Superbad Review

Screen Shot 2015-09-19 at 10.32.31 AM    Another classic comedy, this one of course centering on more recent times. Written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, this film re-tells moments of their high-school past and the dumb hilarity of it all captures perfectly by its three main leads. Perfectly cast, starring a bunch of famous people before they became famous, actually more like before this film made them famous, Superbad is bonkers coming of age story that still holds up. Starring Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, and this meaty hunk in the picture beside the review, with Emma Stone in her debut role, Superbad is great representation of that group of kids who think they’re cool but they honestly aren’t, they do sort-of know it, but they have a sort-of blasé attitude towards the notion, so when they’re given the opportunity to really be part of the cool dudes they try as hard as they can and we get to watch in this off-beat hysteria of a film. Yes, this might be the story of a bunch of dorks, but they’re such likable ones you’re attached to the screen by minute one and as the insanity of their wild-night gradually increases you’re amazed by these characters and the way they naturally comport. Probably the blue-print for all the crazy young-dude comedies like Accepted that followed Superbad, but still Superbad is the original, much better crafted character-driven hilarity that really introduced us to the Cera’s and Hill’s of the world. In conclusion, Superbad is super cool and rightfully deserves an 87 out of 100.
