Todd Philips Completely Abandons The Concepts Of Story Or Comedy For The Sake Of Showcasing Nubile Flesh
It really isn't as interesting or effective as it might sound:
I'm not sure how someone can take the premise of Girls Gone Wild meets American Pie meets Cloverfield and make it look that grossly meh, but evidence of it being possible is plain for all to see. Even as it seems to distill the American Dream down to its core of seeing pretty young people engage in naughty acts that it publicly flogs, Project X is trying so hard as to simply being a turn-off. Plus, there's that whole moral ambiguity of depicting underage sex for almost purely salacious reasons. But considering how Todd Philips normally makes his money, it was probably just a matter of time.
