Superbad set the bar for the new teenage comedies. Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, producer and star of Knocked Up, bring fans this comical masterpiece. Superbad opens up with the typical high school scenario. School is about to let out and everyone is preparing for college. The not so cool kids Jonah Hill who plays Seth and Michael Cera as Evan are best-friends dealing with being on the outside of the high school crowds, as well as dealing with the separation as they will be continuing onto separate schools next year.

After trying to impress Jules (Emma Stone) Seth offers to pick up alcohol for a party she is having, in hopes that he will get laid prior to graduating. Evan being much more reserved than Seth, invites Becca (Martha MacIsaac), his secret love to the party. They enlist their friend Fogell, a.k.a. McLovin to get the booze for the evening using his fake id. Little to their knowledge there scheme of getting the alcohol is far from over. As the plans for the party go awry Seth and Evan must find an alternate way of supplying the booze. The two continue on in hopes of making it to the party to be with the girls they want to get it on with. While Seth and Evan continue on the liqueur chase, we are given a hilarious view of McLovin. The scene stealing parts go to the scenes with Seth Rogen and Bill Hader who portray two officers who attain McLovin for the evening. These are not your typical officers and I found my side hurting from laughing throughout all of their scenes.

Superbad is the American Pie for this century. Humor was a constant in this film and some skits were a little risqué making for an R rating. Casting as usual for these films was great, everyone meshed well together. The writers hit the nail on the head with this marvelous storyline. Making for a perfect showing before starting college and returning to school. On the next hot summer day, take a break into the cool theatre to catch this great flick. 3.5 out of 4 stars!!
