Directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore (writers of The Hangover) basically serve up yet another version of that film. This one is set in a college town, with college kids drinking a lot and getting into all kinds of college trouble.
Miles Teller (who was in the similarly stupid Project X) headlines as Miller, a friend of Jeff Chang (Justin Chon). Jeff Chang is turning 21, and Miller takes him out for a night of partying with pal Casey (Skylar Astin). Guess what? They all get crazy drunk and stuff. There’s nothing remotely close to new or original in these scenarios. The only thing keeping this from being totally lousy is that the actors play off of each other well, especially Teller and Astin.
If you crack up when people eat tampons or get their asses branded, well, this one’s for you. If you get mildly annoyed at racist humor coupled with guys playing drinking games, stay far away.
21 and Over is playing at theaters across the valley.
