Here’s an older flick that I just watched again. We meet Seth and Evan (Jonah Hill and Michael Cera). They are two best friends who aren’t considered to be the cool kids in high school. The two of them are completely inseparable. Seth and Evan just want a chance to hook up with some girls and be considered as “popular.” After an invitation to what is supposed to be an awesome party, Seth and Evan are thrilled. All Seth and Evan want to do is lose their virginity and start having an awesome sex life because they are going to college soon. They have to try to score enough alcohol for the party and to get the two girls they like drunk. They really need the help from their nerdy friend, Fogell (Christopher-Mintz Plasse) aka McLovin. Fogell decided to get a fake ID that will get them all the alcohol they want. After the trip to the alcohol store goes wrong, Fogell is left hanging out with two police officers (Seth Rogen and Bill Hader). This leaves Seth and Evan out of luck to get alcohol for the party. Will Seth and Evan be able to get the alcohol and the girls?
First off, Superbad is arguably one of the funniest movies in the last ten years. It is downright filthy and you can’t get enough of it. The mouth’s on the two of these guys is ridiculous. All three of them were absolutely hysterical in this film. This is a movie with so much vulgarity and you don’t mind it because of how funny it is. The cleverly crude humor that this movie has is just unbelievable. You never stop laughing at all the things that those three have to say. This movie was made strictly for laugh’s and it wins at that. If you just want to sit down and laugh your ass off, this is definitely the movie that you will want to watch.
The casting in this was absolutely phenomenal. This movie convinced me of how funny Jonah Hill was. I thought he gave us his funniest performance out of all his roles in this. Seth, Evan, and Fogell were hysteria, but the funniest moments came when Seth Rogen and Bill Hader show up. They left me laughing for hours to come. They have some of the best quotable lines from the movie. They were absolutely the perfect people to cast in this film. The whole concept of the two of them just hanging out with McLovin is hysterical. I loved these two together and never fail to laugh at every scene that we see with them.
The truth about Superbad is that it’s not only funny, but it tell the true story of the late teen mindset. That is something that is awesome about this film. They really hit the nail on the head with that. It is simply just something that many teenagers can relate to. The story becomes very believable. The creators did so well at capturing the awkwardness of the teenage years. This is definitely a movie that you can not help but laugh at every time you watch it and it demands multiple viewings, just not with your mother. It’s just simply a hilarious film with a great storyline.
Overall, Superbad is hilarious, dirty, sweet, and a downright comedic masterpiece. If you did not see this movie, move it to number one on your watchlist. A comedy that everyone can enjoy!
