Costa, Thomas and JB are three nerdy high school kids who, like every other high school kid in every other high school movie, decide to throw a house party that will get them noticed and attract otherwise unattainable ladies.
Thomas (Mann), whose parents are out of town for the weekend, wants to throw himself a birthday bash that will be “big enough to be cool.”
He figures 50 people maximum should do the trick. But his foul-mouthed friend, Costa (Cooper, who makes Jonah Hill in Superbad look saintly), has other plans.
He spreads the word through every medium possible – including Craigslist – and suddenly this cool-but-manageable party gets absolutely out of control (think the nights the Hangover guys can’t remember, but with more drinking, drugs and damage).
Though you’ve probably heard all the jokes before in any number of the teen party movies that have come before it, you’ve never really seen a party like this one. Project X, after all, tells the story of “the most epic high school party ever.”
