I am McLovin

Superbad is not a super bad movie. Unlike some of the other Seth Rogen movies I’ve seen, Superbad wasn’t as offensive to me. It’s also one of the first Judd Apatow comedies that I’ve seen. As I might have mentioned before on my blog, raunchy humor isn’t always appealing to me. Not to say that Superbad doesn’t get really distasteful at times. I mean what’s the premise exactly? A group of High School Seniors try to buy beer and lose their virginity. Of course it’s raunchy and profane. For me the funniest stuff comes from the situations they get in. I will say that Seth Rogen and his friend Evan Goldberg do know how to write for High School students. Jonah Hill and Michael Cera (named after the writers Seth and Evan) are two forever friends who desperately try to maintain their friendship before college separates them. So they try really hard to get beer for a party that one of the hot girls at school is hosting. Played by Emma Stone in her debut performance. Seth is the raunchy one obsessed with drawing penises. While Evan is the more awkward one. The best jokes actually come from one character in particular. I do mean McLovin. That scene is pure comedy gold. The same goes for any scene of him involving the police. Seth Rogen steps into that role along with Bill Hader. You have to be just a little immature to enjoy it, but Superbad is a comedy worth McLovin.
