Project X(treme sexism=comedy?)

If you haven’t heard, Project X is about a few unpopular guys throwing a ridiculous party. Some people have described it as, “Superbad meets The Hangover.” This is an interesting statement because even though Superbad and The Hangover are both raunchy comedies, they come from two incredibly different places. Superbad has this thing called a heart and actually respects its characters. When I saw the trailer for Project X is was easy to see this film didn’t possess those two qualities. You may or may not remember I was pretty upset by the Project X trailer and it’s rating I compared it to Shame’s NC-17 rating. Last week a blogger named Meredith Borders actually saw the film and wrote an amazing review to tackles the film better than I could. Go to Indies Unchained to see a few great quotes from the review, a link to the full review and my original critique of the sexist imagery all over the Project X trailer.
