Superbad (2007)


Movie Review

Directed by: Greg Mottola

Starring: Michael Cera, Jonah Hill, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse

Evan (Michael Cera) and Seth (Jonah Hill) are best friends who are about to hit a fork in the road of life.  They’re graduating from high school in a couple of weeks and are headed to two different universities.  Somehow, these usually unpopular boys get lucky enough to get invited to a big party by two hot girls.  However, there is a catch.  They agree to supply the alcohol.  Along with their friend Fogell (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), they intend to get fake IDs to buy the liquor for the party.  However, the night gets complicated when Fogell can’t purchase the alcohol after running into two cops in the liquor store.  Superbad is an outrageous comedy in the long American tradition of crude, R-rated slapstick comedies.  It is one truly hilarious film.  I literally laughed until I cried when I watched it.  While it is arguably one of the funniest films I’ve ever seen, it is undoubtedly one of the rudest and crudest films to ever grace the big screen.  True to the name, the film escalates the crudeness and vulgarity of the jokes (especially with references to genitalia).
