It might not seem like a big deal now, but for a major motion picture to not cast thirty-year-olds as high schoolers was a huge break from the norm. Also it's funny.

At times grotesquely vulgar comedy stands out from the crowd thanks to its focus on the genuinely heart-warming and sweet natured depiction of the "bromance" between Cera and Hill, contrasted against the unlikely but endearing bond that forms between "McLovin" and Hader and Rogen's cops, whose attempts to regain their lost youth are equally interesting and endearing. Some slow spots, and some ugliness in at least one of the gags, more than redeemed by the film's better angels.

This movie is absolutely hilarious. I'd always see the trailers and think it would be one of the stupidest movies ever but it is actually a really good film. There is good drama, and fresh jokes. I was almost laughing throughout the entire movie. Michael Cera is the best. He is the king of being awkward. The Rogen and Apatow crew are on a roll, and I hope it stays that way for a long time.

All around, this was a pretty solid comedy. I didn't die of laughter too much, but there's an even amount of comedy as well as story. Cera and Hill work very well off of each other and I personally loved Plasse's ride-along with Rogen and Hader. Some of the jokes are ingenious. Not one of my favorite comedies, but it's one of the better modern ones out there.

It's amazing how little mold-breaking Superbad does -- every scene has some resemblance to a moment in a comedy like American Pie or Super Troopers, the lead characters fit the typical teen comedy stereotypes, and Michael Cera acts like Michael Cera. But the barrage of memorable and well-written scenes together with the clever use of a funk-themed music score make it one of the best comedies of 2007 -- certainly better than any that Apatow wrote/directed himself.

Wow. Amazingly hilarious comedy. Wasn't sure what to expect considering so many unproven entities (Cera's major cinematic debut, Greg Mottola's relative cinematic inexperience, Jonah Hill's subpar film choices), but it delivered in spades. Perhaps the greatest comedy I have seen in the last five years. Certainly one of the most entertaining. The best time I've had at the movies since 'Grindhouse'.

This is essentially the exact same thing as every movie ever made about horny teenagers trying to get booze so they could get laid at a party. The concept is nothing new, but this movie succeeds at updating the language and settings very well. If Dazed and Confused is the ultimate 70's party movie, Superbad is the ultimate 00's party movie. It has some absurdly funny moments, and a dumb, cliche ending where the two nerds score the hot girls after all. An entertaining mixed bag.

This is one of the funniest films of '07. The new wave of Apatow-Rogen sex comedies are refreshing in their ability to strike so many correct notes. The only jokes that seem to get little attention are the ones used in the trailers. This movie, along with Apatow and Rogen's other works, has hysterical and silly moments, but also humane and realistic moments. As a sidenote, I had trouble just breathing at one point in this film, which is always a great sign.

I have yet to be very impressed by anything from Apatow and his crew. Even "Freaks & Geeks" wasn't that great. I do LIKE his stuff, though. He has a knack for dialogue that's clever without sounding too forced or contrived, and he creates characters that transcend the usual stereotypes. But I'm not blown away by anything here, or doubled over with laughter. It was amusing, and reasonably genuine, but I probably wouldn't watch it again. Jonah Hill was the highlight.

Superbad is very very funny, but at many times during the film, I realized that the plot was practically nonexistent. The best humor was driven by Michael Cera's masterful ability to wield awkwardness like a massive battle ax. The lack of a plot doesn't actually take away from the film, as there is plenty of character and charm to it. It's simple, and unique, and certainly worth seeing. Really good!

Maybe the teen sex comedy classic of the "New Millennium". Childhood friends Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg wrote one of the most memorable comedies in recent years. Brilliantly cast the film contains laughs throughout while providing a heartfelt coming of age tale.

If you want to totally surprise yourself and see something complete different on a field of teen movies, choose this. I took it as usual comedies, but I was laughing my ass off! It's one of the most fresh and FUNNY films I've seen in long time. It's written by actor Seth Rogen, who was acting here as well as in (the lead of) the other comedy Knocked Up. Co-writer Evan was in the pen of Knocked Up as well. Lead charecters were ultra funny. Emma Stone, very hot fresh face (listen her voice!!).

Great film. The way it is able to tap into the fragile nature of male friendship and still be hilarious is incredible. The touching basement scene where Seth and Evan are finally able to say what they've always been feeling, but couldn't say due to societal views (that they love each other) is great. When morning comes and the booze is worn off they still love each other but must hide it under a facade of jokes, securing their sexuality ("your mom has big tits"). RIP Mintz-Plasse's career.

More like super-lame. Gratuitous gross-out humour the Farrellys & Wayans would be proud of (the period scene was revolting and unncecessary), but worse than that, I hated the characters. 40 Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up were wonderful, hilarious and observant comedies with great characters. They were losers sure, but losers with heart. Seth was just an unbearable asshole with no redeeming qualities bar penis-drawing and I deeply resented being forced to spend an hour and a half in his company.

Raunchy humor, a bit of bromance, and a coming of age story that keeps the laughs going. Harkens back to all of those 80's gotta get the girls comedies we grew up with. Not a new concept, but the story was handled well, had some really funny characters, and made me laugh.

The best high school comedy of the 00s, and one of the best comedies in years. Heaps fantastic lead performances on top of an honest, raunchy, and hilarious script, tempering its dick and period blood jokes with a few effective moments of heart. It's a completely satisfying package, and I suspect that kids born this decade might still watch it 20 years from now just as I still watch Ferris Bueller.

