Whilst attending a party, three high school friends gain superpowers after making an incredible discovery underground. Soon, though, they find their lives spinning out of control and their bond tested as they embrace their darker sides.
Michael B. Jordan
A high school slacker who's rejected by every school he applies to opts to create his own institution of higher learning, the South Harmon Institute of Technology, on a rundown piece of property near his hometown.
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.
Director Nima Nourizadeh's background in commercials landed him the job as helmer. He initially moved from London to Los Angeles for what he thought would be a two-week stint on refining the screenplay. He ended up staying for two years. See more »
Near the beginning of the movie, while in the van, the driver hits the brakes to have the kid in the passenger seat hit his head. The thing is that he would have been forced forward into the dashboard not backwards into the headrest of the seat. See more »

and this is Project X, yo.

This movie tells the story of 3 teen boys, all with completely different personalities, who decide to throw a fairly large birthday bash, which in the end goes totally out of hand. The movie is based on the real life story about a boy named Corey Delaney who threw a huge party that involved the whole street. The movie has worried several people due to the fact that teenagers are represented in a very negative way. Reports of imitations of the Project X party have also been in the news.
I think everyone is overreacting personally but that's just me. This movie is so much fun, and as much as it makes me want to go to a party, I would never act so ridiculously as portrayed in Project X. The movie can be compared to American Pie, Super bad etc with it's really American humour and classic story line. It features filthy comedy, naked teens, scenes of drug use and alcohol consumption and is a non-stop thrill ride. It will leave you gritting your teeth and covering your eyes due to it's absurd stunts and the cringe-worthy events in it.
It has a great soundtrack that makes you wanna get up and dance too! However, the reason why I haven't rated it a ten is because towards the end, it becomes a bit TOO dramatic and silly. But overall, it's fun, sexy, funny, pulse racing & definitely memorable. Just like in Super bad, you emphasize with each character and each one is completely different to the other. If you like Super bad/American Pie, you'll love this :)
