SuperBadDirector: Greg Mottola
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.

This was one of those movies, you always heard about but never saw. Finally saw this and not only was a little weird and awkward but it was also hilarious.
i saw the preview of Superbad on Netflix and i think it's the best trailer i saw.
I am not always a fan of the gross-me out "guy" movies, but I was pleasantly surprised by this one. Don't get me wrong it is definitly gross and a guy movie but it was also hilarious. I laughed so hard I cried. There are so many great catch phrases that are going to come out of this movie. If you are looking for something fun with absolutely no thinking required watch this movie.
I don't know if I'd recommend buying it, but it's a fun rental. The cops in the movie steal the show and had me rolling. It's not as good as some other teen movies but it's decent.
I saw American Graffiti and Animal House, therefore I saw Superbad. Think about it: a bunch of kids right before they head off to college and they want to have fun with the cops, get drunk and get layed. Sound familiar? It should this was all done in the two movies mentioned above, but they were a lot funnier. Jonah Hill's character got quite annoying with his overacting and the F-word every other sentence. And the constant talk of D@#*s and P@#%*&s, I found myself thinking, can't these guys come up with anything original? I graduated from high school almost a year ago and I didn't spend my last night yelling the F-word at my friends and trying to get layed and wasted. When will we see the emergence of great comedy writers in Hollywood again?
You can tell your not a teenager any more, when you stop laughing at pointless crude comedy! There was way too much hype over this dud. Dont waste your money
Sure, Superbad isn't high comedy. It is, however, fairly smart comedy, if often crude. For what it is--a mainstream comedy--it is quite funny.
One of the funniest movies of last year. If you don't find this funny, move back to Communist Russia and stay out of America.
Judd Apatow and his dream team hit big again with the funniest movie of 2007. Jonah Hill's crude Seth is balanced out by nice guy Evan played by Michael Cera. This movie is very in your face and all too familiar for those who went to high school in the mid-90s to modern teens of today. It presents a very real approach to how teens are and how they think. Don't tell me every other teen doesn't talk like a sailor every so often, because we do. Teens aren't as confused and complex as some movies like American Graffiti and Fast Times make them out to be. We are very straightforward and know what we want, just like Seth and Evan.
This movie is one of the funniest movies of recent. A story of teenage angst involving three graduating high school friends on the last day of school. An hilarious quest in acquiring liquor to aid losing their virginity.
I laughed pretty much from the beginning to the end. Jonah Hill's performance was excellent, this movie reminds me a lot of the delimmas facing teenagers on their way out of high school. If you ask me there should be a part 2 when they actually are in college.
I only first watched this movie about 4 or 5 months ago, and was kind of in & out of it, but then I decided I would go ahead and buy it and watched it a 2nd time. I laughed through the whole entire movie. Some of it reminded me of myself and some friends shortly after we had graduated high school...trying to score alcohol and hook up with women. More than that though, the exploits of the aptly named McLovin with these 2 police officers were without a doubt my favorite parts of the movie. Funny stuff! I won't say much else about it, but if you like party movies, then definitely pick this movie up and give it a watch. You'll laugh, I garuntee it!
I finally sat down and watched this movie....and boy am I glad I did! It really is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. Jonah Hill is hilarious in this movie and I couldn't stop laughing even after the movie was over. My boyfriend and I give this movie two thumbs super way up! I do recommend that everyone watch it first on the original version before they watch the unrated...for some reason, the original is just slightly better in our opinions. A must see for EVERYONE! You will love it!
I remember watching it for the first time, and I was excited to watch it because all my friends said it was hilarious. I was ready to laugh my butt off. Right when the movie started, the first fifteen minutes, I was not impressed. I personally thought the movie was horrible and felt that it didn't deserve the credit so many people are giving it. The movie was filled with swearing that was coming out of the main character's mouth that felt like every five seconds. There were a tone of sex jokes, I mean yeah sex jokes are funny, but this movie over used them and it got old really quick. I know most movies have small plots that turn into a giant story, but this one just sounded stupid. I guess I don't have the same humor as most people, but I just didn't find the bases of the movie funny at all. So many reviews said that the movie was hilarious. Reviews mentioned it was so funny, you'll definitely laugh! They forgot to mention that you'll drop your IQ as well. I'm so terribly sorry that I'm making fun of a movie almost all of America fell in love with, (sarcasm) but it just doesn't seem that clever. After the movie was over, I really felt like I wasted an hour and a half of my life just staring at the T.V. screen watching this really random, pointless movie. Superbad had my sitting there not gaining anything worthwhile, or even entertaining. I feel that someone who absolutely loves this movie will definitely want to come and either; yell at me to say this movie was amazing according to x, y, z, or they'll just call me stupid for saying all these things and just say it's a funny movie why you are making fun of it. Honestly, your opinion is your opinion and mine is mine, I say just respect it. Many people have made fun of things I love and I just sit there listening to why they don't like it, but that doesn't make me want to stop liking what I like. I say if you really looking for a movie to just waste some time and laugh with friends, then yeah, watch Superbad. But if you're looking for a good movie to watch, I suggest you don't rent or buy Superbad.
