Superbad








Director - Greg Mottola

Genre - Comedy


This film from producer Judd Apatow, the reigning King Midas of comedy, consists of two halves. The first half is stuffed to the point of popping buttons (like Pam Anderson's robust twins in a baby tee) with jokes so well-written we wanted to run through town telling everyone. The crusade of three friends to copulate before the school year ends while being vulgar to the bone is also remarkably earnest and sweet-natured, traits which are eternally etched on Michael Cera's face. The second half however runs out of lubricant...err...steam. You either 'McLovin' it, or you don't.

3.5 STARS!
