Storyline

It's Thomas Kub's 17th birthday and all he wants to do is throw a small party with some friends to help raise his social status and maybe even get lucky. But when his best friend Costa starts calling radio stations and putting ads up on Craigslist, you can be sure that this party is going to get really out of hand really fast.

Loathsome, Pathetic, and Repulsive
3 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

Those are the three words I would use to describe this film. This movie has a basic "humongous high school party" plot but what was really wrong with it was the way it was put onto screen. The script has several subplots I could care less about and is filled with an unbelievable amount of unfunny, misogynist, mean spirited and crude jokes. In the course of the film, I absolutely loathed Oliver Cooper's character named Costa. He was an absolute disgusting sight on screen, him and his personality. No film character like that has made me disgusted like he has in a very long time. This film was also promoting the use of drugs and alcohol without showing it's lethal side effects. This so called "film" depressed me because of the fact that people actually enjoy it's mean spirited nonsense and went out of their way to pay $12.50 at their local cinemas to see immaturity and harassment put into an 88 minute film. If I could give this poor excuse of a film a 0 out of 10, I would.
