21 & Over

23 Jun

21 & overThe night before his big medical school interview, a promising student celebrates his 21st birthday with his two best friends. (IMDb)

So, I’m in a couple of different places on this one. Parts of it were seriously laugh out loud funny, then they would try to be super serious, then they would be like just kidding this is a comedy, and overall it just had no clue what it wanted to be. I mean, it was trying to be the Hangover for 20 somethings, but it didn’t quite get there. Yes, there were parts that were hilarious, but that’s attributed to the three main characters, played by Miles Teller, Skylar Astin, and Justin Chon. The three of them carry this sub par script and all of the great moments belong to them. Something I do have a problem with is profanity for profanity’s sake. A string of swear words doesn’t exactly constitute as funny. And throwing in shit randomly doesn’t make a joke funnier. In the end, this is comedy for the lowest common denominator, but however, I did find myself laughing so that’s got to say something.
