SuperBad” is a teen coming-of-age flick that wants to follow in the footsteps of “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” and “Dazed and Confused.” It manages to include a good portion of “Animal House” in the process. Director Judd Apatow knows this territory as he also gave us “Knocked Up” and “40-Year-Old Virgin.”
The opening hour captures a lot of the painful realities of high school life. Jonah Hill and Michael Cera play two lovable losers in their senior year. They are both still virgins and desperately hoping to cure their “problem” at the last big party before graduation.
Many hilarious situations and quick-cut jokes ensue. But be warned they are peppered with raunchy comments by teenage males who talk as though no parents will ever hear what they say.
