"Project X" follows three seemingly anonymous high school seniors-Thomas, Costa and J.B.-as they attempt to finally make a name for themselves. Their idea is innocent enough: let's throw a party that no one will forget, and have a camera there, to document history in the making… but nothing could prepare them for this party. Word spreads quickly as dreams are ruined, records are blemished and legends are born. "Project X" is a warning to parents and police everywhere.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: "Project X" bears a cravenly piggish attitude toward rewarding socially unacceptable behavior that feels unseemly rather than exciting, so-what rather than so-funny and obvious instead of new.
Rotten: "There's a midget in the oven!" is about as inspired as the dialogue and set pieces get in this queasy-making entertainment about a 17-year-old dude's birthday bacchanalia.
Rotten: There is no way you could make this movie stupider or more pointlessly noisy than it already is.
Rotten: A thin, painfully overlong comedy about an out-of-control party thrown by a trio of high-school losers.
This movie is hilarious, and a TON OF FUN. If you don't like this movie your basically the neighbors at this party.
Imagine "Superbad" on crack. Now crank that idea up to 1000, and you've got something along the lines of "Project X", which isn't a movie so much as it is a deliriously manic experience. The film basically revolves around three unpopular high school seniors who decide to throw the biggest house party ever to make themselves known by everyone. But what first starts out as a small get-together soon escalates into a full-blown riot that no one can control. I've gotta say, I actually enjoyed this movie a lot more than I thought I was going to. The scenarios were outrageously vulgar, the background music was amazingly catchy and the over-the-top climax was satisfyingly chaotic. However, like most found footage flicks, it did have its downsides. The main leads felt more like blatant retreads of characters from past R-rated comedies, and their personalities weren't as fleshed out as they could've been. Plus, most of the humor they delivered felt very forced and more mean-spirited than laugh-out-loud funny. But besides all those flaws, "Project X" still ended up being a solid, albeit predictable teen movie. It's definitely not as bad as how a lot of the critics on Rotten Tomatoes made it seem. Sure, the characters aren't that memorable and the plot isn't the most original, but in the end, this is a fun guilty pleasure of a film and nothing more. It's not trying to be anything more than what its premise suggests, and for that, I think it's worth renting at least once, especially if you're a fan of Todd Phillips' work.
This is honestly the best party movie I have ever seen , not just because of how funny it is , and how it keeps you entertained for the full hour and 30 minutes but because it is so interactive with most teenagers in the world these days . Many critics gave it a bad rating saying it was stupid and very immature but if you are young and aren't the type of person who is " old fashioned " trust me you are going to LOVE this film .
