Superbad

High-school seniors Seth (Jonah Hill) and Evan (Michael Cera) have high hopes for a graduation party: The co-dependent teens plan to score booze and babes so they can become part of the in-crowd, but separation anxiety and two bored police officers (Bill Hader, Seth Rogen) complicate the pair's self-proclaimed mission.

C'mon - where's the humor

I am a fan of Arrested Development. This is a far cry from AD. The premise for this movie is so common - highschool kids obsessed with liquor, losers and leg; getting busted by cops, spit on by a bully, a fat kid, a nerd (who gets the girl!) - that it would take a herculean feat to rescue it from mediocrity. Unfortunately, it falls way flat of inspired comedy. Awkward does not equate to funny. Yes, I laughed some, I grinned, but I also found myself checking my email on my PDA, and my thoughts drifting outside the walls of an empty theater wondering where the radiologist is - this movie needs a barium enema, CAT-scan and EKG - in search of a of a funny bone.

Awesomely Uncomfortable

I have always been a Michael Cera fan (mostly because I am an Arrested Development addict) and he did not disappoint in Super Bad. He is so amazingly awkward on screen I honestly don't know if he is that strange, or if he is just great at playing the deadpan dork.

The movie is the standard "high school kid wanted to hook up with a girl at a party before heading off to college" movie much in the same fashion as Can't Hardly Wait, and American Pie, but with an uncomfortable twist that will leave you unsure if you really want to continue watching, or get up to end the pain. The pain is worth it though, and the movie is great, even if you only stay till the end to view the wonderful artwork during the credits.

I love you, man!

This movie is built on the classic underdog formula. Painfully awkward teenagers embark on an epic quest to be cool for a night and, of course, hilarity ensues.

Situational humor and one-liners keep you laughing throughout the entire movie. But it's the comradery and humanity of the characters that make this movie really good.

OH NO! its the cops

If you liked "The 40 year old Virgin" and "Knocked Up" then you are sure to like the newest movie by Greg Mottola, Superbad.

If you were like these guys in high school this movie just might bring back some fond memories (and maybe some not so fond ones also)but anyone can understand what this kids are going through.

parties,drinking, and sex, what most teenagers think about, it what this movie is all about.

Super-rad!

This movie has it all! Drinking, fighting, awkward sex, dramatic plot twists, and - my personal favorite - bored cops! If you liked Super Troopers, this movie is worth it just to see what happens to McLovin.

Michael Cera draws heavily on his experience in the utterly amazing TV series Arrested Development, and it is awesome. The writing is awesome. So is the soundtrack. Heavy on the funk, which is awesome. Basically, if you like awesome, watch this movie.

(Because it's awesome)

McLovin...

I was actually suprized by this movie. Wasn't really in the mood to see it; I was under the impression that my group of friends were going to see another movie.

However...

I was laughing with relief the entire time. The best way to wrap up this movie... Think of all the cool stuff you did your Senior year in high school. Now think of all the rediculous stuff you though would be awesome to do, but knew it was unreasonable. And mix in all the absolutely unbelievable ideas of getting away with super pranks and ideas...

Now watch the movie and think abotu all those times you "regretted" NOT doing something, and you can sit there and as the story unfolds you can rest assured you did the right thing in YOUR life by not being impulsive.

The movie as a whole is realistic in the way the characters interact and moralize situations. Yeah we all talk about doing stuff, but when the time comes, how would you really act? I believed all the characters, and thier problems and confusions.

Go see it. If anything just to remember how far you've personally come as a human being... (That statement can go both ways.)
