale that doesn't end so much as fizzle out. Still, even if it never quite delivers on its early promises of galactic bad taste, Project X contains enough moments of cranked-to-11 mayhem to satiate even the most ardent party animal, as well as provide a vicarious shuddery thrill for viewers who can vaguely remember their own all-nighters. You'll laugh, you'll squirm, you'll feel an urge to vacuum. --Andrew Wright

I bought the blu ray after seeing this film on a transatlantic flight and embarrassing myself silly by laughing out loud (which I just don't do on a plane). I could so identify with these losers as I was one, too in high school (I grew up well-adjusted and happy, thank you). I didn't like the Hangover yet I love this. Why? The directorial style: It just feels so much more natural and unforced; there's a sense of immediacy. And the three unknown leads are simply terrific and likable. And never have I felt I was at a party in any film as I feel it with this one (this really kicks in with the blu ray 5.1 surround sound). Yes, the story gets outrageous near the end but that was also the fun of it. The film has absolutely no moral or redemptive value (the music is so sexist but so very right for the film), yet there was something about it that made me feel like a teen again!

Project X is not a 5-star movie. I'm sorry for giving it the highest rating a product can receive on amazon. However, let me explain my case so you don't think there's something wrong with me. I've seen *countless* teen party movies over the years and NONE of them are entertaining at all. They are nothing more than filler and a waste of movie space.

Project X... FINALLY, a party movie that actually lives up to the hype! These teens are on a mission to create the absolute biggest, baddest party ever designed. They of course, are interested in sex, being cool and just being really rowdy, however what happens is that this party eventually spins *completely* out of control. As the movie rolls along, you will probably be sitting there totally amazed at just how many creative ways this party turns into pure insanity.

Seriously, you will never want to see another party film involving teenagers ever again because this one set out to accomplish every single nook and cranny you can possibly provide and make it MUCH better than all the rest. It makes all the rest no longer relevant, in fact. It really works. I don't even want to spoil any of the ways these teens get into trouble and what they do. They go from the uncoolest kids in school to the coolest in one night, that's for sure. Alright alright, I'll spoil one moment. While the one teen is talking to his father upstairs on the phone and assuring his father that everything's alright at home and that he's not causing any trouble whatsoever, a huge explosion occurs right outside the window!

It's hilarious because the entire time I was wondering how the kids would clean up by morning so their parents wouldn't find out what happened. None of that even matters and you'll find out why, haha.

For those who've written bad reviews stating this film had no redeeming value or in no way left you feeling educated or as if you had learned something...well, you're absolutely right; however, there is one problem with that notion...IT WASN'T MEANT TO! The trailers and advertisements for this film stated it was about a high school party that turned epic, then got out of control. This movie delivered on every level what it promised. I didn't walk away feeling I had learned how to cope with life better or osmotically learned a new level of responsibility. Instead, I remembered (and felt!) exactly what it was like oh-so-many years ago in high school...especially senior year.

This movie was an extended metaphor of my life senior year. I WAS the main character. I could not believe the similarities! I, too, was an invisible kid until that Friday night when a few of my friends made me throw a party after my parents had gone out of town for the weekend. I, too, wanted only 10 or 15 people. I didn't end up with 1500, but I think about 60-70 seems about right. In a respected neighborhood with nose-over-the-fences neighbors, I had people puking in the front and back yards. Christmas ornaments and cups of Screwdrivers being sucked up by a nozzled-vacuum cleaner. Potted plants being thrown inside my house. My dog was stoned and ate half the dish of peanut butter balls we had given up on. PJ cups strewn all over the place (as well as people - and clothes - for that matter). Strip Pool, strip poker, Beer Pong, Naked Jell-O Twister (I copy-writed that...don't steal it Mattel or whomever), and Insane Rules Mortal Kombat. I also hooked up with a girl I previously had been too shy and worthless to try for. I was even run over by a car (somehow was not injured)!

I'll also be totally honest and reveal that part of the reason we loved it so much is because a family member gave a party almost this epic for his nineteenth birthday. It was the biggest party bust in the history of his home town! No fires, nobody was hurt... but a "friend" invited, apparently, the entire state population... and they came! It wasn't funny at the time, but it is a story we'll tell forever. The worst part was a mystery stain on the rug! :) Ahhh, social media!

I left the theater when I first saw this being completely sober and yet actually feeling kinda tispy. The first person aspect makes it feel like you're there so much more, and it is a HILARIOUS movie. Most certainly recommend. The extended version doesn't really add much other than just elongated scenes of hot topless girls, which I'm just totally sure no one wants to see.
