Think you had a wild 21st birthday? Unless your evening ended with you screaming atop a minivan with a teddy bear dangling from your genitals, it’s safe to assume the guys of 21 and Over have you beat.
Justin Chon (Twilight) stars as straight-A college student Jeff Chang, whose plans for a quiet birthday celebration are thwarted in epic fashion when his two BFFs (Pitch Perfect‘s Skylar Astin and Project X‘s Miles Teller) surprise him with a night out. Watch the new trailer after the jump.

It seems Hollywood isn’t going to rest until there’s one of these for every age group. The Hangover kicked things off a few years ago with the 30something wolf pack, the teens got theirs in last year’s Project X, and the senior citizens are poised to live it up in Last Vegas this December.
As movies like this go, 21 and Over doesn’t look too bad. Directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore already have some solid experience with the subgenre, having penned the first Hangover movie. There’ve been so many Hangover knockoffs since then (including Hangover Part II) that the premise doesn’t feel so fresh, but the trailer gets in a couple of amusing jokes. And the cast is an interesting one. Astin and Teller have been on the verge of breaking out for a while now, so I’m curious to see how they’ll fare as the leads.
21 and Over hits March 1.
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.
