Critic Reviews

  • Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
    This is a film desperately in need of a McLovin. Also, jokes would help. And comedic chemistry between the actors. And an ending that isn't a bolted-on cop-out. Save yourselves. It's too late for me.
  • Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
    The movie has all the heft of a tweet, but Philips has made it look pimp and, until the police end the party, Project X really is a riot.
  • James Berardinelli, ReelViews
    Ultimately, Project X is an example of why gimmicks rarely work, especially once the new shine has worn off.
  • Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
    "Project X" bears a cravenly piggish attitude toward rewarding socially unacceptable behavior that feels unseemly rather than exciting, so-what rather than so-funny and obvious instead of new.
  • Melissa Anderson, Village Voice
    "There's a midget in the oven!" is about as inspired as the dialogue and set pieces get in this queasy-making entertainment about a 17-year-old dude's birthday bacchanalia.
  • Peter Howell, Toronto Star
    The parent and homeowner in me were appalled by the debauchery and incredible property damage. The teenage boy in me couldn't help but smirk anyway.
  • Peter Debruge, Variety
    With its cast of unfamiliar faces and catalog of underage wish-fulfillment fantasies, this game-changing instant classic will doubtless inspire imitators.
  • Alonso Duralde, TheWrap
    These kids apparently attend Actress-Model High School, where the guys run the gamut from hot to dorky, but practically every female is skinny, stacked and ready to flash their racks to apparently dozens of video cameras.
  • Tom Long, Detroit News
    As party porn goes, "Project X" has its moments. In terms of drama, character or intelligence, it's pure bong water.
  • Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
    It's a perfectly lame movie that speaks intriguingly to the way we live now.
