Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This is a film desperately in need of a McLovin. Also, jokes would help. And comedic chemistry between the actors. And an ending that isn't a bolted-on cop-out. Save yourselves. It's too late for me."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
""Project X" bears a cravenly piggish attitude toward rewarding socially unacceptable behavior that feels unseemly rather than exciting, so-what rather than so-funny and obvious instead of new."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"A politically-incorrect and surprisingly uneven teen comedy that 20-somethings will likely enjoy."
‑ John Hanlon, John Hanlon Reviews
"Unlike prior 'house party' movies, Project X says nothing meaningful about its subject matter and, instead, paints teens as unlikeable and reckless automatons."
‑ Ben Kendrick, ScreenRant
"It wants to be the ultimate party movie, but its mean-spirited nastiness, dedication to shock-value humor, and lack of any kind of base-level humanity proves that it's really the ultimate teensploitation film."
‑ Eric Melin, Scene-Stealers.com
"The movie has all the heft of a tweet, but Philips has made it look pimp and, until the police end the party, Project X really is a riot."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
""There's a midget in the oven!" is about as inspired as the dialogue and set pieces get in this queasy-making entertainment about a 17-year-old dude's birthday bacchanalia."
‑ Melissa Anderson, Village Voice
"PROJECT X is the male gaze substantiated and concentrated into ninety sweaty minutes."
‑ Meredith Borders, Badass Digest
"Project X misses the mark some of the time, but makes up for it by hosting the party of the decade."
‑ Kristal Cooper, We Got This Covered
"An enjoyable, if very sloppy, jaunt into total anarchy, Project X isn't a film about morals, but what happens when all rules are thrown out the window."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"Ultimately, Project X is an example of why gimmicks rarely work, especially once the new shine has worn off."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"The parent and homeowner in me were appalled by the debauchery and incredible property damage. The teenage boy in me couldn't help but smirk anyway."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Project X misses the mark some of the time, but makes up for it by hosting the party of the decade."
‑ Christian Law, We Got This Covered
"There'll be many middle-aged, middle class haters declaring it morally bankrupt, but most will be able to file it under 'Guilty Pleasures' alongside Jackass, Bachelor Party and...er...forcing your pet to dance on its hind legs."
‑ Matt Looker, TheShiznit.co.uk
"It's kind of like reality TV. You get what you pay for."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
