Did I ever tell you about the time I was invited to Jeff Chang's Birthday Party? It seems like months since I saw 21 & Over or 21 and Over as it is known in the UK and I don't remember much about the night I saw it.
Thinking back all I can really remember is that it all started with a facebook invite to Jeff Chang's 21st Birthday. Nice touch and amongst the best invites I have ever received for a screening.

This led to possibly one of the best screenings I have ever been to - in theme - with overflowing Pizza tables, beer on tap and drinking games. Yes drinking games like beer pong. Outstanding! It was like my college years all over again.
On the eve of a medical school interview that will shape his future, straight-A college student Jeff Chang (Justin Chon) is surprised by his two best friends, slightly square Casey (Skylar Astin) and wild party-loving Miller (Miles Teller), who take him out for a quick beer to celebrate his 21st birthday!
What ensues is a night of humiliation, chaos, nudity, arse-branding, guns and utter debauchery that may well change their paths forever.

What follows is a hilarious sometimes touching descent into near clinical madness, over 24 hours as events rapidly spiral out of control. Leaving Casey (Skylar Astin) and Miller (Miles Teller) to get Jeff to an interview for Medical School his overbearing father Dr. Chang (Francois Chau), has managed to set up for him. Only they don't know where Jeff Chan lives and they end up on a wild goose chase. Along the way things slowly fall apart between the trio as secrets are revealed and they rediscover themselves as well as each other.
