I went to see this film with my buddies and we all thought that it was pretty good and quite funny. The film is definitely created for a specific audience and I think that audience will be satisfied with this film. I thought the story was told pretty well and I found the film to be crudely funny, I also thought that the cast was pretty terrific. I was kind of disappointed with the conclusion of the film, I thought it was kind of weak and unsatisfying but the rest of the film was pretty cool. There are a lot of similarities with the film Hangover but I expected that because the makers of this film also made Hangover, I definitely did not mind it. Overall, if you have a certain sense of humor and you liked Hangover, I think you will also enjoy watching this film.
I did not like this film and I do not recommend seeing it in the theaters. I thought this film was pretty ridiculous and I regret spending my time and money on it. This film was supposed to be shocking and wild and it just was not, it was very tamed, nothing unique or interesting happened in the film and I was just annoyed for the whole running time. This film basically copied Hangover and brought nothing new to it, I was pretty bored and unimpressed with this film. Overall, If you are craving for a funny movie just re-watched Hangover and save your money and time.
Okay, let me just say right off the bat that I know everyone and their mother will think I am a killjoy and a pill for saying this, but this movie has a serious hangover from "The Hangover". I know it's from the same writing team, but couldn't they have at least tried to do something a little more original? It's like they took the old men from The Hangover, turned them into teenage boys, and dumped them into college. Hardy har har. I admit that there were some genuine laughs, especially when it came to the scenes with Jeff, Casey, and Miller, but you knew exactly where this movie was going the second it started and that kind of deflated the experience for me. I wish that there were also more girls in the movie who were more than just eye candy. Yea, we get it: boys like to drink...but guess what? So do females, and me and my besties are a living testament to this fact, lol.
Oh em effing gee, you guys!!! This one is totally for the younger crowd. My bros and I were watching this at the midnight screening and we still cannot stop laughing - I mean CANNOT STOP! The scenes with the two bffs of the main character Jeff are just hysterical - they way they goad him into doing things that he would never do under normal circ**stances. They way that they push him beyond his limits to see if he can really rebel when he has never done anything even remotely as bad. And the way he finally lets loose and really lives for once in his life. All of these parts of the story make it really memorable and I think that this will be a superhit movie. Yeah, it kind of reminds you of "The Hangover" in certain parts, but it also reminds you of all the crazy fun times you've had with all your friends when you were just trying to be cool. I love this movie and will be watching it again soon.
It’s a little hard to believe that Hollywood has never really ventured so explicitly into the realm of underage drinking with more abandon than it has in the new fratboy comedy "21 and Over". Is there a more surefire way to attract gazillions of teenage boys and their expendable allowances into cinemas than to show their screen idols upchucking between jaeger bombs? Methinks not.
Well, better late than never, and this movie is admittedly – almost shockingly – watchable. Yes, before you jump the gun I will admit that there are one too many drinking games. Actually four or five too many. But this isn’t a movie about drinking or even the allure of adult hedonism. It’s about being a grown up and how much the condition known as adulthood can S-U-C-K.
Prepping for adulthood is Jeff Chang, a young and studious man who has always been the straight A student and good boy his father has demanded that he be. The night the story begins Jeff is prepping for an interview with a medical school where he hopes he will be accepted and become a doctor like his father.
His best friends Casey and Miller (there’s always a “Casey” in these stories) want him to have one last (or first) hurrah and so they plan to buy him a beer. Emphasis: "a" beer.
Of course, this first beer turns into a keg, which soon turns into a few six packs, which in turn becomes a night of such drinking that you’d think Jeff was having one last go before checking into rehab in the morning. Will he make the interview? And even if he does, will he be sober? Or even coherent?
The movie works well enough because its leads are perfectly cast and all get a chance to shine by the surprisingly smart script. It isn’t a teen classic like "Breakfast Club" or even "Harry Potter", but it is still quite enjoyable and everyone over 18 will be able to relate.
