Project X is shit 

Super-lame teen boy fantasy perpetuates stereotypes

px.jpg
Project X is barely a movie. The plot: three high school seniors---the gullible birthday boy, Thomas (Thomas Mann), the fat guy, J.B. (Jonathan Daniel Brown), and the obnoxious dude, Costa (Oliver Cooper)---stock up on booze and pot and set out to "get some pussy” by throwing “the party you’ve only dreamed about” when Thomas’s parents leave town. It takes all the horrible stereotypes of misogynist guys and hypersexualized girls and puts them on steroids. By my count, three women speak more than a couple words during the entire movie: Thomas’s mom, when she leaves the house, the best gal pal and the hot hookup (who, incidentally, has maybe two sentences). But, by this movie’s logic, girls don’t need to say anything, really, when they’re invited to a party only to show their “high school titties.” Director Nima Nourizadeh should be held accountable for any irresponsible teen behaviour resulting from this horrendous shit-show.
