It is one of the funniest movies I have seen in a long time. What else could you ask for? MovieAddict 19 April Superbad is a shamelessly raunchy R-rated comedy with more four letter words than a Webster dictionary. The performances are fun, the writing is polished and witty, and the antics never seem to go over the top. There were so many mind bogglingly hilarious one-liners in the film that I will need to watch it again to see which ones I missed while I was laughing. Gosh, I just can’t believe how well he portrayed the unmitigated hell that was P.
It doesn’t feel annoying or stupid either, which is actually quite impressive. Bill Hader and Set Rogen were just top notch. Having said that, a few of the situations do seem unrealistic, but the message of friendship and dealing with life when it doesn’t seem to be going as planned is universally understood by all males and surprisingly a lot of cool chicks who can handle the edgy jokes in between. Jonah Hill and Michael Cera have that best friend chemistry that this movie required as well as being dead on with their jokes. Yes, the story and the stereotype characters are entertaining on a low level, but there should be more than the average plot of “American Pie” to fill 90 minutes and more. He’s drawing a penis at the age of eleven? But “Superbad” only repeats elements of earlier puberty comedies without vary the gags oder the story. It doesn’t mock its characters or their predicaments but casts a knowing eye on the high school experience.
The jokes are crude, but dead on, and unlike recent movies with a similar style, like “Clerks 2,” the plot moves on without any real downtime you know, where the plot slows the progress of humor and you find yourself checking your watch.

THE 41 Year Old Virgin Who Knocked Up Sarah Marshall and Felt Superbad About It
I gave more effort into trying than I’ve ever attempted. When I read subtihrat summary, I was a bit skeptical. It’s too bad the women roles in the film feel a tad underwritten.
I recommend this movie to anyone who hasn’t seen it, as well as those who have If you don’t like constant cussing or sex jokes, then stay away. I got to see an advanced screening the other night, complete with an interview with the cast.
Go see this movie!!! I should know, I was one! The characters are likable and charismatic, and lack the oh-so-typical nihilistic, “I just want to have sex with anything that moves” mentality. There were so many mind bogglingly hilarious one-liners in the film that I will need to watch it again to see which ones I missed while I was laughing.
The most over-the-top character was “McLovin” himself, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, who did a great job of having us laugh with him as much as we did at him. At one point, this film rated higher than Scarface. Maybe that could be why this feels so sentimental and close to home. I am happy to say this movie was wonderful.
Michael Cera is the kind of, I suppose, innocent-type guy who is both driven by hormones yet conflicted by almost inhuman genuine-ness and politeness. The performances are fun, the writing is polished and witty, and the antics never seem to go over the top. There were some “shock value” moments, but very well done to tip the scale more to funny than to gross.
The writing is much smarter and funnier and the acting is superb. An error has occured. It has wit, and puts it to fiilm. The cops are still a WTF!?!? But what truly makes the film work is its level of realism and intelligence.
Aside from one comedic misfire – an overly long and poorly judged gross out sight gag involving a pair of trousers and a dance – Superbad had me laughing constantly. It has that same element of transporting vilm back to your high school days that the original American Pie had. But it was Bill Hader and Seth Rogen who stole the show for me as the clueless cops. Quite disgusting, and it’s incomprehensible to me that anyone over the age of ten could fipm this plot less mess amusing or worthwhile.
Funny films, very exaggerated but realistically acted, pretty girls and allows supebrad viewer to laugh at both adults and youngsters.
Superbad – The Greatest Teen Comedy of All Time | Movies | Pinterest | Movies, Comedy and Superbad
The farcical events could easily be real, and are probably based on true events. Eubtitrat no means is Superbad a bad comedy. Here, the characters in Superbad just want to fit in and achieve the girl of their dreams, but shallow stereotypes and one stutter too many prevent this goal from happening.
I did understand every joke, but it seemed like it tried too hard to sell it to me. I’ve heard tag lines that this movie will be “this generation’s Porky’s.
I had high hopes for this movie.
Can be watched over and over again. Michael Cera does great as the awkward teenage kid, basically a reprise of his role as George Michael on Arrested Development.

It subtltrat its completely gross-out teen moments, but those were grounded by its hilariously absurd and witty also gross conversations. Having said that, a few of the situations do seem unrealistic, but the message of friendship and dealing with life when it doesn’t seem to be going as planned is universally understood by all males and surprisingly a lot of cool chicks who can handle the edgy jokes in between. They might lighten up a bit!
StevePulaski 11 April He is the worst actor ever. He had me laughing from the beginning to the end.
Anyone who doesn’t fall half in love with this film cannot be human. Okay, so today i went to an advanced screening of this movie.
