Plot: Three high school seniors throw a birthday party to make a name for themselves. As the night progresses, things spiral out of control as word of the party spreads.
Cast: Thomas Mann (It's Kind of a Funny Story), Oliver Cooper, and Jonathan Daniel
Verdict: Hmm, IMDb has it logged as a comedy, but the trailer would suggest something a little more serious. Maybe it's the Kid Cudi musical assist, but the way it's shot reminds me of the party montage scenes in HBO's "How to Make It In America." That series finds the funny in life's serious situations, so maybe it'll have that vibe. As for the robot rocket launch towards the end, I have no clue what that suggests. But so far, I'm intrigued. I hope that for once Hollywood is going to portray a suburban party the way it truly goes down, devoid of the Disney PG-13 filter and the romanticized happy endings.
Release Date: March 2
