RJG Rating- 95

Seth & Evan ,best friends since childhood ,get a chance to have a great party before they move to separate colleges.

Starring- Jonah Hill,Micheal Cera
Director- Greg Mottola

Superbad is a movie about friendship and high school life.Just as its name ,its super bad (in a positive aspect) in terms of its jokes and situations.

All the actors have done a great job.They all hold a particular charm and take forward the movie without lose of pace.Micheal Cera & Jonah Hill are the lead actors,and they do an excellent job.Christoph Mintz as Fogell/McLovin ,Seth Rogen & Jon Hader as the two cops too give amazing supporting roles.

The story of Superbad takes place within a day,but its packed with humour and draws a neat picture of friendship.Coming from Judd Apatow ,you can be sure its not going to be a family movie.The jokes are the filthy types but they are all nicely blended into the plot.

Greg Mottola's direction is superb.The movie runs in a nice even pace and all the jokes are hilarious.It isnt over the top and lets the story and performances take the center stage.The theme of friendship tackled in Superbad might not be new ,but its the way its handled that makes the movie memorable.Even years later ,Superbad has set a standard for movies of this genre.

Overall,Superbad might not be for everyone ,but its a must watch movie.
