’21 and Over': Nothing Bad Ever Happens When You’re Drunk — TRAILER

21 and Over

In real life, angry police officers do not respond well to wordplay. There is a scene in the below trailer for 21 and Over that features central character Jeff Chang (Justin Chon), intoxicated beyond judgment and function, standing naked atop a parked car. He is approached by a pair of local police officers who demand, as one might expect them to, that he “get down” immediately. A fertile ground for homedy (that’s homonym comedy), the phrase inspires Jeff Chang to begin dancing, embracing the slang interpretation of the officers’ word choice. Taking note of the young offender’s manipulation of their terminology, one cop turns to the other, apparently impressed by this clever turn of phrase.

And throughout the rest of the 21 and Over trailer, we see other examples of heightened reality. We see an unconscious college student tossed out of multiple second story windows, enduring no apparent damages after either incident. We see a bull wreaking havoc (but not too much havoc, just wacky, kooky havoc) in a suburban area. We see a truck tumble recklessly off the road while its driver, apparently on some kind of stimulant, seems to be having the time off his life. We see the film’s two misguided young heroes (Miles Teller and Skylar Astin) embarking upon countless ill-conceived endeavors, but without any hint of reaping the consequences.

The ultimate moral of the story can only be discovered by watching the film entirely. But we’re betting that no true comeuppances are doled out… check out the trailer below and share your thoughts.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
