IQ Required: 21 & Under. Tedious, Unfunny
An Insult To Young People Everywhere.
At least once a year some film outfit puts together a drunken and drugged male sex hunt film starring fresh-faced, wise cracking, young people starving for a chance to gain an audience demographic so much that they'll stoop to pandering to the lowest common perception of today's youth and party scene. Frankly, while I admire all young talent trying to nail a career in film, this subject matter is a poor launch vehicle in my opinion. Films like this encourage young people, those who identify with these on-screen kids as peers, to over indulge in drugs, alcohol and all around socially reprehensible and morally irresponsible behaviors. Just because the film makers cloak their pandering in guise of comedy does not make it OK. Sometimes these films work and work well, as in last year's "Project X," whose parody was acceptable without pandering. Sadly, this film doesn't and as a consequence, is a glaring example of all things wrong in Hollywood. Skip it. You'll be VERY glad you did.
