Todd Phillips and Joel Silver, the filmmakers behind The Hangover and RocknRolla respectively, team up for the first time to produce an outrageous high concept comedy on an independent film budget. Featuring a cast of talented young actors, PROJECT X documents a high school party that spirals completely out of control. Captured from the cinema verite perspective of the digital cameras at the party, the film, scripted by actor Michael Bacall (Death Proof, Inglourious Basterds) and Matt Drake, and directed by music video helmer Nima Nourizadeh, follows a young man who simply wants a small get-together for his seventeenth birthday. What he gets -- thanks to his friends -- is the biggest, baddest and most destructive house party ever.

Common Sense Says
All-night-party movie has rampant teen sex, drinking, more.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Project X -- a very raunchy comedy about three high school seniors who throw a huge party that spins wildly out of control -- is packed with constant strong language ("f--k," "s--t," and much more), topless teens, sexual situations, graphic sexual innuendo, and excessive teen drinking and drug use (Ecstasy and pot). Punches are thrown, and though there's no actual fighting, the party has an increasing air of danger and violence (a flamethrower appears in the final act). The movie is funny in a shocking way, but parents will be appalled at its message: that a shy teen "needs" a huge party to break out of his shell and become a social success, regardless of the fact that the cost is thousands of dollars in damage.
