I haven't had a good laugh at the movies in a long time. But "21 and Over" is one film that made me do that several times. When I heard that it was produced by the same people as "The Hangover," I figured it must be good--and it definitely was.

This film mostly centers around three young men in their 20's. Skylar Astin stars as Casey while Miles Teller plays Miller, best friends of straight-A student Jeff Chang (played by Justin Chon). It is Chang's 21st birthday and his two buddies came over to invite him to do some partying. However, there's only one problem. He has a very important medical school interview the next morning at 8 a.m.

While Chang is hesitant at first, he later agrees to go out and have one beer. One beer becomes two and three and before you know it, he is completely wasted. The three 20-year-olds went from one bar to the next. Casey and Miller met a cute blonde by the name of Nicole (played by Sarah Wright) who becomes their love interest.

Meanwhile, when it was time to take Chang home, the two best friends forgot where he lives. So they went on a quest to find out. They started by breaking into a sorority house hoping to find Nicole. Casey and Miller snuck Chang into the ladies room and tied him up while the two looked for Nicole. However, it was a Latina sorority house. They needed to make a quick exit and try a different house. The two boys threw Chang out a second-story window and then he bounced on something and landed in the bushes.

Next, they find Nicole at a different sorority house. The only problem is--she doesn't know where Chang lives either. So she gave Casey and Miller the name of her boyfriend, who supposedly knows where everyone lives. The two young boys met up with that guy at a big outdoor party with a bonfire. Casey and Miller discover that Chang was carrying a loaded gun in one of his pockets. It went off unexpectedly and then a bull went charging toward the crowd.

The two young men got a hold of the cell phone from Nicole's boyfriend. They found Chang's address, but it turned out to be his previous address. So they went there anyways. There was a huge party going on inside that dormitory. Casey and Miller were told the R.A., who was on the eighth floor, might know where Chang lives. So they had to complete a series of challenges--one on each floor--to get up there. Those consisted of beer pong, drinking an entire gallon of milk the fastest and other crazy antics.

The questions you'll be able to answer at the end of this film are: Will Chang get home early enough for his medical school interview? If so, does he want to go through with it? I'm not going to tell you. You'll have to see the movie to find out.

Jon Lucas and Scott Moore made their directorial debut with this movie. Other stars in "21 and Over" include Francois Chau, Samantha Futerman, Dustin Ybarra, Daniel Booko, Jonathan Keltz, Brenna Smith and Nikki Phoenix. Scenes for this film were shot in Santa Clarita, Calif., The University of Washington in Seattle, and in Linyi, China.

I really enjoyed this movie a lot. I would recommend it for people in their 20's and 30's. I think that anyone over the age of 40 would probably say it is too cheesy and those older than that might think it's inappropriate. The film is rated 'R' for sexual content, language, some graphic nudity, drugs and drinking.

Look for "21 and Over" in theaters nationwide beginning on Friday, March 1.

OVERALL RATING: A
