Movie Review: “Superbad”

large_superbadThis is one of the raunchiest but funniest movies I have ever seen and I recommend it to anyone who can handle a comedy with a lot sex jokes, swearing and drinking. Seth Rogen and Bill Hader were histerical in this movie just like they are in everything else they do. I would not be surprised if this movie ranks in your top 5 movies (if you enjoy that type of comedy).

The film opened at #1 at the U.S. box office, earning $33 million in its opening weekend in 2,948 theaters for an average of $11,211 per theater. As of August 23, the film has grossed $47,105,741 domestically. It was written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg when they were in high school. It was produced by Judd Apatow, previously known for directing The 40 Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up.

The film follows high school seniors Evan and Seth, two socially-awkward best friends who attempt to lose their virginity before the end of the school year. When opportunity presents itself through a scheduled keg party, the two friends attempt to illegally obtain enough alcohol to satisfy the party-goers. Meanwhile, geeky teenager Fogell spends the night with two reckless police officers, convincing them he is a twenty-five year old Hawaiian organ donor named McLovin.

The movie stars
Jonah Hill (Knocked Up),
Michael Cera,
Bill Hader (SNL),
Seth Rogen (knocked up and 40 year old virgin),
Emma Stone (Drive – TV Show),
Martha MacIsaac (I Do, They Don’t – TV movie)
and introducing Christopher Mintz-Plasse as Fogell/McLovin. Chris was amazing in his first time on screen and really fit the part of a geek but progressed into a bad ass kid that people started to like.

This movie has now surpassed many of my favorite comedic movies that I have ever seen. It ranks right up there with Dumb & Dumber, Super Troopers and Harold & Kumar. However, this movie was a different type of funny than the other movies. The others were so funny because of the randomness but the writing in Superbad was classic.

    What I love about this movie the most is that while being crude, the movie manages to retain its innocence within its characters. Something I feel American Pie doesn’t do. Writers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, as well as producer Judd Apatow, do a great job of telling a story.

    I also agree that Bill Hader and Seth Rogen are awesome. I actually do a website on Bill Hader, check it out:
