Superbad

Critics Consensus

Deftly balancing vulgarity and sincerity while placing its protagonists in excessive situations, Superbad is an authentic take on friendship and the overarching awkwardness of the high school experience.

    Never quite as funny or as sincere as it wants to be, but still full of memorable little moments. Rating: 58

    Smart writing anchored by top comedic timing by the entire cast, Superbad is a funny, sincere, and lighthearted look into high school and teenage experience that is sure to relate to everybody.

    It's the type of movie that's enjoyable to watch and gets better and better every time. It's a funny buddy comedy and behind all of the sex, crude language and booze is a heartfelt story about 2 friends that would lost without each other. It's not a very mature comedy movie which makes it more funny especially for an immature person like me. But it's cliched awkward sex and under aged drinking makes for a pretty predictable comedy.

    I've always found comedy to be an exhausting genre, as it always seems to be one devoid of any kind of actual charm or purpose and without sending pretentious I just usually hate them. Superbad on the other hand is really f***ing hilarious. Emma Stone, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera and a few other future prophets of comedy shine in a simple film about three boys trying to buy alcohol for a graduation party. Jonah Hill's character holds the film and perfectly balances Cera's sarcastic normalcy.
