This film along with Hairspray and Knocked Up (featuring some of the same personnel as this film) is one of the most entertaining and fun times I've had so far this year at the movies.

A simple, fun, and occasionally, but thankfully only occasionally, contrived story.

By the time the obnoxious, way-over-the-top cops came on, I was ready to leave.

Worst movie of the year, hands down .

Their adventure is complicated by Fogell's falling in with two inept cops who both slow and assist the plan.

Please, don't waste your time even thinking about watching this.

It all makes for a good, enjoyable romp with a funky soundtrack (I loved the beginning credit sequence!

I was really hoping for a hilarious coming of age story, instead I got something that mostly boring and really kind of gross.

Irritating, moronic and pointless .

It is a smart, witty, and factual teen movie side-stepping clichés and underwritten primary characters, while at the same time remaining funny and entertaining until the end.

Michael Cera was great, and most Arrested Development fans should find his performance here just as entertaining as his take on the George Michael character he played on that show.

The plot was trite and in many spots, slow.

I had two major complaints with "Superbad": one is that I can't stand the actor Jonah Hill, who unfortunately gets the bulk of the movie's screen time; the other is that I'm also tiring quickly of Seth Rogan, and his and Bill Hader's antics as the most irresponsible cops in the world provide the movie with its least funny moments, and serve only as a distraction from the much funnier and actually sort of sweet story about three teenagers' coming of age.

The worst movie ever.

Dull.

In the first 15 minutes of this movie I wanted to turn it off.

Anything that would have let me leave the theater feeling the least bit satisfied.

It dragged and dragged on.

First time I've walked out of a movie since being dragged to some Ringwald dreck by a date in 1985.

The boldest highlight of the movie, one of the funniest and most enjoyable things I've seen in a movie lately, is the plot strand involving Seth Rogen and Bill Hader as two cops who have no inhibitions with rebelliously fudging the law for their own good time and bringing the character well known by even those have yet to see the film as McLovin, played with a stunning dose of gawkiness by Christopher Mintz-Plasse, along for the rest of their shift, letting him do things like fire a gun and have beers with them, all leading to the message the film sends pertaining to people even older than those who will be seeing this movie and understanding the virginal naiveté of the characters.

It takes place in the run-up to a big party (being hosted by the stunning Emma Stone) and a pair of losers are looking to get booze so that they can get their possible dates drunk and go from there.

The worst movie I have ever seen!!!.

My biggest gripe here is that the film is too long for its nature (~110 minutes).

It is indeed "superbad", possibly one of the worst movies I've seen...

Recommended if you want to waste 2 hours of your life by watching tripe.

The filmmakers attempt to make the scenes of male bonding touching, but they are rather contrived and lame.

Fogel "McLovin" (Christopher Mintz-Plasse ) is definitely the best character in the movie, and Bill Hader and Seth Rogan make great appearances as bored cops out or a little fun.

While the same humor is used, it lacks character emotion for the viewer to care, gross moments that are meant to be funny but dragged out four minutes too long, and an over abundance of bitching and moaning.

It's a scrappy, messy, disorganized, terribly pace, slow, maudlin, and really the directors made no effort to build a story.

In those hectic and unpredictable years the biggest issue focused on is almost universally sex.

But, despite the repetitive joking about getting BJs, it really came down to a movie about friendship and the pain of growing up.

In short, save your money for better newer movies, such as "Knocked Up".

Teenage years are a fuzzy and confusing time.

A highly entertaining coming of age comedy .

Superbad was one of those movies I decided to check out because I was bored and for some reason I decided to waltz down memory lane and remind my-self of all the mischief I got into high school.

to predictable!

Save your money.. don't see this movie.

No real plot, just random segments of stupid people running around making idiots out of themselves and others.

Congratulations to 'Superbad' on being the first film that I have ever walked out of.

There was a particularly gross-out scene (but with hilarious if crude reactions) and a couple of dodgy references, but in all, it was very enjoyable and I could easily watch again.

This review is so boring because there isn't much to talk about the movie.

Others will be bored/offended.

But the middle section dragged on with unending stupid joke after stupid joke, which just eventually dragged on my nerves.

Also, since the film combines screwball elements and realistic dialogue makes it quite engaging.

) But to deliver "special" as it promised, the movie might need a less trivial plot, a shorter running time, a plot that went productive places, fewer cop scenes, a more daring pretext (other than just setting a record for F-bombs), and leads that are enjoyable to identify with.

" What can I say, the ad was misleading, making me think there was actually some kind of plot and maybe a reason why I would waste two hours of my life on this film.

Superbad delivers in the department of laughs because the jokes are oftentimes unexpected.

I thought: "what a waste of time!

The movie, honestly, was the single worst movie of modern times and recent memory that I have ever seen or been subjected to.

Superbad gets the WillyT Comedic Crest for being endlessly funny and enjoyable.

Another nice thing about Superbad is that the crude and explicit nature of jokes are smartly exploited which makes them enjoyable eliminating the gross element.

After half an hour I was bored to sleep and had to switch it off.

