Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Jeff Chang: That's my laptop.
Julian: Get a desktop, bitch!

Doesn't pretend to be anything other than a dumb comedy
14 May 2013 | by rebecca-rySee all my reviews

'21 & over' is the latest buddy comedy inspired by 'The Hangover.' It has a similar story to 'The Hangover' except the drinking rampage is the story rather than the morning after.

This film was surprisingly good! I think the last film I saw was 'Movie 43' and that made me lose faith in laughter and happiness… Anyway, '21 & over' certainly isn't the funniest comedy ever but there are a decent amount of laughs and cringe moments. Of course, towards the end the story does go totally over the top. This is a modern classic aspect of American comedies these days so I guess it is just something we will have to get used to. Thankfully, it doesn't really send the film into a downward spiral as it is still redeemable.

The characters in this film are all pretty funny in their own way and the characters you are supposed to like are genuinely likable. The story deals with a lot of important issues in a bizarrely light-hearted manner which is quite odd. A lot of the supporting characters are really funny so you're glad to see them each time they pop up throughout the film. I anticipated a lot of rubbish, cheap racist Asian jokes to be dotted all over the script but only a few did and they were from a character that seemed like the kind of person who would say those kinds of jokes. This was quite relieving, the film did its best to make jokes and references that people of a similar age would recognise and find funny.

Overall, this film is nonsense but the people who created it know this and don't try to pretend it's anything else. This is a good film to watch with your friends and I imagine, once it is released on DVD, will be a popular film for drinking games. Beer Pong anyone?
