Rating: 1.5 out of 5 stars

21 & Over might be the brainchild of writer-directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore – who may as well change their names by deed poll to “the writers of The Hangover” – but the marketing conveniently forgets that they’re also writers of Four Christmases, Ghost of Girlfriends Past, The Hangover Part II and The Change-Up. Though its premise derives shamelessly from the former success, this stillborn 20-something comedy has more in common with the execrable majority of the team’s output.

Indeed, the premise to this film is virtually identical to The Hangover at a core level, but that’s really where the similarities begin and end. College student Jeff Chang (Justin Chon) has just turned 21 years old, and his two old high school buddies, the sensible, smart Casey (Skylar Astin) and the mental troublemaker Miller (Miles Teller), unexpectedly turn up on his doorstep for a night of heavy partying. »
