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.

EPIC! Why Not Just Enjoy The Ride?!
18 March 2012 | by s2See all my reviews

I knew very little about this film before seeing it.

My 20 year old daughter had just seen it, crowned it 'AWESOME' and wanted to take me and her 15 year old sister. My daughters both know about my wild youth, as I know about theirs...

Well, I have to concur with my daughters - it was 'EPIC'. To the naysayers who are calling this trash, I say, too f'in' bad for you guys! You obviously have never been to a real party! Sure, it may go a little over the top - it's a movie! Get it?! People don't really fly either, Einstein! I am almost hittin 60 and I remember some kick ass parties. FUN.

Loosin' up! You're gonna die anyway.

Everyday I'm shufflin'...
