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.

Trivia

When the camera catches the young lady urinating, she gestures for it to shoo away. According to a popular Internet rumor, the lady was urinating in a corner due to a lack of bathrooms on the set, and was irritated by this violation of her privacy. Only by paying her an extra amount of money were the editors allowed to use the footage in the film. However, her expression is ambiguous, and she almost appears to be smiling or laughing while gesturing the camera away from her body function. See more »

Goofs

Near the beginning of the movie, while in the van, the driver hits the brakes to have the kid in the passenger hit his head. The thing is that he would have been forced forward into the dashboard not backwards into the head of the seat. See more »

Great soundtrack, non-stop fun and chaos!
3 July 2012 | by lucyrichards27See all my reviews

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 :)
