Sound Off: Nima Nourizadeh's Party Movie 'Project X' - Thoughts?

March 2, 2012

Project X Sound Off

Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Did you get the invite? Hitting theaters hard this early March weekend is Project X, directed by Nima Nourizadeh, produced by Todd Phillips (Old School, The Hangover, Due Date), written by Michael Bacall (Scott Pilgrim) & Matt Drake, about three high school kids who throw the craziest party of their lives. It's Superbad meets The Hangover, or so they say. How crazy is the party? Is it better than you expected, or worse? Does it get even wilder than you thought it would or not? Once you've seen it, leave a comment with your thoughts on Todd Phillips & Nima Nourizadeh's Project X.

Note: I haven't actually had a chance to see Project X yet, but I'm planning to catch it this weekend. In the meantime, I've heard it's an insanely wild R-rated party movie that goes to some very crazy places, and I'd love to start a discussion on it anyway - good or bad! Fuel your own fire for now - what did you think?

What did you think of Project X? One of the best out-of-hand party movies yet, or teen trash? We will remove any comments that indicate you have not seen the movie, as this area is meant to discuss the film only once you have seen it and can talk about your thoughts. Please keep the comments civilized!

    i liked it, was a fun film. crazy, unrealistic, cliche-filled (especially in its first half)...but fun and entertaining. 
  • Tyban
    Loved it. Fun and very crazy. Sort of like a combo of Superbad, The Hangover, and Animal House.
  • K1ng
    Best party movie since Superbad. The soundtrack, the actors, the one-liners! Woke up still talking about this movie amongst friends. MUST SEE

        Hahah! I saw that when that hit the web a few years ago. Didn't put it together until now. Crazy. Great movie too! Hilarious, entertaining, def. worth seeing in theaters!
  • Mochonko
    EpiC party movie.. Pretty dam funny too! XD
  • Cracking entertainment, good fun, loved it.
  • The Slack King
    Why would anyone want to watch a hour and a half of self-absorbed facebook addicted douches destroy a neighborhood?
    • Xerxexx
       Because humor is subjective, no one two people will enjoy the same type of humor.  There almost can't be a critical analysis of the comedic humor because its so polarizing. You may not want to watch a movie about facebook addicted d'bags but another person would love to watch. Intelligent comedies/raunchy comedies/slap-stick/screw-ball/Sick/Dark comedies are nearly impossible to criticize due to humor being subjective.
      • The Slack King
        Yes, it's true....there's no accounting for taste. You either have it or you don't.
        • Now, that's pretty narrow minded isn't it? lol.
        • Xerxexx
          Well taste differs from person to person.
        • Payne by name
          And those that claim to have it, invariable don't.
      • Hattori Hanzo
        I see where you are coming from Xerxexx because “NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition! Our chief weapon is surprise...surprise and fear...fear and surprise.... Our two weapons are fear and surprise...and ruthless efficiency.... Our *three* weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency...and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope.... Our *four* *Amongst* our weapons.... Amongst our weaponry...are such elements as fear, surprise.... I'll come in again.”

       I wouldn't and won't. This generation of kids blows...
      • Ivan
        This generation is the future and I love it! Staying young and wild and free forever!!
  • Cortesrichie16
    Best Party Movie Period!!!! Gets You in the Mood To Throw one yourself!!$$:)
  • Moon
    I'm sorry but this movie is horrifying. It promotes destruction, chaos and not following the rules of society. Worse yet the movie ends with the kids parents in debt and him being criminally charged but the party is seen as a good thing because he became popular. This movie goes beyond bad taste.
    • Chip_Tha_Ripper
      Haters gunna hate lol.
    • Lebowski
      "Promotes destruction and chaos" Hahaha, who the crap are you? Tipper  Gore in like 1992? If you actually believe this film will incite teen anarchism then you should seek immediate psychiatric help. 
      • Guinness
        Moon didn't say "incite". He said "promote". There's a difference. Maybe you should seek some immediate text-comprehension help.
    • You should change your name from "Moon" to "Mom". Bad taste? Definitely. Socially disruptive? C'mon.
  • movie geek
  • Max Renn
    Terrible movie (and I don't mean Jonathan Daniel Brown's "Nerd Hunting"). I weep for the future if this is the entertainment for the current generation.
  • christox
    Looks fun!
  • This was what I expected, and way more! The most epic of party movies! The cast was super funny and believable, the dialogue was ruthless and raunchy and it was never weighed down by the romantic "B" story
  • Emdub52
    The home owner in me was terrified, but the kid in me couldn't stop smiling. The whole time I was watching it I couldn't have been more happy for those 3 kids and I kept saying to myself, good for them. I had a great time watching it and I really want to go see it again.

  • David Johnson
    This film is abysmal. 
  • Ivan
    In my opinion it tops "The Hangover" (both) and "Superbad". Unlike everybody else I feel that it stays close to reality and I dnt see why this couldn't happen under the right circumstances. INSANELY FUNNY!!! MUST SEE & HAVE!
  • Forrestt
    I thought this is one of the most epic movies i have ever seen... And to all you people tht are criticizing this movie your crazy this movie was fucking awesome! by the way im 17 :)
