21 and Over: movie review

  • Movies
  • Comedy

Neither as subversively fun as last year’s megadestructive Project X, nor as creative as The Hangover (on which these codirectors broke through as screenwriters), this further installment in the millennials-acting-badly genre serves as a distinctly average placeholder. Two best friends turn into the angel and the devil on the shoulders of their straight-A buddy (Justin Chon), about to come of legal drinking age. During their wild night, the pleasures (stingily served up for this MPAA rating) run along the typical hetero–douche-bag axis: breaking into a sorority, upchucking during a mechanical bull ride, etc. Still, watch your bro-based audience squirm when two of our heroes are forced to lock lips, then take a stroll across campus nude except for carefully placed tube socks.
