21 & Over (2013)

Director: Jon Lucas, Scott Moore

Stars: Miles Teller, Justin Chon, Jonathan Keltz, Skylar Astin, Sarah Wright

Miller and Casey decided to meet up with their high school friend Jeff Chang at his college. It's Jeff's 21st birthday, but he has an interview for med school the next day. His friends talk him into to going out for one drink, but it turns into a night of heavy drinking and partying till the wee hours of the morning. Jeff gets too drunk and his friends lose him several times during the night. They have to make sure that Jeff gets to his appointment in the morning.

First of all, who in the hell acts like this?! I guess the douche bags of the world. Here is the breakdown of the characters. Jeff Chang is the only character where he is called by his first and last name, because his white friends are a bit racists, or Jeff is just too hard to say alone. Casey is the really cute guy next door that has a good future, but he has terrible taste in friends. He also wants to be that cool guy that everybody likes. Miller is the biggest loser in the entire movie. These are the guys at parties that no one really knows, but people know his face. He acts like he can nail any female that he wants, but the true is normal woman hate him. He is the jackass of the group or party. These are the people you stay away from in life.

This movie was so brotastic that it made me want to vomit all over the place. They are trying to bring back the college movies from the 70's and 80's, but they have no idea on how to do that. There is no fun or pay off at the end of the movie. You really don't care about the characters at all. Most of the movie is about getting drunk and dealing with the college stupidity. Those guys and girls that take the whole college games and made up rules to heart. They are a waste of time.

They did make a good point in the movie that all of those "college kids" would end up in the suburbs working for corporations and climbing an invisible ladder. Those are the people that let it all out when they are in college, cause "is the last time to let loose and have fun". They are the actual boring stuffy people in life, because they never learned how to have fun in life, just getting drunk.

The is sad representation of college movie. It is like watching bad commercials. You are too lazy to change the channel, so you keep on watching the movie. Watch it once to make an opinion of your own. I watched it so you don't have to.
