Product Overview

From the guy who brought you Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin comes Superbad. Seth (Jonah Hill) and Evan (Michael Cera) want nothing more than to lose their virginity before they head off to college. To do that, though, they need to get liquor for the big party that night. With the help of their friend Fogell, a.k.a. McLovin (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), and his fake I.D., the three of them go on a hilarious chase for that elusive booze, dodging incompetent cops (Knocked Up's Seth Rogen and Saturday Night Live's Bill Hader), angry neighbors and jealous boyfriends. Hailed as an "iconic comedy...a true classic of its times" (Pete Hammond, Maxim), Superbad is "a laugh-out-loud masterpiece!"

Review I wanted to open this review by reporting that Superbad was "supergood." But, despite high hopes for this latest Judd Apatow-produced raunchfest, the truth is it's just "good," an assessment that may be okay for the average teen comedy, but disappointing for a movie arriving on such a tide of comic enthusiasm. Not that Superbad, which was directed from Greg Mottola (The Daytrippers) from a loquacious script by Knocked Up star Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, doesn't have its memorably funny moments--it has many, particularly in the first act. It's also blessed with a trio of superb comedic performances by its young leads that should secure them each long and healthy acting careers...On the flip side, as the adorable classmates who horndogs Seth, Evan, and "McLovin" each set their sights on, Emma Stone, Martha MacIsaac, and Aviva are ideal, with MacIsaac's drunken seduction of Evan a go-for-broke treat...At the film's core is a poignant message about teen male friendships that smartly balances the bawdy nuttiness that surrounds it. It's a testament to Hill and Cera's acting abilities that they pull off their squishy final moments together as nicely as they do. If they're not best friends in real life, you could've fooled me.

Review What if Quentin Tarantino collaborated with John Hughes on a teen comedy? Superbad is a decent approximation of what the result might be. As with Borat, there are no sacred cows here. The movie, produced by Judd Apatow, written by Seth Rogan & Evan Goldberg, and directed by Greg Mottola, pushes the genre's envelope a little farther than anything before it has done. It recalls American Pie but with less nudity (in fact, there's none to speak of) and dialogue that is more clever and more profane. The movie is frequently amusing and occasionally uproarious...If the movie has a failing, it's a tendency to be long-winded. This is the same issue that has plagued Judd Apatow's excellent directorial efforts, The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up. The denouement feels unnecessarily protracted and the number of scenes with the cops (some of the least comically successful material in the movie) could have been trimmed. Superbad is a very good little 95 minute movie that runs a little over 110 minutes...It takes a brave filmmaker to release a movie called Superbad. Fortunately for Mottola and friends, it's impossible to use the title to describe the quality.

Quotes
David Ansen, NewsWeek ..."Revenge of the Nerds" redux...
David Denby, The New Yorker An uproarious and touching picture.
David Edelstein, New York Magazine Might be the most provocative teen sex comedy ever made; it is certainly one of the most convulsively funny.
Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle For pure laughs, for the experience of just sitting in a chair and breaking up every minute or so, Superbad is 2007's most successful comedy.
Nathan Rabin, The Onion A.V. Club A funny, boozy, ramshackle party.
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone It helps that the fun doesn't stop. It helps even more that the pitch-perfect script doesn't step out of character for a joke.
Scott Foundas, The Village Voice ...achingly funny, brewed from the now-familiar Apatow house blend of go-for-broke slapstick and instantly quotable, potty-mouthed dialogue.
