21 And Over: Blu-ray Review










The Movie:

Casey (Skylar Astin) and Miller (Miles Teller) decide to surprise their friend Jeff (Justin Chon) at his apartment for his 21st birthday. They quickly find out that it’s the eve of his big job interview and he’s very resistant to celebrate his birthday. After finally convincing him otherwise they go on the ultimate night of bar hopping and Jeff gets completely hammered. They attempt to call it a night and get him back home but they forgot one thing…they can’t remember where he lives. Now they must race against the clock and try to get him home in time for the one moment that could shape the rest of his future.

We’re all familiar with the raunchy teen comedy and have seen many variations of the same type of formula. The only difference with this one is that these characters are a bit older. I wish the story would’ve been a bit more clever as far as having the “day before a big interview” plot line BUT (yes, there’s a but) I think what saved the movie was the jokes and gags. Now the humor in the film isn’t necessarily for everyone but I found it pretty funny. A lot of it I has to do with Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, who wrote and directed the film. They took their comedic style from their hit The Hangover and applied it to college life which fits right in perfectly. Although Chon, Teller and Astin have already been in quite a few films I think this has to be their breakout work. They compliment each other so well and the chemistry between all three while on screen makes for some really funny moments. One of my favorites has to be the bar hopping montage where as Jeff drinks more he finds creative ways to shove his drivers license in each bouncers face. Besides the somewhat predictable plot this was a really funny flick and I definitely recommend picking this one up. If you loved The Hangover then this will be right in your ballpark.

Special Features:

Tower Of Power – A quick rundown of each level of the Tower Of Power that they have to conquer in order to get more information to get Jeff home.

Levels Of Intoxication – The cast goes through what each level of drunkenness is and how Jeff pretty much goes through each one throughout the film.

Gag Reel – With a movie as funny as this one this gag reel delivers just as many laughs.

21 & Over is available NOW on Blu-ray and DVD from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment
