The story follows three seemingly anonymous high school seniors as they attempt to finally make a name for themselves. Their idea is innocent enough: let's throw a party that no one will forget... but nothing could prepare them for this party. Word spreads quickly as dreams are ruined, records are blemished and legends are born. "Project X" is a warning to parents and police everywhere.

2012 Guide Analysis: "Said to be a hard R-rated $12 million comedy, this initially quite secretive project sees "Hangover" director Todd Phillips and Joel Silver teaming to produce what is essentially a 'found footage' film that's not a sci-fi or horror effort - rather it's a teen comedy.
The trailer gives up the basic plot line of a geeky guy and his friends planning a house party that'll be big and cool enough to change their social reputations and get them laid. Things soon spiral out of control with cars driving into pools, dogs humping and SWAT teams being called in to handle the crowds.
British video/commercials director Nima Nourizadeh makes his feature directing debut on the project which was shot in Los Angeles in 2010 between Phillips' commitments to "Due Date" and "The Hangover 2". With a cast of entirely unknowns it looks decidedly tedious - yet teenagers will no doubt have some fun with it."
