Outstanding !! Yet Another Newly Inducted Classic !!
'Superbad' is "Supergood." We have been graced with another Judd Apatow-produced raunchfest; with the truth of the way-above-average teen comedy far from disappointing. A movie arriving on a tide of comic enthusiasm.
'Superbad', which was directed from Greg Mottola (The Daytrippers) from a loquacious script by 'Knocked Up' star Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, has inumerably funny moments; so many in it's first acts alone. 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.
The film has a dearth of truly original ideas. It's a picture that seems overly in love with every last one of its comic bits; whether they're amusing or merely nostalgic. Rogen and Goldberg first wrote the script when they were teens and it's clearly jammed with autobiography (they even name their leads Seth and Evan), and it shows that Mottola and Apatow did quite the "extra" cherry-picking to keep things moving swiftly as they always do.
For Apatow, that's no great surprise, considering his last two efforts (as Writer/Director), 'Knocked Up' and 'The 40-Year-Old Virgin', brought a package filled with big-huge, audience-friendly laughs.
While it's being touted as this decade's 'American Pie', 'Superbad' holds a one-day setting; making it more like a genitalia-obsessed 'American Graffiti', spiked with a boatload of cheerfully vulgar chatter. The movie follows a pair of childhood buds — the chubby, volatile, sex-crazed Seth (Jonah Hill) and the gentle, Dartmouth-bound Evan (Arrested Development's Michael Cera)— on a knuckle-headed mission to lose their virginity before senior year ends.
Along with a third pal, the intrepid nerd Fogell (scene-stealer Christopher Mintz-Plasse), these high schoolers muddle their way through a wild and unique series of obstacles en route to a cool kids' party where said "virginity loss" seems like a sure thing.
On this wacky journey, parts of Fogell's nerve-wracking assignments are to score the evening's booze which provides some major guffaws. The film gets so much mileage from this goofball's fake ID, which identifies him as a 25-year-old Hawaiian resident named "McLovin", it's practically its own character.
Dually successful are the pair of assinine Cops; played by Rogen and SNL's Bill Hader, who endlessly intersect with Fogell. These so-called Law Enforcers are so irresponsible you hope it'll turn out they're not Cops after all.
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.
Guaranteed Success !!!! Extremely Fun !!!!Read full review
