How did critics react?

Superbad attained mostly good reviews but did pick up some less than appreciative comments along the way. On Rotten Tomatoes it has a very solid 88% approval rating and a critical consensus indicating it's a vulgar teen flick, but with genuine heart and wit.

Critics quotes:

"Supergood." - Total Film, 2007

"It's as if Mike Leigh decided to make a gross-out comedy." - BBCi film review, 2007

"Doesn't quite have the insight of a classic, but it'll have you smirking for weeks." - Matt Bochenski, 2007

"It's misogynistic, homophobic and only occasionally funny" - Phillip French, 2007

"Easily one of the funniest movies of the year." - Gary Thompson, 2007

"In spite of the film's startling deluge of dirty dialogue and sight gags, tender notes are struck." - Bangor Dailey News. 2007

"It super freaking rocks" - Kyle Smith, 2007

"Superbad is aptly named" - Mark Kermode, 2007

"Superbad" is a four-letter raunch-a-rama with a heart, and an inordinate interest in other key organs." - Roger Ebert, 2007

"And, while Superbad may not be "supergood," it's engaging enough to be worth paying full admission prices." - James Berardinelli, 2007

"Its characters make no apologies for who they are. They just act out, and hilarity ensues" - Jeffrey Chen, 2007

Basically the Unrated version features several prolonged dialogue sequences that add up to a total difference of approximately 6 minutes. These extensions aren't that scandalous but for a fan of this movie this version is worth a look and features some more funny scenes. You can find a detailed comparison between both versions with pictures here.

The film is set when it was made, 2006. Look at McLovin's ID for reference.

Was Evan Jimmy's brother?

It is never known for sure, but in a deleted scene it is revealed that Evan does in fact have a brother.
