College version of The Hangover has some laughs
3 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

From the brilliant writers of Old School (2003) and The Hangover (2009), comes a college-set comedy about the raucous life of college partying and the debauchery that ensues. This film follows college students Miller and Casey (played by Miles Teller and Skylar Astin), who hope to take their friend Jeff Chang (played by Justin Chon) out for a drink for his 21st birthday. Chang is initially reluctant as he has an interview of medical school the following day set by his hard-nose dad Mr. Chang. Ultimately, Jeff accepts and goes out for a wild night at the bar with his friends. However, what was supposed to a quick night of a few drinks unexpectedly turns into a night of endless debauchery when the Jeff Chang becomes passed out drunk and Miller and Casey cannot remember where he lives.

While this movie isn't anything original as it follows nearly the same plot as The Hangover, a group of friends who get wasted, lose one of their friends and can't remember what happened the previous night, it surprisingly still brought out the laughs and humor the writers of The Hangover have been made known for. I certainly can't say this rises near the level of The Hangover however. The humor and the dialogue are not as inspired or funny, some of the sex jokes here feel a bit forced and over-the-top, most of which come out of the mouth of Miles Teller's character. There is also a rather heavy use of gross-out humor, the scene in the bathroom at the sorority house, for an example. Then there are some moments that are quite a bit clever. Miles Teller, Skylar Astin, and Justin Chon show some great comedic chemistry with each other. Teller plays Miller who is quite vulgar and raucous, despite the chaos that ensues during their night, while Skylar Astin plays Casey who is more smart and more serious about the situations that takes place. Then Chon who's character spends the majority of the film passed out and heavily intoxicated, subconscious of everything that goes on.

21 & Over is a worthy movie for comedy fans. However, this film could have been better if it wasn't too similar to The Hangover series. Overall, it made me laugh and it had some good moments in it.
