Oh and I'm a 22 year old male born and raised in Altadena/Pasadena if that gives any weight to my opinion.

That's the biggest paradox about some of these R rated teen films. Who that is old enough to legally buy a ticket to this would actually be immature enough to think this sh1t looks cool?

Might be just me, but the trailer suggests three dozen well shot, raunchy YouTube clips just strung together.

"a celebration of colossal adolescent idiocy as something we should all aspire to" - sounds like the U.S. Congress...

I suspect this movie is going to do huge business and the target audience will love it. To me, that just makes it even more depressing. This seems like the kind of movie that's not so much written as it is engineered in a product development lab.

The major themes seem to be:
  1. breasts
  2. slutty behavior
  3. sociopathy
  4. wet breasts
The whole thing seems vaguely pedophilic, or at least creepy, given that the movie was "written" and directed and produced by men in their 30s and 40s. (Not to mention that those geezers haven't got the slightest idea what today's teenagers are actually like).

It is what it is. Multiple sequels are inevitable.

Well, the geezers got it right on, creepily right on, if you like. And teens aren't that much different now than they were 20 years ago.

See it in a crowded theatre. I rarely go to theatres anymore mostly b/c of the crowd but it actually works for this one.

I should add that I haven't actually seen the movie.

I quite liked Superbad, and I'm usually a fan of juvenile humor (Beavis & Butthead rule!), so there's a possibility that once I see Project X my opinion will change.

I'm not sure it's useful to even think of PROJECT X as a movie in the classical sense.

It's the party the kids in the audience could never go to, themselves. They won't be going for a story, they'll be going for a contact high.

There's a 16 year-old in me who would probably be pretty jazzed about seeing this with my high school friends. And yes, that 16 year-old in me is a goofy idiot, but he means well.
