Greg Mottola (2007)

15 Certificate


Our Score
This post-American Pie teen movie serves up all the essential elements of the genre - the high-school boys desperate to get laid; the embarrassing disasters that befall them on the way; boozy parties and unimpressed girls, etc - but does it with a scabrous and intelligent wit. Seth (Jonah Hill) and Eric (Michael Cera, from TV's Arrested Development) are high schoolers who plan to provide booze for a party and thus ensure the gratitude (and sexual favours) of its female attendees. Sadly, an idiot friend going by the fake-ID pseudonym of "McLovin" and two utterly corrupt and drunken cops are among the characters that foil their plans. Superbad stands out from the standard teen-movie crowd with its slacker dialogue, universally funny performances and an unexpected sweetness in the friendship between the sex-crazed Seth and the slightly more diffident Eric. For those with a high tolerance for exuberant crudity, belly laughs are guaranteed.


Two teenage friends are on the brink of going to different colleges, so decide to mark the event by going to a party where they hope to lose their virginity. However, they have promised to supply the booze for the event, a task that proves much harder than expected because they are under age. Unfortunately, when a friend steps in to help, the situation gets even worse. Comedy, starring Jonah Hill, Michael Cera and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.
