HE’S GETTING DOWN, SIR

21andover21 & OVER (2013)
3 and a half out of 5 stars

Let’s just say I did not expect to see so much of Skylar Astin.

Here comes a teenage version of the Hangover – same amount of havoc  with more hormones. Miller (Miles Teller) and Casey (Skylar Astin) helps their childhood buddy (Jeff Chang) celebrate his 21st birthday with a bang right before a big medical school interview the next morning.

Granted, this did not warrant as much laughs as the ‘adult version’ but it still delivered. Justin Chon really went out there and became a wild drunk. All the shaking and dancing with the teddy bear… On a wild night such as this, there are bound to be some recurring characters and Randy just takes the cake. His sidekicks are super hilarious, ending each sentence with “Randy”. The Chief is also quite amusing.

But one of the main reasons I watched this was Skylar Astin! He’s still so earnestly funny and wow, those guys really worked hard on their v-line, don’t they? The sorority deals with outsiders pretty sternly and us, audiences, really benefitted from it. Miles Teller, last seen in the Footloose reboot, steals scenes as the fast-talking, sarcastic friend. He definitely needs to work on his pick-up lines.

Jeff Chang: I’m 21! Blackjack, motherfucker!
