Straight-A college student Jeff Chang has always done what he was supposed to do. But when his two best friends Casey and Miller surprise him with a visit for his 21st birthday, Jeff Chang decides to do everything he wants to do for a change, even though his important medical school interview is early the next morning. What was supposed to be one beer becomes a night of humiliation, over indulgence and utter debauchery in this coming-of-drinking-age-comedy, from the writers of THE HANGOVER, about living youth to its fullest.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"In the end, 21 and Over is more exhausting - and exhausted - than funny or wild."
‑ Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture
"All, or at least some, might be forgiven if there were just one likable character or memorable joke."
‑ Rafer Guzman, Newsday
"21 & Over is lifeless, forgettable, and bland. It's the type of film you can walk in on halfway through and not only figure out what is happening in 30 seconds, but become bored 30 seconds later. It's as close to fast food as cinema gets."
‑ Richard Haridy, Quickflix
"An enjoyable third act can't save this uneven comedy, which strives to be more serious than it should."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"There's a reason 21 & Over feels like a low-rent, teen version of The Hangover. It was written and directed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the two scribes who created the comedy blockbuster. Only this time, they're out of new ideas."
‑ Forrest Hartman, Reno Gazette-Journal
"One of those brashly formulaic all-night-long youth-party flicks that's redeemed by the speed and personality of the actors."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Among the ingredients "21" is missing: the infectiously random silliness of a Zach Galifianakis, the smug hunkiness of a Bradley Cooper, and any sort of Vegas-y gloss whatsoever."
‑ Tom Russo, Boston Globe
"It's all very crude and crass, yet the trio remain essentially likeable, notwithstanding their riotous behaviour."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"Unlike Project X, which was a nihilistic, anarchistic, hedonistic binge on partying, 21 & Over had an actual story to it."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"It's not exactly groundbreaking but it still takes a lot of brains to craft something as brazenly stupid as this."
‑ Andy Lea, Daily Star
"These guys get into more trouble in one night than members of this film's target audience will encounter in their entire college lives."
‑ Nicole Herrington, New York Times
"21 & Over provides lots of fun while the beer flows. Too bad the R.A. felt like he had to come in and ask everyone about their major."
‑ Alonso Duralde, TheWrap
"Some more revisions of the screenplay and this could have been a minor meathead classic instead of disposable junk."
‑ Eric D. Snider, EricDSnider.com
"I'm not the right audience for this film, but then again neither are some 16,000 readers at the Internet Movie Database who gave it a cumulative rating of 5.7 out of 10. I think a few 21 & Unders might have pushed it up a few points."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"Despite the veneer of vomit-stained raucousness, it's fairly mild stuff ..."
‑ Alistair Harkness, Scotsman
