The writers of The Hangover stick with the same formula for this university-aged romp about three young guys who get far too drunk for their own good. It even opens on the morning after (they're walking naked across campus) before cycling back to piece together what actually happened. But all of the humour is as cheap as it can be, merely laughing at stupid behaviour rather than mining much genuine comedy out of the situation. At least the actors find some chemistry along the way.
Our three chuckleheads are party-boy Miller (Teller), smart-guy Casey (Astin) and their pal Jeff Chang (Chon), who is turning 21 at midnight. This prompts Miller and Casey to propose a night of drunkenness to celebrate his legal drinking age in style. But Jeff has his med school interview in the morning, so they have to sneak past his terrifying dad (Chau) to have just one drink together. Unsurprisingly, this drink turns into an epic bar crawl, culminating in Jeff's unconsciousness. And since Miller and Casey can't remember where he lives, they go on a ludicrously convoluted quest to find his address. This involves enraging a sorority house, releasing the university's mascot buffalo and tormenting the tough-talking boyfriend (Keltz) of a cheerleader (Wright) who catches Casey's eye.
Obviously, there's one massive problem with this whole premise: a cold shower and a cup of coffee would revive Jeff pretty easily. But then, Miller and Casey wouldn't need to go through, say, eight levels of frat-house drinking games to find a guy who might know Jeff's address. At least all of the antics give Teller and Astin a chance to deepen their characters a bit, mainly in the way they interact with each other as childhood pals who have taken unexpected turns along the way. Chon doesn't have quite as much to do with Jeff. Sure, he's been pushed into studying medicine by his fearsome dad, but he spends the entire movie in a drunken stupor.

Jeff Chang is a typical high-achieving college student with a strict and proud father who is determined to get his son into medical school even if that means making him stay in on his 21st birthday in order to prepare for a crucial medical exam the next morning. However, Jeff is visited by his two best friends, who he has known forever, on his birthday night determined to drag him out for a night of fun, frolics and fraternisation with females. Predictably, the night turns into chaos as the three boys' antics spin out of control and Jeff finds himself being attacked by girls at a slumber party, drinking himself into a vomit soaked stupor, running through the streets in ladies underwear and having a run in with the cops. A typical night in the life of a college boy, however with Jeff's father on the warpath, Jeff's friends are feeling the pressure to get him to his exam the next day.
'21 And Over' serves as the directorial debut of Jon Lucas and Scott Moore (collaborators on 'The Hangover' and 'Four Christmases') who were also responsible for writing the screenplay. The hilarity will be very familiar to those who know of the writing duo's previous projects and it's definitely set to be as much of a hit on its release on March 1st 2013.
Directors: Jon Lucas, Scott Moore

Mila Kunis, as we reported yesterday, will go to the Marine Ball after all. Mila Kunis hit the news big-time last week, when Sgt. Scott Moore asked her on a date via YouTube, and her Friends With Benefits co-star Justin Timberlake convinced her to accept. Rumours then began to circulate that she had pulled out of the date due to scheduling conflicts, but Kunis has now had more to say on these rumours, claiming she had planned to go on the date all along. According to People magazine, she told gathered press at a Friends With Benefits media event: "Never did I say that I was not going," she went on to say that other people had made up the rumour and ".people believed it, unfortunately."
She also said that although she is working at the time of the Marine Ball, she has been given the green light to attend: ""I accepted an invitation and I'm staying true to my word," she said, "I got permission to be released from work for the day, so I'm flying in and flying out." Timberlake has also been the recipient of a YouTube offer from a Marine this week, with servicewoman Kelsey De Santis asking him for a date in response to Moore's video, and E! Online reported last night that the Sexy Back star will accept, if his schedule will allow it.
