"You will meet producers who will say I've got a meeting with my writer, we're writing this script. You know that he's sitting in the room saying Well, why don't you have the broad take off her clothes in that scene? and that to them is writing."  -Jackie Collins

PROJECT X

SYNOPSIS:
Three high school seniors throw a birthday party to make a name for themselves. As the night progresses, things spiral out of control as word of the party spreads.

Review by Andrew L. Urban:
Officially classified MA15+, it should really be IM18- (suitable for immature audience under 18), a classification that is long overdue for introduction. As juvenile movies become more and more vulgar and anti-social, it is depressing how much laughter they can generate - as did the word-of-mouth preview of this movie which was filled with a young crowd.

What's especially depressing is how this mainstream and populist film confirms to its target market that it is status-confirming among their high school peers to behave so excessively badly.
Full review will be published March 4
