Opening: 21 & Over 

A half-assed attempt to mimic The Hangover, 21 & Over is a mess of a movie that's just not very funny. While The Hangover was set in Vegas, 21 and Over takes place on a college campus where Jeff Change (Justin Chon) is busy prepping for an early morning interview that will determine whether or not he gets admitted to medical school. Casey (Skylar Astin) and Miller (Miles Teller), pals of his since high school, show up on his doorstep unannounced and demand he go out with them to celebrate his 21st birthday. Drunken hijinks ensue. In the end, the film tries to put forth a message about self-determination and not adhering to parents’ expectations. But the message is delivered with little subtlety, and it’s just too hard to take that concept seriously.