This movie is hilarious. More then one time I found myself having hour long conversations with other people just discussing different scenes from this movie. The cops were hilarious.

It's got it's moments, but I wasn't laughing the entire time. Maybe a few chuckles with the scenes with the cops, but the story is mostly about sex, which is for me, an uninspiring comedy topic. Still, it's not an Adam Sandler comedy, so it's quite entertaining and enjoyable.

I had really high hopes for this, since I (used to) really like Michael Cera. Unfortunately, he's the lone bright spot in a movie that was completely disappointing. This whole thing is basically just a self-inclusion story for the screenwriters so they could fantasize about somehow landing the hottest girls in school. There's really only one funny joke (dick drawings) and the rest of them are either cliche or misogynistic.

The first time I saw (and reviewed) this movie, I didn't hold it in high regard. In fact, my review seemed way harsher than my reaction to the film in retrospect. And now, after a couple years and a refresher viewing, I'm jumping on the bandwagon: this is simply just a fucking funny, totally entertaining movie. Aces, man.

as per my Knocked Up review, the omnipresent apatow & co. are starting to wear a bit thin, and i still prefer 40 year old virgin, but where this film wins is the main story. the ultra-needy relationship that exists between hill and cera borders on creepy, and i honestly expected this movie to end up with the two of them being lovers. if it did, it wouldnt have changed anything for me, bc the whole intrigue was in their relationship and what would happen to them. kudos to hader and mclovin

The funniest of Apatow's "Big Three", I've watched it upwards of five times and still laughed throughout. The mark of great comedy is in the delivery and relateability of the joke, which "Superbad" seems to have mastered. Proof: I've had many of the exact conversations found in this film. Apatow managed to capture the essence of male, teenage dialogue.

Very funny stuff here, overly raunchy, excessively foul-mouthed, utterly geeky, but somehow warm-hearted and welcome. Likely to be the year's funniest movie next to "Knocked Up." Apatow (who produces here) is on quite the roll.

It's nearly been ten years since this came out can the people who thought they were too cool for this please revisit it and see the beauty within? The first 30 minutes has to be one of the tightest comedy scripts out there. Related a bit too much to Jonah Hill's character. Obvious comparisons to be made to other teen comedies but this one is different as it's the only one to really embrace being a loser (especially if you look at Hill's character) whereas all those other flicks seem fake.

While I didn't feel it was the be all, end all of comedies, it is definitely worth the price of admission.

Admittedly I'm quite late to the party on this one but it is indeed quite funny. There's a lot of truth in the bromance of the film that's hidden under layers of crass idiocy, much like real life high school friendships. Though I don't find the movie on a whole to be superbly deep the bitter-sweet ending is certainly a highlight as to the reality of moving on from high school. Highly recommended if you like the Rogen/Apatow style of humour.

The scenes with the cops destroy the film's pacing, and an overlong scene at a party bogs down the middle. However, Cera and Hill have chemistry together, and an extended joke about a unique psychological disorder is priceless. Eight percent of all kids do it.

Halfway between Dazed & Confused and American Pie, this is a big, raunchy high school comedy that feels a lot more honest than it should, given how absurd most of the situations are. It's total high school wish fulfillment (literally: Rogen and Goldberg wrote the script in high school and filled it with real people, starring themselves), but it's also very endearing, and very funny. The cops are the most unrealistic part, but dammit, they're also the funniest. Bill Hader rules.

What's there to say, this is iconic on many levels. As dumb as Superbad can be, it finds itself balancing a raunchy immature approach, with a relatable and honest foreshadow underneath it all. It is cliche and blends into so many typical high school tropes, but it's not unrealistic in it's attempt to understand dumb high school kids. Doing so while sprinkling in heartfelt moments and real topics when preparing for life post high school. This is my personal favorite comedy of all time.

If you can't tolerate foul-mouthed teenagers, then you have NO BUSINESS seeing Superbad. If you can "hang", then I recommend it. It's the story of 3 highschool dorks who (hoping to capture their first "lay") promise to secure a $100 of liquor for a party hosted by one of the school's popular girls. It boasts a surprisingly sophisticated script considering its Animal House-ish tone and material. I would have rated it higher, but the 2 Cool Cops were a bit over-the-top and Jim Carey-like.

The vulgarity seems forced in the beginning, but you get used to it quickly and then it's just funny.

Excellent film, I recommend this to everyone who doesn't mind vulgarity. It does drag on a bit, but it's funny, charming, and very enjoyable. I AM MCLOVIN!

Minors lie about bringing booze to a party so they can fit in, but the plan falls through. Hasn't this movie been done a million times already? At least American Pie already had the booze in place. Cera was more enjoyable in Juno, and the rest of the cast/characters are dispensible...including McLovin', who just seemed out of place in this film. The comedy was slapstick/schtick. And this movie was a bit long. In a word, sophomoric.

Superbad is ultimately a success, even if I didn't find it all that funny. It works because it's worried more about the characters and the situations that their antics get them into, rather than just the situations themselves. It's a change that makes the difference between wanting to ignore the film and wanting to give it a hug. Superbad ends up making you feel the latter, which is surprising, especially considering how these characters act for most of the film's running time.
