The comedy marks the directorial debuts of Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the writing duo behind The Hangover and The Change-Up. And with its UK release date fast approaching this Friday, we’ve got an exclusive clip to share from the film, teasing the comedic chemistry between the young leading trio.
Straight-A college student Jeff Chang has always done what’s expected of him. But when his two best friends Casey and Miller surprise him with a visit for his 21st birthday, he decides to do the unexpected for a change, even though his critical medical school interview is early the next morning. What was supposed to be one beer becomes one night of chaos, over indulgence and utter debauchery in this outrageous comedy.
Miles Teller (Rabbit Hole, Project X), Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect), and Justin Chon (Twilight) take the leads as the young adults, with Sarah Wright (Parks and Recreation) completing the cast nicely.
Lucas and Moore are directing from their own script, with Oscar-nominated duo David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman (The Fighter, Monk) producing.
Teller has been making a great name for himself in recent years, starring alongside Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart in the Oscar-nominated Rabbit Hole. He was last seen in the sleeper hit, Project X, last year. And with James Ponsoldt’s The Spectacular Now earning all involved very strong praise at its Sundance debut, Teller’s slate continues to look promising.
21 and Over will be hitting UK theatres this Friday, 3rd May. For now, here’s the new clip to get you in the mood for the weekend.
