Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Straight-A college student Jeff Chang has always done what he was supposed to do. But when his two best friends take him out for his 21st birthday on the night before an important medical school interview, Jeff Chang snaps and decides to do everything he wants to do. What was supposed to be a quick beer becomes a night of humiliation, over indulgence and utter debauchery in this outrageous comedy about a rite of passage gone so very wrong.”

…A Porkies-lite college comedy that offers virtually nothing by way of laughs. Avoid. [1 out of 5]
Empire Magazine
…If you buy a ticket to a movie made by the writers of “The Hangover,” you're not looking for a nuanced character study. You're looking for 90 minutes of easy, raunchy laughs, and with “21 and Over” that's what you'll get. …

…The screenwriters of “The Hangover” have directed a tiresome, misjudged grossout comedy… [1 out of 5]
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian (UK)
…Silly boys, dirty girls, puking, swearing… it’s a kid’s dream come true…
Chris Hewitt, St. Paul Pioneer Press
…‘Over’ the limit for stupidity… [½ out of 4]
Kyle Smith, New York Post
…the filmmakers are more interested in projectile puking and bigoted remarks (flying out of Miller’s mouth with a wink of course). The movie’s humor—at the expense of Asians, Latinas and even Serbs—comes off just as tone deaf and random as Seth MacFarlane’s Oscar-night shenanigans. …
Nicole Herrington, The New York Times
…a thoroughly raunchy, debauched, unsuccessful comedy… strong homosexual content… at least 192 obscenities (including at least 135 “f” words)…
