Three buddies wake up from a bachelor party in Las Vegas, with no memory of the previous night and the bachelor missing. They make their way around the city in order to find their friend before his wedding.
It's Thomas Kub's 17th birthday and all he wants to do is throw a small party with some friends to help raise his social status and maybe even get lucky. But when his best friend Costa starts calling radio stations and putting ads up on Craigslist, you can be sure that this party is going to get really out of hand really fast.
The studio disliked the title "Project X", feeling it was more appropriate for a science fiction film, and suggested re-titling the film "Happy Birthday, Thomas Kub", after a message seen on the school jumbotron. Producer Todd Phillips countered this by saying that firstly the studio's suggested title made the film sound like a good-natured buddy movie instead of the no-holds-barred comedy it actually was, and secondly that he and the writers saw Costa as more the focal character than Thomas. In the end, neither party could think of a better title, and so the finished film stuck with the "Project X" title. See more »
Before party starts the boys are in Thomas's bedroom and his Dad calls for Thomas. Thomas and Costas run out and there is no skateboard between mirror and piano. Then when Dax films himself in that mirror you see the piano and a skateboard appears. See more »

Depending on which age group you fall in will determine your enjoyment for Project X. Project X does so many fundamental things wrong such as sub par acting and glaring plot holes. However, for a film that on paper seems absolutely terrible I could not stop laughing and really enjoying this movie.
Project X isn't so much hilarious as it is entertaining. This movie will really appeal those who can relate to the plot somewhat. As an 18 year old that has thrown parties when my parents were away the film struck a chord with me. I could feel the main character Thomas's anxiety when he realized he had no control over his house and that's why I feel many teenagers and even those in their early 20's would really relate to this film.
Project X might not be worth 10 dollars to see it in the movie theater but if you go with a good group of friends the 10 dollar ticket will seem more than worth it. I really enjoyed the film for personal reasons but I can see a lot of movie goers detesting it. 6/10
