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.

* KarmaHoudini: Costa, the one who planned the entire party, gets his charges dropped because his family can afford a good lawyer. [[spoiler:He's still awaiting the results of three paternity tests, though.]]

** 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).

* TheDanza: All of the characters share the same first names as their actor, although Costa only refers to his first name (Oliver) when telling the neighbours about the party.



* EnforcedMethodActing: The three lead actors were sent to Disneyland together and spent a weekend up at a cabin in Big Bear City so as to make a more believable friendship between them. Also, during filming of the party scenes, the music kept playing even when cameras weren't rolling so as to maintain the party atmosphere among the extras.
** Filming was also done chronologically, which many of the cast members pointed out that the exhausted, 'drugged up' look of the characters was also down to having to shoot more extreme and intense parts of the film one after another.

* AesopAmnesia: Costa promises his next party is going to be even bigger.



* CreepyChild‎: Although Dax is pushing the child part, everyone is creeped out by his {{Goth}} appearance, and the fact that he lives alone segues into implications that he's a SelfMadeOrphan.



* SeriousBusiness: Costa and parties.
** The security kid with the taser is in way over his head and knows it, but it doesn't stop him from taking his self-proclaimed job very seriously.



* WasItReallyWorthIt

to:

* WasItReallyWorthItWasItReallyWorthIt: Thomas asks himself this at the end.

* DrugsAreBad: Surprisingly played straight; whilst it was most likely unintentional, IMDb's parental guide makes a very good point, saying that even though the use of drugs is portrayed as harmless fun, the party suddenly goes downhill from there which throws off the positive aspect.
