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

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.

Funny but not that funny

By JessieW912
While this movie has the writers from the famous Hangover, there were only a few funny parts the rest was only B rated. I would wait to just rent the movie not worth ticket price....

My stomach hurt from laughing

Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! So rare for a movie to be as good as the trailer. I can tell you right now, it's going down as one of my favourite films of the year. I was laughing so hard my stomach...

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...

stupid movie

I think this movie is not suitable to kids to watch. The acting is stupid and nothing else just school kids who like party and get drunk.....Not recommended.....

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...

One of the funniest movies I've ever seen

Movie is a combination of The Hangover and Animal House. If you have no sense of humor or are expecting a sophisticated comedy, look elsewhere, but if you enjoy unabashed humor and don't care about...
