High school best buddies are facing separation anxiety as they prepare to go off to college. While attempting to score alcohol for a party with help from their fake ID-toting friend, "McLovin", the guys' evening takes a turn into chaotic territory.
When superbad came out i thought it was another movie like american pie, but worse. Now that im older, i can appreciate the adult comedy that was put into this film. It really does put a perspective on the teenage mindset and these thing do happen. watch the movie and enjoy.
Plot : Three teenagers about to graduate from high school try to have an amazing night and try to figure out their futures.
Story : How you grow to love the characters over the course of the movie is one of the films best aspects. It's story revolves around five characters Seth (Jonah Hill) and Evan (Micheal Cera) as they try to get alchohal for a party they are invited to by girls they really like. Fogell - a friend of Seth and Evan who hangs out with some cops after he gets robbed while trying to buy alchohal with a fake ID , and then there are the cops Slater (Bill Hader) and Micheals (Seth Rogen) who just do outragous stuff for tons of laughs.
Humor : There are a lot more laugh out loud moments in here than subtle funny moments like Knocked Up - so if you were looking for an outragous comedy this year : you've found it.
Visuals : The movie also takes on a day to night cycle , since the whole thing takes place in one day : which really makes it that much better. Also , there are some other great visual moments for the movie.
Sypnosis : Hillarious antics with a big heart , you'll be hard pressed not to love it.
Another go see! After you pay for "Shoot 'Em Up", sneak into or pay to see "Superbad". If not for "Knocked Up", this would be the funniest movie of the year. Judd Apatow, who brought us "Knocked Up" is responsible for this comedy soon to be deemed a classic. I hate most teen-based comedies because they are not accurate or relatable. I found I could relate with "Superbad". Detractors of this film have complained about how the characters are so vulgar, but this is how teenage boys talk. This isn't "Leave it to Beaver"! Just like "Shoot "Em Up", turn off your moral compass and just watch it for what it is. Easily, one of the top ten of 2007.
After seeing a lot of reviews about this movie, I have to say I went in with expectations higher than they probably should have been. However, Superbad came extremely close to living up to it's reputation. The humor is crude, which I happen to enjoy, but if it's not your thing you might want to stay away. If you enjoyed Knocked Up, you'll like this. I also have to say that for a movie in which everything happens in one night, it moves pretty smoothly and doesn't make you feel like you're watching the longest night of your life. All in All--4 stars!