I thought it would be funny, but it turned out to be dull and really not that funny.

Crude, crass jokes and pointless scenes throughout the film...

The scenes with the cops and McLovin are boring and drag for too long and they go around in circles, not really going anywhere.

A stunning and hilarious comedy from the crowd who brought us "Knocked Up" and "40-Year-Old Virgin".

The movie consists of a basic, yet entertaining plot and a whole host of rude and inappropriate jokes.

The movie is too long - the scenes with the policemen were the least effective and could have been pared down a lot.

This was a waste of time and money and is probably the most UNFUNNY stuff to come out of the Hollywood garbage can for ages.

The storyline is boring as hell and even the gross-out gags just weren't funny.

Superbad is worth watching...

u will probably enjoy this under the extreme circumstances that u are utterly bored and there's no one to talk to,and u have already watched 18hrs of porno not stop.

Superbad, on the other hand, has no message.

Otherwise, this film is worth watching.

Listening to unlikable teens talk about sex CONSTANTLY is pretty dull and after half the film was over, I was done--sick of the film and amazed at how stupid people are who actually liked this drivel.

And also what's good about this is that you can't predict the next move or the next line,scenario is so creative and unexpected.

Nicely set up the comedy plot, but sometimes the characters are getting too predictable and too boring.

These guys made the flick entertaining and pretty much saved it.

Although this is a teen movie, and yet another teen "gross out" movie, I'm in my 50s and enjoyed it very much.

Funny and engaging teen comedy .

And you can watch it over and over again even knowing everything what happens and still think that this is hilarious and enjoyable comedy.

Besides that, 'Superbad' is extraordinarily entertaining and I recommend it to anyone looking for a fantastic teen comedy.

Seth and Evan were boring, forgettable characters.

I can honestly say,every gut in 9th grade should be required to watch this just so we can keep the kids entertaining,and the cops too.

The plot and characters were sometimes so stupid, it made me dislike the film but also really like it because these scenes of high school stupidity was very entertaining to someone who is just sitting down watching it.

Revel instead on the entertaining performances by the bombastic Hill and the reserved Cera - these guys act as if they've known each other all their lives, the chemistry's so good.

every time you though it was going to slow down, something in the plot just Changed and kept building up laughs!

I'm all for freedom of expression and particularly freedom of sexual expression, and freedom in comedy, where nothing is sacred, and long live Lenny Bruce and all that, but the obscenity in this movie becomes a bit tiresome after a while.

Pretty darn dull .

to put it politely , overly dull, in everything they do.

It was a waste of time.

The acting was pretty good, but the idea that idiotic dorks, drooling immaturely every ten minutes over stunning girls who are out of their reach, who actually turn out to be good guys who get the girl in the end, doesn't really work.

This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen it's not worth the time or money.

Worst movie I ever saw.

This movie just drags on and on and on with boring irrelevant conversations between the characters that have nothing to do with the plot.

The talent and chemistry of stars Michael Cera, Jonah Hill, and new comer Christopher Mintz-Plasse make the characters entertaining and relatable to Joe Average movie-goer.

Really dull.

I am not normally into comedies, particularly ones that involve American teenagers coming of age sort of thing.

To start, the story was a little drawn out, it took them most of the film to arrive at this 'party' (which is supposed to be the main element of the film) and then only spent, 3 mins there.

This movie was so well written and honestly quite entertaining.

Most of the scenes are so contrived that they require a Herculean effort to not shout "oh come on" every few minutes.

But its silly little "social commentary" and its insistence on developing empty, one-dimensional characters are nothing short of pitiful.

The soundtrack made this film different from others and direction made it enjoyable even at those parts which weren't funny (which didn't supposed to be funny).

Michael Cera is an effeminate, monotone wreck.

Yawn!

The laughs are intense and never stop.

The final half hour is slow and quite honestly, not that funny.

Actually it sort of does have a plot, which is the friendship of Seth and Evan that is about to be broken as they will enter college, but that part only brings down the movie in my opinion; it's boring.

Superbad manages to be both enjoyable and touching, and not in the creepy-uncle sort of way, either.

For least but not last Christopher Mintz-Plasse, he brings a fresh air to a really boring part of the movie and his entrance in the movie is probably the only one that made me give the most honestly laugh all the entire movie.

Rogen/Apatow/Evan's latest offering is right on the money, in this story about a couple of high school loser geeks trying to make some kind of impact on their dreary lives as they prepare to head out to college.

What I also love about Superbad is that this film takes place during the course of one day and night because when a film is set during one day anything can happen in one day that can change a persons life and in this film the things and events that happen in this film wild,funny,unpredictable and very surprising.

But it was really one of the worst movies I have seen this year!

It was so well written and honestly quite entertaining.

Maybe he made 1 or 2 funny jokes but he was pretty boring for the amount of time he took up.

The chemistry between both Cera and Hill creates a dynamic that is enjoyable to watch.

While the storyline is semi predictable the intelligent script makes it something I would certainly recommend if your in need of a laugh.

One was loud and obnoxious and pretty vile, the other was a charisma vacuum and dull to the point of being in a coma.

