The latest film to carry the mantle of the "teen sex romp" and they do a pretty good job of it. Jonah Hill is great and it's clear to see why he has made his way up in the movie world. Also cops Seth Rogan and Bill Hader are very entertaining and when it comes to the ladies Mc Lovin' is the man!!! Great soundtrack also...
My 16 year old daughter thought that this was a really terrible, boring movie. There's really nothing funny in it at all. The one star is for Emma Stone.
Not quite what I was expecting, but in a good way. It was silly, full of sex jokes and "teen stuff", but the dynamic between two of the characters, best friends leaving home for college and NOT going together was very interesting. Worth seeing just for the final scene and the exchange of glances on the escalator.
this is funny. it was one problem after another.
If you like this crowd and think Jonah Hill constantly swearing and saying tasteless things about women is funny, you'll enjoy this. I largely didn't...however gave it one star for Michael Cera's character and the cops.
um good movie but boring .... nt realy funny
Typical teenage fare, however under the crass humour lies a story with a good heart.
Funnier than I expected. Michael Cera is good as usual. Pretty well written. The cops are the show stealers.
Nowhere near as funny as 40yo virgin
Superbad is just that...super B A D
I didnt even finish watching it.
Bloody hilarious! Best laugh I've had for a while :)
It was alright. I bit boring in places as it is a typical teen movie. A few funny areas.
This was Gorgeous! Obviously it came from teenage minds...but there is heart to it, loyalty, friendship and great humour in parts. McLovin is a legend! And the two leads have a great bond with their friendship which has obviously been lifelong.
Crass? Yes! But look a bit deeper...quite cute.
Some very broken moments. I loved it!
Pretty standard sort of film. I am sure that everyone knows what these kind of movies are like, will also enjoy this one. Nothing special but worth a look,
Watch it for what it is and enjoy the humour as it does it well!
this was an absoulute pisser of a movie...the best laugh i have had in a long time.... i highly recomend it ! does have crude humour but the boys will love it for sure A
Pretty funny, not hilarious though. Worth a watch if you want to sit though seeing a bunch of school kids who can drive trying to buy alcohol. Still can't believe that you must be 21 in the US to buy a beer but you can drive to school. Bet you can buy a gun though....
This is what teen movies should be!Funny, raw and shocking!
McLovin is one of the most BAD A$$ characters I've ever seen!LOL!
Pretty average geek college boy movie, with a couple of funny but crase moments. Not a chick flick, but has a good underlying message about teenagers being respectful to each other, and not falling for peer group pressures. Got a bit too stupid in parts... 2.5 stars for a laugh with the boys.
The worst movie ever made .mclovin as a character was not funny , the 2 cops stupid, the main characters have never made another movie and you can tell why . this movie got an 87% fail rating in rotten tomatoes web site , watch it and you will see why.
The name says it all. It is down there with the worst of the teen flix. If you are over 18 dont waste your time as it is aimed directly at the 16 and under market (which is ironic because it has an MA 15 rating). Built around the age old american teenagers cliched obsessions with getting shitfaced drunk, getting laid and shooting guns, there is not an original idea or line in the entire movie. Which I guess is an achievement of sorts. Its bound to be popular.
Great funny movie, but shitty ending. I wanted to know more about the characters but it just ended abruptly, what happened to Fogell aka McLovin? What happened to the stupid cops? Disappointing at the end
i think the reason for the mixed reviews is an age thing, anyone in their teens would find this funny, anyone with taste would not, sp perhaps it's the movie reviewing the viewer ?, ok it's crap don't waste the postage, if it's your cup of tea, make me one too i'll be watching something else in the bedroom
You pretty much know what you're in for when you watch any of the movies written by these guys and Superbad delivers as expected. Yeah, it's a crude premise but so much more funny and clever than other films in its genre, like your American Pies and so forth. There were laugh out loud moments and definately some cringe moments, but overall a lot of fun. I'd say, not as good as Knocked Up but better than 40 Year Old Virgin.
