The bottom-line on this bottom-baring/bottom-branding farce is “Is it funny, on top of all the shocks?” And yes, it is. On a number of few...

Despite its collegiate setting, 21 and Over is pretty much for people with an IQ of 21 and under.

Chicago Sun-Times

This is one of those 93-minute movies that seem about 88 minutes too long. Or not worth making in the first place.

By the dictates of the boys-will-be-boys party genre, 21 and Over is so tame that it barely manages to even be offensive.

I had such hi hopes for this movie.I felt the creators of Hangover make a movie its got to be good. I was so wrong.This movie had potential to be good,but it felt like it was made in 24 hrs. They...

21 and older not for anyone 21 and older at the movies

By Adultsiglemotherwadutlkid
Wait for the DVD. This movie was Ok at best. Cute actors, but certainly can wait until it leaves theaters. If you are under 21 it has the young comedy that you probably haven't seen before so it will...

21 & Over

Most of the funny clips were in the trailer.......just not all that funny.... Mostly young kids at this showing (like 12 and up).....this in itself was a bit disturbing.... It was an okay movie, but...

21 and Over

Very funny, raunchy but hilarious at the same time. Loved Skylar Astin in that role, and it was the backstory of Jeff Chang that made the entire movie. This is how I picture college life. This movie...

Funny!

I was expecting Project X all over again but it actually had more of a story with it! Loved it! Hilarious! & I totally want to do the "Tower of Power"...

College comedy for the hipster age

It was alright.

If you've seen Harold and Kumar Go To White Castles then you've basically seen this movie. Movie wasn't as funny as Harold and Kumar, but it does give you a chuckle here and there. I wouldn't...
