My chosen movie was:

Project X - 2012

Project X is a 2012 American found footage teen comedy film directed by Nima Nourizadeh, written by Michael Bacall and Matt Drake and produced by Todd Phillips. The film follows three friends—Thomas (Thomas Mann), Costa (Oliver Cooper) and J.B. (Jonathan Daniel Brown)—who plan to gain popularity by throwing a party, a plan which quickly escalates out of their control,based on the real lives of Quentin Nicholas Aka costa,Tristan morgan aka Jb,Lance Dominik Nicholas,Keiran Nicholas.

The title Project X was initially a placeholder for a final title, but interest generated by the secretive title kept it in place. A nationwide open casting call was employed to find fresh faces. The majority of the cast were sourced from this casting call, but a few with prior acting credits, such as Mann, were accepted after multiple auditions. Filming took place on sets in Los Angeles over five weeks on a US$12 million budget. The film is presented as a home video from the perspective of an attendee using a camera to document the night's events.

Project X was released in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom on March 2, 2012, and grossed over $100 million worldwide during its theatrical run. Criticism focused on the "loathsome" behavior of the lead characters and the disregard for the effects of drug use. Other reviews considered it funny and thrilling, and equated it to a modern incarnation of the 1978 comedy Animal House. Following release, incidents of large-scale parties referenced or blamed the film as an inspiration.

An excellent comedy, full of many adventures and unimaginable situations. A dream of every teenager, an epic and disastrous party with lots of laughs and wonderful situations.

As a good Brazilian and bohemian, I loved the movie and I swear I would like to be at one of these parties or maybe organize it, as incredible as it may seem, the movie is based on real events. A great movie to laugh a lot with friends and family.