Without even looking, it will be a safe bet to assume there are a bunch of self righteous reviewers here panning the movie and simultaneously declaring they turned it off. That's fine they can go back to watching the delightful Jerry Lewis do his typewriter sketch on youtube, they're not these guys audience. If you have ever had true friends you can talk openly with, or had a night out that went wrong then you'll relate to the heart of this film.
I'm sorry to the other reviewers but god lighten up a little! This is one of the funniest movies ever made, I'm still laughing after seeing it at least 20 times and Mclovin' will go down as one of the best characters ever! It's a good piece of escapism and well worth getting.
funny for those who are crude at heart
Once you get past the first 1/2 hour or so, it definately gets better.
this movie is brilliant. anyone who disagrees is wrong
Really a younger persons movie but certainly funny. Completely ridiculous of course but if you can stop being a 'sensible' adult it's enjoyable - watch it with your kids and it will be funnier. . .
This movie is an embarrassment and it insults people, not really funny, perhaps more for those that don't really think would enjoy this movie.
"Superbad" it is....I watched it all hoping it would get better, but..........
Good movie and funny in some parts and also stupidly funny in some parts too.
I thought this was a great movie. Alot of laughs which is wat i needed at the time!
Hilarious! Loved every bit of this movie.
Feel in love with the characters..originally funny :)
This movie tries too hard to be in the same calibre as movies like 'American Pie' and is not nearly as funny. Does not live up to the hype but is slightly amusing at times.
Top of my list for funny flicks! Mclovin steals the show. I have watched this over and over again, and it never fails to make me PMSL!
More American Pie than Knocked Up. The scenes with the cops are probably the pick.
light and silly... perfect brain dead friday dvd material
I didn't laugh as much as expected but worth watching.
Worth a watch didn't live up to the trailer's that I had seen. wouldn't watch it again though
OK, some funny parts. Not in the same class as American Pie.
Only one funny scene in this 'comedy'.
McLovin should get his own movie. He's too good for this film.
Not good times.
It started off ok, but then really went downhill. I personally didn't find the cops who became quite central from the middle onwards, to not be funny at all. Very much a movie for teenage boys. I wouldn't watch it again.
found it boring turned off after first 10 mins
Title of the movie is very appropriate. Absolute crap!!
Pretty funny show. Not as good as Knocked Up but worth of spending a couple of hours watching.
there is a reason why this is called superbad...i couldn't stay in the room while this rubbish was on.
Loved it, very stupidly funny, it aint a thinkin movie!
It's pretty funny at times, but overall it's just another teenage movie about sex. It does have it's moments - the 'drawing kid' small tangent is pretty funny, I actually know someone who was like that during high school. So that was amusing.
Loved it thought it was very funny, wish cops were really like this but!
Really really funny movie worth watching
If you're in the mood to laugh, be shocked and have a great time.. watch this one!
TEENAGE DIRTBAG MOVIE! MY 14YR OLD LOVED IT. I DIDNT BOTHER.
Hilarious - loved it.. Could watch it agin
Hilarious..!! Loved this movie..!!
too boyish for me - well acted, pretty funny at times but over all just a movie about mens genatalia!!
I can see how it can appeal to the younger audience and how it can be very rudely funny - however I would be horrified if I found out my kids watched it and enjoyed it and then only displayed the bad behaviour that this movie depicts. It does have a point to it, with the 'happy' and almost 'moral' ending to it but I am not convinced that this will actually come across to the target audience. Maybe I am just becoming too much of an old fart...!
Didn't really find it very funny. Was a bit silly. Would be funnier for people who don't like witty, smart comedy.
Some funny scenes but not enough to balance the swearing and the dragged-on plot.
Worth Watching - Funny funny stuff.
Some good laughs in this film, but really you have seen it all before, no surprises but worth a look.
Has alot of funny parts but it dragged on abit. The stain on the pants thing came just in time!
There is one word & one word only that describes this movie & the title says it all.... "Superbad"
It tries to go beyond american pie, but is just lame & bad taste, the story line is boring as batsh#@t & to boot its overly long...
Apparently Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg started writing this film when they were thirteen years old... and it shows. Incredibly juvenile.
