'Project X' Review

When I first saw the trailer for Project X back in November, I seriously thought for a second that it was a horror movie. (With all the hand-held found-footage shots, it just seemed obvious.) But, no, Project X is a teen comedy that incorporates the what-you're-seeing-is-real gimmick to tell the story of some nerds who throw an epic party. Apparently, being a high school kid in Pasadena in the 21st century is way more awesome than it was being a high school kid in a small town in Illinois back in the day. My Project X review is up at Deadspin. (And, for what it's worth, I'm kicking myself I didn't mention in my review the awesomely huh? cameo from Miles Teller in the movie.)
