Seth and Evan are best friends, inseparable, navigating the last weeks of high school. Usually shunned by the popular kids, Seth and Evan luck into an invitation to a party, and spend a long day, with the help of their nerdy friend Fogell, trying to score enough alcohol to lubricate the party and inebriate two girls, Jules and Becca, so they can kick-start their sex lives and go off to college with a summer full of experience and new skills. Their quest is complicated by Fogell's falling in with two inept cops who both slow and assist the plan. If they do get the liquor to the party, what then? Is sex the only rite of passage at hand?

Did You Know?


The pivotal penis drawings were a "bone" of contention with the MPAA, particularly the scene with young Becca holding an image of one of them. Producer Judd Apatow said it was the subject of much legal wrangling, including how erect they could be, if veins could be shown, etc. However, the actress playing young Becca, Laura Marano, had a different picture to hold before they cut to the actual drawing. You can even see from the reverse that the drawing she holds appears completely different. See more »


When Evan and Seth are first approaching the school the sign says there are 2 weeks left of school for seniors. When confronting the Home Ec teacher in the beginning, Seth claims there are 3 weeks left in the school year. Later in shop class, Evan says it's the last 2 weeks of school. See more »

Best Teen Comedy Since the Original "American Pie!"
17 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, I just got back from the Superbad screening tonight (thanks to the folks at MySpace) and I must say that this is a very special teen movie. It has that same element of transporting you back to your high school days that the original American Pie had. Michael Cera does great as the awkward teenage kid, basically a reprise of his role as George Michael on Arrested Development. But it is Jonah Hill who absolutely rules this movie! He had me laughing from the beginning to the end. His "silly fat-kid" character is the only one in the history of movies that shows what it truly feels like to be the funny fat kid in high school. I should know, I was one! Gosh, I just can't believe how well he portrayed the unmitigated hell that was P.E.! Emma Stone and Martha Maclsaac also give very realistic depictions of teenage girls. None of that fake, over the top nonsense. The most over-the-top character was "McLovin" himself, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, who did a great job of having us laugh with him as much as we did at him.

All in all, I think that everyone should be sure to watch this movie when it comes later this summer.
