Stuffing a midget in an oven and setting the house on fire might be this year's hottest new party games, but Delaney and company didn't have anything to do with it. One of the most prominent aspects of "Project X" is the fact that it was filmed as a "found footage" movie, with events staged to appear as though they are YouTube clips and cell-phone videos in order to seem more authentic. And for once this sort of conceit is more authentic, because Delaney did in fact become a worldwide viral sensation after footage of an televised interview he conducted with an Australian news anchorman went global.
The clip hit the web before Delaney had even told his parents about the party. Here's hoping their iPhone came with a built-in defibrillator. As soon as the first trailers for "Project X" hit the web, critics and movie buffs began pointing out the similarities between the movie and Delaney's party; just Google it and you'll come up with dozens of sites claiming "Project X" was based on that crazy night.

But Bacall and producer Todd Phillips haven't been nearly so clear about things, with neither of them giving the theory much credence in their many, many interviews on the subject. Bacall merely says that Phillips came to him with the idea, while Phillips talks more about wanting to capture the feel -- and power -- of the viral sensation than Delaney's party vibe. Protestations aside, it should be noted that Phillips is no stranger to making this kind of film, having previously brought the "Hangover" franchise into the world.
It's true that Delaney's party pre-dated the original "Hangover," but pundits who have labeled "Project X" a "teen 'Hangover'" aren't far from wrong.
It's hard to believe that Phillips wouldn't have come across Delaney's YouTube video while doing research for one of these films.
Whether or not the events "Project X" was directly based on Delaney's party, one thing can be agreed upon: As they leave, T-Rick discovers the theft and chases after them but they escape in Thomas' mini-van. As night falls, the party's start time passes but no one turns up and Thomas worries that the party will fail. Suddenly, partygoers arrive en masse.
Thomas intends to limit the party to the backyard and pool house with the house guarded by Everett and Tyler, two young security guards hired by Costa. However, more and more people begin to arrive and the party moves beyond their control and into the house.
Thomas questions Costa on how he advertised the party, forcing him to confess that he put ads on Craigslist and on a local radio station, worried that no one would attend. Things escalate quickly and the police arrive, responding to a noise complaint.

The partygoers remain silent, convincing the officers that the party has already ended. The police leave and the party resumes. T-Rick's gnome is smashed, revealing that it contains a large amount of ecstasy tablets, which are quickly consumed by the partygoers, including Thomas and his friends.
Thomas kisses Kirby and reveals that he loves her. Alexis meanwhile flirts with Thomas throughout the night and eventually seduces him. Kirby walks in on the pair as they are about to have sex and leaves the party upset. The noise and chaos of the party, which has now spilled into the surrounding neighborhood, receives televised news coverage with helicopters flying over the house. A dwarf guest drives Thomas' dad's Mercedes into the pool after being put into an oven by other partygoers earlier.
The police return in force but are overwhelmed and repelled by the guests. They decide to let the party end naturally before moving in. T-Rick arrives armed with a flamethrower, setting fire to the trees and cars in search of Costa and in an attempt to reclaim his gnome, forcing the guests to flee and the party to end. The police shoot his flamethrower pack and it explodes.
By morning, the boys return to their respective homes to discover what punishment awaits them. After his parents return, Thomas' father commends him for managing to throw the party because he thought he was a loser, but he uses Thomas' college fund to pay for the damages. At school, the boys are cheered by the students and Thomas reconciles romantically with Kirby.
The epilogue reveals that T-Rick is recovered alive following the explosion; Thomas is convicted for disturbing the peace, contributing to the delinquency of minors, and inciting a riot; and Costa and J.Проект X: Дорвались
