The character Jeff Chang (played by Justin Chon) wants a night out with his friends to celebrate his 21st birthday before he follows his father's wishes to get serious about studying for a medical career. It starts out innocently enough, but soon descends into mayhem because Jeff consistently gets more blasted as the night goes on.

It is a story about personal freedom and the ability to let go and let stuff happen without worrying about the consequences. Jeff's buddies Miller (played by Miles Teller) and Casey (played by Skylar Austin) try their best to keep their buddy Jeff out of harm's way, but his outrageous drunken behavior prevents them from being very effective. The boys raid a sorority house and get expelled. Jeff runs around half-naked out of his mind. His encounter with the police while he stands on top of a car shouting at the top of his lungs in the middle of the night is hilarious.
Even though his buddies toss him out a window to land on the roof of a car two stories below to escape, nobody really seems to get hurt. Jeff survives the toss because he is completely passed out. College students in this movie go way out of control in ways that are really hilarious.
Best part of story, including ending:
Getting blasted drunk has a positive effect on the future lives of the characters.
Best scene in story:
When the cops see Jeff half-naked on top of a car they ask him to "Get down!" and Jeff proceeds to dance in his best "get-down" fashion. Anyone will laugh at this.
Opinion about the main character:
Getting super drunk on your 21st birthday is a rite of passage.
