When Straight-A college student Jeff Chang's two best friends take him out for his 21st birthday on the night before an important medical school interview, what was supposed to be a quick beer becomes a night of humiliation, over indulgence and utter debauchery.Written by
Justin Chon was actually 32 years old even though his character was 21 when this was filmed. See more »
After Jeff Chang gets completely drunk and wasted, Miller and Casey spend the majority of the night trying to get him home because they don't know his address. Not a problem, except they both took a taxi cab to get to his house at the beginning of the film, which means they either have his address written down/stored somewhere or they both knew it. Even if they didn't know the location of his house from the bar area, they should have at least had the physical address to give to someone. See more »
So, I take it you're not in a frat?
No, because I'm not angry and secretly gay.

This film is about the first 24 hours of a straight A student's 21st birthday.
"21 & Over" is a toned down college version of "The Hangover". The plot is very similar to "The Hangover", and it is wearing thin. Though the parties are ridiculous and the alcohol is plentiful, we all know what will happen and hence the plot does not have the same entertaining effect as the first time around. Fortunately, the subplot of testing the strained friendship and standing up for oneself is a bit refreshing, so "21 & Over" sets itself as slightly different from its parent clone. The Asian female student who swears a lot is the most memorable character, and she deserves a special mention. Her one minute of screen time is so unexpectedly crazy! "21 & Over" is an average comedy, if judged on its own merit. But please, enough with the "The Hangover" clones.
