The raucous oeuvre of producer Todd Phillips (Old School; The Hangover) hovers over this mash-up of the hormonal audacity in Superbad with the faux-amateur video conceit of Cloverfield. The result is a house party flick in which the teenage participants wreak more havoc to a suburban East Pasadena mock-up than a monster marauding through Manhattan. For his 17th birthday, high school nebbish Thomas (Thomas Mann) throws a pool party at his house with two friends, Jonah Hill-lookalike JB (Jonathan Daniel Brown) and Costa (Oliver Cooper). With Thomas' parents predictably out of town and the number of inebriated and increasingly libidinous partygoers metastasizing into the hundreds, mayhem ensues that's ultra-bawdy before climaxing as hyper-ludicrous. The entire spectacle is a profane, decadent John Hughes palimpsest holding minor significance as an anarchic tome on contemporary restless youth.
