QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: Three high-school teens seek to throw a legendary party.
PLOT:
High school senior Thomas (THOMAS MANN) is about to celebrate his birthday and his two best friends -- foul-mouthed, inappropriate Costa (OLIVER COOPER) and pudgy, awkward JB (JONATHAN DANIEL BROWN) -- have designs to throw the biggest party they and their classmates have ever seen. The party will be at Thomas' house while his Dad (PETER MACKENZIE) and Mom (CAITLIN DULANY) are out of town, and the three promote it in every way they can think of: flyers, radio ads, Facebook, Craigslist, and so forth.

They secure plenty of alcohol, marijuana, blow-up dolls, and food. They also briefly run afoul of a drug dealer named T-Rick (RICK SHAPIRO), who becomes irate after Thomas, Costa, and JB steal his prized garden gnome (prized because it holds a secret stash of Ecstasy pills).

Thomas is hoping to score with his dream girl, Alexis (ALEXIS KNAPP), at the party. Costa and JB are looking to score -- period. It's not long before the party spins completely out of control as word spreads. Soon, hundreds of teens and young adults are seen crowding the street of Thomas' neighborhood, police and SWAT teams in riot gear begin amassing in force, news choppers start flying overhead, T-Rick shows up with a flame thrower, and police in riot gear start amassing. Amid the chaos, Thomas finds himself falling in love with Kirby (KIRBY BLISS BLANTON), the nice girl he's known all his life.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Yes. For many teenagers, this film will undoubtedly be assigned a mystique and might even become something of an R-rated rite of passage.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For crude and sexual content throughout, nudity, drugs, drinking, pervasive language, reckless behavior and mayhem - all involving teens.
CAST AS ROLE MODELS:
  • THOMAS MANN plays a generally good-natured high school senior who is easily...

    I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

    I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

    I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

    Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

    I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
