“Superbad” stars Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, and co-stars Seth Rogan and Bill Hader. This raunchy comedy is directed by Greg Mottella and is produced by the legendary Judd Apatow.
Seth (Jonah Hill) and Evan (Michael Cera) are best friends who get lucky enough to be invited to a party. The only problem is that they promised to bring alcohol. With the help of their friend Fogell (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), and his fake ID. Seth is determined to provide alcohol for Jules’ party because he believes that the only way he can have sex is if she is drunk. Everything they plan goes wrong once Fogell, also known as McLovin, gets caught up with a couple of slacker cops who are impressed with his taste for alcohol and his aptitude to take a punch.
This may all sound very funny, especially after all of the praise that it is getting. The truth is that the movie goes overboard with the foul language and potty humor. A very unpleasant film. Between the overlong penis/lunch box joke and the not so funny references to vaginas, this film was extremely offensive at times. It may work for some, but for me it was just plain vulgar and rude. Crude and discourteous in the most perverted way. Just one long dirty joke. Not funny.
I had high expectations for this film, thanks to the hilarious trailer and the remarkable reviews it was receiving. This is one of the most overrated comedies since “Borat”. The distasteful lowbrow humor is present constantly throughout the film, proving the immaturity of the writers. It’s sad how people can think that this is actually funny. One of the years worst films from my point of view and I know almost everyone will disagree with me here.
Angry is how I felt while watching this movie. A dirty and disgusting look at this generation of teens. I have never seen a movie with such foul language that proves how low standard our society is. Goes overboard with the language and sexual references to the male and female genitals. The title fits the film perfectly. If you really enjoy some of the foulest and most perverted films, then I think Superbad will be your movie of the year.
Let me guess, you enjoy such teen-comedies as American Pie, Road Trip, and John Tucker Must Die. This film is everything those films want to be and much, much more.
No, I don’t like those comedies as much as Dazed and Confused and Fast Times At Ridgemont High. Those flims are everything Superbad wanted to be and much, much more.
