Remember the night of your 21st birthday?
You do? Really? Man, your sucky friends let you down.
Meet Casey and Miller, the semi-sober dudes in 21 and Over who do what best friends are supposed to do and take their pal, Jeff Chang, out for a night impossible to remember to celebrate his baptism as a legal drinker. Never mind that Jeff Chang has his medical school interview at 8 a.m. sharp the next morning, or that his father might honor-kill his son if he messes with his promising future. You only turn 21 once, am I right?
Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the writers behind The Hangover, have outdone themselves with their latest, which graciously takes us along for a night of co-ed debauchery. Fans of Pitch Perfect will immediately recognize Skylar Astin as one of the friends who remains upright, and Miles Teller breaks out of the serious drama mold he established in Rabbit Hole and Sundance’s The Spectacular Now. Twilight’s Justin Chon nails the role I’m sure was initially pitched to him as “Mr. Chow-meets-Bernie-Lomax.”
The film opens in theaters tomorrow night, and you can see an exclusive video clip below, in which the two friends have to climb some frat’s “tower of power” to help Jeff Chang survive the night. There’s drinking games involved, Mardi Gras beads, and of course, a Wizard Elvis.
