Consensus: Unoriginal, unfunny, and all-around unattractive, Project X mines the depths of the teen movie and found-footage genres for 87 minutes of predictably mean-spirited debauchery.

This is a film desperately in need of a McLovin. Also, jokes would help. And comedic chemistry between the actors. And an ending that isn't a bolted-on cop-out. Save yourselves. It's too late for me.

"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.

A politically-incorrect and surprisingly uneven teen comedy that 20-somethings will likely enjoy.

The movie has all the heft of a tweet, but Philips has made it look pimp and, until the police end the party, Project X really is a riot.

"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.

PROJECT X is the male gaze substantiated and concentrated into ninety sweaty minutes.

Ultimately, Project X is an example of why gimmicks rarely work, especially once the new shine has worn off.

The parent and homeowner in me were appalled by the debauchery and incredible property damage. The teenage boy in me couldn't help but smirk anyway.

Project X misses the mark some of the time, but makes up for it by hosting the party of the decade.

This was mental although slightly interesting, it doesnt offer much entertainment wise!

We've all had the fantasy of throwing an awesome party, a revelry of youthful exuberance, and cutting loose. The house party is a teenaged rite of passage.… More
