This movie was kind of a mess from all standpoints. The plot was
uninteresting and incoherent. Like, what was the conflict/initial
incident even supposed to be? Oh no, their summer of partying has been
kind of mediocre...this is so riveting. None of the party scenes were
interesting either, "Woah I made a soufflé", "Wow I'm catching food in
my mouth" "Oh my, watching someone skinny dipping from a kilo meter
away, this sure is scandalous!". And wtf was that dump party at the
end? Running around with megaphones and doing mattress fights, no high
schoolers do this. Not much was even accomplished in the end. One guy
whored himself out and got a yeast infection and was fired from his
job. The girl had an unsuccessful relationship where she was cheated
on. The karate dude did a bunch of drugs and got fired from his job.
And the last guy got a handjob. They only went to like three parties.
Barely anything even happened and they're all celebrating at the end as
if they just threw Project X.
The characters were unlikable/dumb/underdeveloped. The main guy was insufferable, a hypocrite, and a moron. Talk about being controlling and jealous after he encouraged his female friend to get a boyfriend. Not to mention the irony in all of his criticisms of her relationship, has he ever heard of projection? And oh my god he actually spent over $2000 to fly some girl to his country when he has essentially no proof that she isn't a catfish and he has feelings for another girl...WAT! That literally makes no sense and the girl didn't really serve any purpose in the story, so I am not sure what the excuse is for that stupidity. Aren't these supposed to be the Harvard kids that are too smart for everyone? The karate guy was really annoying and I think was supposed to be the funny character, but that didn't seem to work out as he was just kinda cringey. The other two were more likable and less annoying, but of course they were pretty much the least developed, so there wasn't much to appreciate there. They're all really disruptive/obnoxious in public, and we see from the beginning that they're really recluse, yet they whine about not being invited places. Hmmm, I wonder why.
The humour...ummm was it even meant to be a comedy? I don't even think I cracked a smile at anything that happened. I get that humour is subjective but I seriously cannot think of one joke/funny moment in the whole movie. Oops.
Everyone in the movie acted stupidly unrealistic, I could not relate to any of them even though I am nearly the same age as most of them. That fight scene was one of the dumbest things I have every seen. The karate guy is somehow able to 1v6 a bunch of fully grown men who are twice his size. Like I get that he teaches tai chi or whatever but I am sorry this is not anime or Super Smash Bros, in real life he would get pummeled. And then the cops show up to see 6 unconscious men on the ground surrounded by a bunch of drunk teens and the extent to their investigation is just "They must've deserved it harharhar". Like the cops are just like "Want a ride home in a cop car?", uh okay never mind the guys that may or may not be dead on the ground or the hundred underage drinkers. What world do these people live in?
Was not terrible, but at the same time it kind of was. 4/10
