The film stars Justin Chon of Twilight as Jeff Chang, an upstanding straight-A college student whose twenty-first birthday happens to fall on the eve of a crucial medical school interview. Jeff's plan to stay in for the night is derailed by the surprise appearance of his two oldest friends, Miller and Casey, played by Miles Teller and Skylar Astin of the Footloose remake and Pitch Perfect, respectively. The two convince Jeff to indulge in just one beer, but that single drink turns into a night that could endanger Jeff's future but will live forever in partying infamy.
Produced by Ryan Kavanugh and David Hoberman, with Tucker Tooley, Jason Felts, Luo Yan, and David Manpearl as executive producers, 21 and Over marks a big moment for a duo familiar with cinematic debauchery. Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the writers behind one of the most successful comedies ever released, The Hangover, make their feature directorial debut here, working from their own screenplay.
