* BittersweetEnding: Thomas becomes the most popular kid in school, and he manages to reconcile with Kirby, but his home is destroyed, his parents have had to use his college fund to pay for the damage, he'll probably be in debt into his adult years to fix it all and he's been indicted on several charges.

Not to be confused with [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093793/ the 1987 movie]] of the same name, which was about Creator/MatthewBroderick and a bunch of chimpanzees in the Air Force. Or the video game ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone''.

'''''Film/ProjectX''''' is a 2012 {{found footage film|s}} produced by Todd Phillips (of ''Film/TheHangover'' fame) and Joel Silver. It is about three teenage boys, Thomas, Costa and J.B., who decide to celebrate the former's 17th birthday with [[WildTeenParty the most epic party]] in the school's history, after promising Thomas' parents that nothing crazy would happen to their house while they were gone for the weekend. Unfortunately for them, as the partygoers pour in, the situation quickly gets out of their control.

** Can be seen as this for WildTeenParty, showing (with a HUGE dose of exaggeration) absolutely everything that could go wrong in a party like this, and the consequences for the protagonists, which are quite severe (especially for [[spoiler:Thomas]]). Even the movie itself is sometimes referred to as a parental warning.

However, it's somewhat defeated when [[spoiler:most of the characters essentially get off scot-free, with the exception of Thomas, and even he manages to become hugely popular and gain the consequences for the protagonists, which are quite severe (especially for [[spoiler:Thomas]]).

* {{Expy}}: Many have liken the plot of the movie to ''Film/{{Superbad}}'', many of the characters are similar as is their motivation. The only difference is that it focuses on the party then trying to get to it.

* FunPersonified: Costa, even as the party is on its way to chaos, he still has focus of having fun and keeping the party going. [[spoiler:Also at the end of the movie, when he sees Thomas' minivan, his first comment is on how the car looks cooler.]]



** The trope is eventually {{Deconstructed|Trope}}. Thomas, Costa, J.B. and Dax are all [[spoiler: arrested or almost arrested]] at the end (as opposed to in most examples of the trope where the kids get by with a slap on the wrist).
