WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
After two lifelong pals (Astin, Teller) take their 21-year-old friend (Chon) out for a night of celebratory drinks, they wind up embarking on an all-night quest to return home.
IS IT A GOOD MOVIE?
Stop me if you’ve heard this one three time before…

Lifelong buddies Casey (Skylar Astin, Pitch Perfect) and Miller (Miles Teller, 2011’s Footloose) decide to take their just-legal pal Jeff (Justin Chon, The Twilight Saga) out to the bar the night before his interview for medical school. Jeff is reluctant, but gives in for “just one beer.”

And they went home after one drink without getting into any trouble. No—the boys get mixed up in bar fights, binge drinking, sorority paddlings, thorn bushes, golden showers, disturbed buffalos, circumcisions, and on and on.

21 & Over is, as the poster is eager to point out, “from the writers of The Hangover,” who clearly had no interest in branching out beyond the drunk-boneheads-raise-hell-across-town-in-the-course-of-one-night-and-race-the-clock device that made them marketable (Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, for those eager to know the names of the guys responsible for Ken Jeong jumping out a trunk naked and Justin Chon eating a tampon). One of the major differences between 21 & Over and The Hangover (aside from, you know, the jokes) is that Phil, Stu and Alan had enough personality to make them a fun hang. But we don’t want to hang out with Casey, Miller and Jeff when they’re in their dorm room, so why would we want to party with them when they’re drunk and reckless?

21 & Over seems to be comprised of shared stories of booze-inspired antics, which might make for a decent poker night with the gang, but doesn’t translate well to screen. Instead, 21 & Over is more on the level of every direct-to-video National Lampoon’s frat comedy you skipped.

THE EXTRAS
Levels of Intoxication (3:48) looks at the many stages of Jeff’s drunkenness throughout 21 & Over.

Tower of Power (3:08) offers a brief look at the eight-level challenge found in 21 & Over.

Gag Reel (2:23)

Theatrical Trailer

Sneak Peek

Also included are a DVD and Digital Copy.

FINAL DIAGNOSIS
21 & Over wants to be the next Hangover, but has all of the raunch and maturity of a direct-to-video National Lampoon’s entry. Special features include a gag reel and a look at one of the character’s alcohol intake.

I have not seen the Bluray...

but I thought this movie was pretty funny with a twelve pack to accompany me.
