Title: Superbad Director: Greg Mottola Year: 2007 Run time: 1hr 53m
“From the guy who brought you Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin comes Superbad. Seth (Jonah Hill) and Evan (Michael Cera) want nothing more than to lose their virginity before they head off to college. To do that, though, they need to get liquor for the big party that night. With the help of their friend Fogell, a.k.a. McLovin (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), and his fake I.D., the three of them go on a hilarious chase for that elusive booze, dodging incompetent cops (Knocked Up’s Seth Rogen and “Saturday Night Live’s” Bill Hader), angry neighbors and jealous boyfriends.”
1:37 – Aww, look at baby Jonah. Epic flip phones, too. 7:59.- Mr C laughing at Jonas struggling to run, as if that’s not real life for us terrible runners. 10:52 – “It should be okay, don’t worry about it. I’m not worried about it, don’t worry about it at all.” 13:07 – Ahhh, teenage boys are awful! 17:37 – Ghostbusters lunchbox.
I expect this is a good film if you’re a teenage boy or have recently been a teenage boy, but it didn’t really mean anything to me. I quite liked the relationship between Cera and Hill, but that certainly wouldn’t have sustained me watching for the entire two hours. As the third of three comedy bundle disappointments, I was quite relieved to switch this one off and cross it off the list.
