    Synopsis


    Superbad
    Operating under the assumption that by procuring alcohol for an upcoming party they will finally be able to break their longstanding losing streak with the fairer sex, socially inept high school seniors Evan (Michael Cera) and Seth (Jonah Hill) set out to secure the adult beverages that could get them off of the geek list before they even attend college orientation. Evan is a bright young student whose outward sweetness belies his suffocating fear of heading off to college without his lifelong best friend Seth -- a hormone-driven mischief-maker who wasn't accepted to the same school as Evan. But Evan and Seth both know that college is a place of personal reinvention, and that if they are able to make that first leap together they will have forged a bond powerful enough to last a lifetime. Meanwhile, Evan and Seth's friend Fogell (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) acquires a hastily rendered fake I.D. that instantly endears him to a pair of truly irresponsible cops (Bill Hader and Seth Rogen). Penned by co-star Rogen in collaboration with former Da Ali G Show co-writer Evan Goldberg, the semi-autobiographical SuperBad was produced by Judd Apatow and directed by Greg Mottola -- who previously helmed episodes of Undeclared and Arrested Development. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      A hilarious comedy about frienship

      Posted

      Superbad is an interesting type of romantic comedy: it centers less on the boys' attempts to get with the girls they like than on their close friendship. Thus, it becomes a sort of genre of its own: the "bro"mance. The story revolves around Evan and Seth, two high school seniors who are going to different schools next year and are getting ready for their last chance to get girlfriends before college. Even, the skinny quieter kid likes Becca, who is a sweet girl in some of his classes, and Seth, an overweight loudmouth, likes Jules, who he has known for a while and who is in his Home Economics class. They find their chance when their geeky friend Fogell gets a fake ID. THey off-handedly tell Jules about it, and she asks Seth if he could be the alcohol provider for a party she's hosting. Seth sees this as his chance to score with Jules, and Evan hopes to do likewise with Becca at the party. Thus begins a veritable journey to get liquor and bring it to the party before it's too late. This is a very funny film, peppered with highly quotable lines (none of which are appropriate for this review) and amusing characters. Fogell in particular is very funny, with his fake ID declaring his name to be "McLovin" and the series of misadventures he gets into with a pair of goofy cops who think he's 25. What makes this film so winning is the fact that the friends stand by each other through thick and thin, and by the end of the night they've really learned something about themselves and their friendship. This is a really fun movie, and if you have yet to see it I recommend that you pick it up.

      Best Teen Movie!

      Superbad is a teen movie. It also will draw comparisons to American Pie, in it's "losers try to get laid" themes, and occasional gross-out comedy. But the comparison is unfair - Superbad is a funnier, more subversive and more importantly genuine movie than American Pie or any of it's awful sequels were. The three central characters have a believable, likable relationship, that the film takes time to establish. Cera, Hill (who deserves special praise, for turning what could have been a really unlikeable character into a sweet, if loud-mouthed and crass, teenager) and Mintz-Plasse bounce of each other perfectly. The movie creates some funny situations, and more importantly, hilarious dialogue throughout. 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's sweet, it's funny as hell, and it's established a load of new talent.

      The 40-Year-Old Virgin Was WAY Better

      "Iconic Comedy...a true classic of its times..." Umm, ok? While SuperBad doesn't TOTALLY live up to its name, its not too far off by my standards. As one who usually enjoys immature/dumb comedy, this movie failed to really impress me (and I liked Napolean Dynamite!). Don't get me wrong- there's more than a few laughs to be had here, but unfortunately they seem to come too few between scenes of over-exaggeration mixed with a little bit of pathetic. Hill in particular seems to be trying too hard to pull off his character trying too hard the whole time, which seems to do little more than detract from the story rather than pull you into it. In complete contrast is Mintz-Plasse, who seems to do nothing but snivel convincingly as he pulls off one hijink after another with cops who look like they'd feel right at home in Super Troopers! All-in-all, I'd say its good for a rental, but even that's a little iffy to me. Just my opinion though- yours may be different!

      who knew that this movie would pave the way for movies to go even further then this one ever imagined. the movie is really interesting being that the kids in the movie are trying to have best end of high school exsperence possible but doing that is alot harder then they exspected. the start of the movie when they need to get boose and that plan is foiled when they get a bad fake id, then getting side tracked on the way to the party which in turn lands them with some cops who are anything but professional. finally they get the party and have a great time to discover like most of us after high school people go their own ways and new live and relationships are created.

      I went to BestBuy and purchased above noted Blu-ray disc for personal entertainment purposes. The movie Superbad is an excellent movie for a variety of reasons. The movie is hilarious, the plot flows well, the characters are played well, there are really good actors in this movie, and the movie is very original and stands out from other comedies. My only regret about this movie is that I had not watched it sooner. I would highly recommend this movie to a friend however, this is not a movie you would want to watch with your Mom and Dad. That might be a little awkward. With all in consideration, Superbad is a well done hilarious movie.

      Hilarious movie. The character dialogue is extremely funny. R rated so definately not for the kids. I was more impressed by the audio of the film than the picture. The picture quality was only slightly better than the regular dvd on an upconverting dvd player. The audio was great. Anytime a song came on in the movie, my speakers really handled it nicely, sounded like I was right in the movie. Being that this is blu-ray, I would only reccomend the blu-ray version if you have a receiver that can decode HD audio formats, otherwise I would stick with the regular dvd, as again the picture quality was only slightly better than a good upconverting dvd player.

      This movie was hilarious. Although I am a 34-year-old mom of four, I could still see the humor and identify with the characters. I am not usually a big fan of slap-stick comedy myself, and I HATED all of the Austin Powers movies, but this one really shines through. While I have been somewhat disappointed with movies that have come out in th theater lately, I absolutely love this one and was pleasantly surprized at how much I liked it. The characters are funny, witty, amusing and likeable, as well as believeable. Go ahead and purchase this film - it's worth it, and you'll definitely watch it again!

      SUPER FUNNY!

      This is one of my favorite comedies. It falls under the American Pie, Old School, and Talladega Nights type of humor. This is a vulgar movie with choice words, so definitely do not watch with younger children. It is a fairly original story with all the wonderous twists and turns you can expect from a comedy. I don't think I stopped laughing once in the movie. If you didn't enjoy the movies I compare it to it may not be for you, but it is worth renting if you are unsure. If you like any of those goofy, off the wall comedies then this will make you die laughing. AWESOME MOVIE!
