A review of "Superbad" — 5 years ago
This girls & booze loser-comedy is raunchy and explicit, yet charming. It is highly quotable and displays an instant-nerd-classic quality.
Too long? Definitely. The Policemen-McLovin storyline was overstretched and spoiled the main characters’ dynamics.
Superbad depicts adolescence in all it’s glory. Foul language – check; alcohol-inflicted barfing – check; spitting bullies – check.
Although I found the flick enjoyable, Superbad failed to make me laugh out laud, most of the time I only chuckled. I’ve expected it to be hysterical it turned out to be only cute, in it’s gross outteenage-guys-talk sort of way.
