PROJECT X

SYNOPSIS:
Three high school seniors throw a birthday party to make a name for themselves. As the night progresses, things spiral out of control as word of the party spreads.

Review by Andrew L. Urban:
Officially classified MA15+, it should really be IM18- (suitable for immature audience under 18), a classification that is long overdue for introduction. As juvenile movies become more and more vulgar and anti-social, it is depressing how much laughter they can generate - as did the word-of-mouth preview of this movie which was filled with a young crowd.

What's especially depressing is how this mainstream and populist film confirms to its target market that it is status-confirming among their high school peers to behave so excessively badly.
Full review will be published March 4
