Superbad is probably one of the better comedies I've seen in a little while. In a summer full of disappointing movies (Transformers..), this really hits home. It's a teen comedy, yes, but almost anyone can enjoy how these three d00ds play off of each other, and the ridic shit they get into. It is very raunchy, but the skullduggery is not overdone in any way. The Apatow troupe is on top of "R" comedy right now and this movie does nothing but maintain, if not further progress. The writing is fantastic in that the shit these kids say is totally legitimate and realistic, and I'm sure "McLovin" will become a standard saying/name in the near future for fans. See this movie now, for the only way you won't like it is if you're too nostalgic and you 1. Think you're too old to enjoy what these kids go through or 2. You hate it based only on the fact that you wish you weren't so old, which is ludicrous. Just watch and have some fucking fun.
