I know this topic has come up before, but I did a very quick search and as it came out a while ago I figure it's OK to talk about it. And mods want me to delete it, will do.

Anyway, after hearing Superbad is hilarious and whatever I actually sat down and watched it. And my conclusion?

It was crap.

The first ten minutes or so with Evan and Seth was pretty funny, but as soon as Fogle came in, it went downhill. The 'McLovin' joke got old after about 3 seconds, and the whole middle of the movie was totally pointless. After they finally get the damn party, the idiotic cops show up again... and the ending just plain sucked.

Why the hell are movies always disappointing?

Wow Tom, I thought you had taste

I love Superbad.

Haha, I'm sorry. Like I said, the first part was funny and kind of relatable . But the whole middle section just put me to sleep.

It's just supposed to be a stupid feel good teen film about a couple of idiots and a guy called McLovin.

For what it is it's a great film. If you were looking for something deeper then I think you chose unwisely.

I quite like it.

It was kind of what I expected it to be. The obsession with sex and all that crap was great, but the whole farce (sp?) thing going on in the middle was really meh.

It's one of those movies where it's so stupid it's funny, but then it's so funny it's stupid again.

the scene where the fat kid goes ver the different scenarios in the store is the only part i found really funny, and the first party they go to was ok too, but other than that...

Well, it would've been boring if they just bought the beer and went to the party.

Superbad was a good movie.

Fogle - "I told her what time it was"

That was the best bit.

My favourite line (well, the only one that made me laugh) was "You know chicks always say 'Oh man, I go so drunk, I can't believe I had sex with that guy'. We could be that mistake!"

Yeah the whole cops/mclovin thing was a bit ****. Could have done with some more humour instead of driving round in a police car being gay.

I've finished school.

And it's not like I don't like stupid teen movies... Not Another Teen Movie is hilarious as is Eurotrip. But this was just pretty poor IMO.

Far, far better than Napoleon Dynamite, I would say. I couldn't really find anything that was geniunely funny. It was dull...

I liked Superbad. Not one of my favorited comedies, but still very good.

Superbad was dumb and funny.

That's all a comedy movie needs to be! I liked it.

Exactly! You've gotta take these kinds of movies with a grain of salt. It has no purpose but to be stupid and give laughs. It's not really supposed to have an eccentric storyline.

Or, he's British

It's very American humour, and one thing that annoys me is all those British girls who go around bumming American teen comedy (Friends, American Pie, etc), but for me this is an exception.

I too thought it was boring and hugely overrated. I did think McLovin was funny though. And I want to party with him.

I watched some American stand-up the other day and I didn't even crack a smile.

I don't like to bash other people's shizz and that, but these two guys were as funny as shovels. Obviously it ain't all bad, but if most American humour is like that...it ain't for me and my British tastes.

Oddly enough I do love Friends and Scrubs though...maybe it was just those guys...

The movie appealed to me, I share many traits of Evan and Fogell (and McLovin)
