US Release Date:2nd March 2012 Australian Release Date:1st March 2012 Running Time:88 min US Classification:R Director:Nima Nourizadeh Starring:Thomas Mann, Oliver Cooper, Jonathan Daniel Brown, Dax Flame, Kirby Bliss Blanton, Miles Teller Taglines: * You Are Invited
* Witness It
* The Party You've Only Dreamed About.
Three unpopular high schoolers attempt to boost their popularity status with the mother of all parties in this comedy, filmed handycam-style, from producer Todd Phillips (The Hangover). But the raunchy party spirals wildly out of control when word spreads and massive crowds descend. Dreams are shattered, records are ruined and legends are born. The movie's stars are newcomers who scored their roles through a US-wide open casting call.
In 1987 Matthew Broderick & Helen Hunt starred in a chimp film called “Project X”. In 2012 a new film called “Project X” hit the cinemas - it is not a chimp film - but there is a lot of money business to be found. Any resemblance of the new film to that heartwarming 1980s monkey film ends with the title. Please be warned the 2012 “Project X” is not a remake! If a comparison had to be made, then the behavior of the teenagers in the new film would have to be described as somewhat out-of-control primates…..
With the release of “Project X” - the YouTube generation hits the big screen! Unfortunately, it is an upload from the bottom-of-the-barrel that has somehow slipped into the multiplexes. Warner Bros, what were you thinking? Shot in home video fashion this destructive house party flick is lewd, crude & totally insane! Some teens may get a kick out of watching it but other viewers you have been warned - “Project X” offers nothing more than a VIP ticket to get-up-close-&-personal with non-stop degrading party mayhem. With the bulk of the film shot hand-held, it’s a rather exhausting watch - add to this concoction, drugs, alcohol & a midget in a microwave & you have a recipe for cinematic chaos.
“Project X” has ultimately nothing important to say, it features a cast of relative unknowns & reality-TV-type party revelers. However, one face may be familiar, Miles Teller of “Footloose” fame drops in & out of the chaos – playing not just another party guest… but himself. In 2012 we’ve had the found film footage of “Chronicle” & now “Project X” is number 2 out of the experimental starting gates. The short & skinny is, if you like out-of-control parties with no redeeming value – grab a ticket, if you like a little bit more depth to your teen movie - you may want to spend the afternoon with a John Hughes classic. Whatever the case, could “Project X” be the most irresponsible movie in the prestigious Warner Bros catalogue of films? You be the judge…..”Project X” is not a good advertisement for teenagers. “Project X” is teenage stupidity exposed.
Another teen flick in the style of "Project X" is "Chronicle" (2012).
