SuperBad is Super Good

August 17, 2007

According to the reviews I have seen, SuperBad is not your run of the mill movie and it isn’t SuperBad. Part of the review conducted by ReelViews.net

What if Quentin Tarantino collaborated with John Hughes on a teen comedy? Superbad is a decent approximation of what the result might be. As with Borat, there are no sacred cows here. The movie, produced by Judd Apatow, written by Seth Rogan & Evan Goldberg, and directed by Greg Mottola, pushes the genre’s envelope a little farther than anything before it has done. It recalls American Pie but with less nudity (in fact, there’s none to speak of) and dialogue that is more clever and more profane. The movie is frequently amusing and occasionally uproarious.The plot is straightforward as befits a production that’s more about jokes, dialogue, and character interaction than narrative progression. The protagonists are three stereotypical male high school seniors whose thoughts turn to sex once every 3.5 seconds. There’s Evan (Michael Cera), who’s close to an “average guy” – shy around girls but open with his friends. Seth (Jonah Hill) is overweight and pugnacious, and aware that his appearance doesn’t make him a babe-magnet. Fogell (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) is the uber-nerd whose social inadequacies and lack of emotional maturity allow him to think that the single moniker of “McLuvin” is a good name on a fake I.D. Fate gives the boys an opportunity to impress some girls by getting alcohol for a party. Seth has his eyes on Jules (Emma Stone), the organizer of the party. Evan is after Becca (Martha MacIsaac), a girl in his math class. And Fogell has chosen Nicola (Aviva), whose provocative manner of dress leaves him tongue-tied. Their misadventures take them to strange places and cause them to run afoul of Officers Slater (Bill Hader) and Michaels (Seth Rogan), the most inept cops this side of Hot Fuzz.
