    Most teen flicks just fake being fueled by anarchy. But the gut-bustingly funny Project X is the real deal. It's raunchy, reckless and ready to party. What's not to like? show more

    Amy Biancolli San Francisco Chronicle

    With most movies, the question for viewers is: Who should see it? With Project X, the most pressing issue is: Who shouldn't see it? show more

    A movie about a teen party gone horribly wrong, would be every parent's worst nightmare if it weren't so inane. show more

    Though the central blowout is as epic as advertised, so is the movie's self-congratulatory obnoxiousness. show more

    Todd McCarthy The Hollywood Reporter

    Despite a couple of unconvincingly upbeat tacked-on moments at the end, Project X basically reads as nihilistic, as not believing in or standing for anything. Not even fun. show more

    Project X strives to appall, and it would be similarly self-deluded to pretend this jumble of ecstasy and crotch shots is anything other than repulsive. show more

    A party disaster movie targeted at kids who find the "Hangover" franchise too sophisticated. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    Project X is an astounding, superlative movie about adolescence - a brutal, unapologetic comedy about the fantasy every high school kid carries around in his head about being popular and cool and beloved. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    Project X's first-person verisimilitude is the movie's primary strength and most damning weakness. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    The party itself is something to see. A Pasadena blowout turns into a horny, druggy, apocalyptic scene culminating in riot police, news choppers, and a gentleman with a flamethrower. show more

    I actually liked the movie.. You know what the movies about before you watch it, and Project X gives you just that to the tenth degree. It had a light plot, and camera work was done by one of the party attendants, but I liked that because it made you feel like you were a part of the party; it didn\'t make you think about what the director was putting in front of you or sway your opinions of certain characters. You get what you came to see, and they did a good job executing it without taking away from it with a deep story line or smaller elements. **** was cray, and that\'s what I paid to see.

    Don\'t waste your time or money. That is 90 minutes of my life I will never get back - Feh! If I could give this ridiculous movie negative stars I would. What makes the studios think that putting this kind of crap on screen makes us a civilized society?

    I don\'t usually leave reviews for movies I haven\'t seen but I got ahold of the spoiler and all I can say is that on a base level this movie\'s a piece of garbage. Take away the \"comedy\" and all the plot has left is a list of how to debase every moral standard imaginable. Parents beware.

    I\'m usually not a huge fan of party movies, but Project X was a huge surprise for me. Project X had it all. Comedy that kept me laughing through the whole movie, Suspense that kept me guessing what could be crazier than what i just saw, and of course it was topped by something even crazier. If you\'re looking for a crazy ass, epic movie, Project X is it.