Heartfelt and riveting from the first frame to the last.

Every so often though something like this turns up and puts a fresh spin on what is a faded and often cliché-laden tale.

I very rarely give up on a movie, and almost always watch until the end, no matter how bitter, but I gave up on this one due to sheer boredom.

This entertaining comedy is more of a coming of age film than the ultimate party movie.

They all seem to share the problem that there needs to be a lull between these two acts where nothing seems to happen, and the whole film slows down as a result of it.

However, their mission to get to the party with booze becomes difficult when they face seemingly endless array of difficulties including Fogell's run-in with two amateur cops Officer Slater (played by Bill Hader) and Officer Michaels (played by Seth Rogen) who slow their plans down.

I generally don't like the "dumb humor" genre, however Superbad was very enjoyable.

This film is wicked and manages to tap into the bizarre mix of teen confusion and angst (which inevitably only becomes hilarious when we are old enough to look back at it!

The fat kids obnoxious quips got old, and the skinny kids monotone voice made him seem bored all the time.

That was an AWESOME movie, highly recommend it.

Watching the two main characters talk about sex, vaginas, penises etc. was boring, and there are a number of memorably lame parts, such as Seth talking about how he loved to draw penises as a kid and how he got in trouble for it, Francis (the guy who takes Seth and Evan to a different party where they can steal some alcohol) getting beaten up, Seth getting period blood on his pants, etc. The scenes with Fogell out with the two crazy cops also didn't usually amuse me.

For instance, the bit with the 2 cops, played by Bill Hader and Seth Rogen was so silly, so over the top, it just wasn't funny at all and worst then that, it went on for way too long.

Really, it feels like I watched four hours, with the never ending scene at the grocery store, the the cops prowling, then the party where nothing happens.

If you're a fan of comedies and you have yet to watch Superbad, I highly recommend it.

I am now wondering whether I should waste my time with Pinapple Express...

I found it very funny and highly entertaining which is all I have ever asked for from a film.

I had more than 20 moments in which I was bored and waited for it to end

I only give Superbad a 2 because I do like the young actors, but the material and script they were given was just too unbelievable, unfunny, and unnecessarily gross to be entertaining.

Michael Cera was great, and most should find his performance here just as entertaining as his take on George Michael.

Irreverent, Snappy and Unpredictable, Superbad is One of the Decade's Best Comedies .

It's a perfectly fine source of entertainment all be it slightly too self-indulgent and aware of its moral responsibility.

The storyline is interesting, the further-on execution is, as mentioned, witty, crass, crude, situational, engaging & quite memorable.

This movie was insipid, uninspired, vapid, tiresome, trite and wasn't even effective at its attempts at vulgarity.

It has got to be one of the absolute worst movies I have ever watched.

Michael Cera was great, and most Arrested Development fans should find his performance here just as entertaining as his take on the George Michael character he played on that show.

There are too many good films out there that deserve a look to waste your time and money on this.

Don't waste your time on this, re-watch American Pie as it's in another league.

If none of these tests apply to you, save yourself the extreme boredom and waste of spending more than 1 second on this worthless endeavor.

This movie steers in many unique directions, and becomes quite unpredictable.

One of the worst movie I ever saw.

It is simply the worst movie ever.

Awful, boring, pointless .

She continues to try and get him to do her, and he tells her, that maybe they should slow down.

But if you have seen the movie Rush Hour 3 and your bored with your girlfriend or boyfriend then yeah just go see it.

Superbad could be described as a sort of feel good film for recent high school graduates, or those reflecting back with a nostalgic tear on the crazy carefree days of their youth, or it could be described as a raucous, profane and gut bustingly hilarious take on the teenage dream, or at least a romanticized version of it - the reality being, the film somehow manages to seamlessly blend the two, distributing heartfelt sentiment with a cheery smile and an unapologetic innuendo, making the end result far more enjoyable than it had any right to be.

It IS a basic teen movie but the misadventures make it worth watching and it actually met the expectations that a lot of people touted.

Unfortunately, it does feel long and drawn out overall, I can't remember a lull in the story, but the pacing just dragged a bit.

Superbad was just unexpected.

My expectations ran high given that filmmaker Judd Apatow produced the film, and as he proved with "The 40 Year-Old Virgin" and "Knocked Up", he can bring unexpected heart into the most absurdly comical of situations.

Superbad is super-sad, disappointing, dull, lifeless and not very funny or gross.

The jokes were really mundane, other than hear Seth say "fuck" about a million times over, there were only a few other jokes.

Don't get me wrong, crude can sometimes be funny, hell I quite liked American Pie and 40 Year Old Virgin, but they at least had a bit more depth than this waste of our money.

"Superbad" is a total waste of time to watch.

This is not to say that the movie doesn't have its moments (the Thai last name "Phuck" was hilarious), but these are so in between mean jokes, mumblecore dialogue and boring drama, that you don't really enjoy it.

An unexpected opportunity presents itself as they are invited to a "cool girls" party.

In short, while a few of the scenes are really worth watching (on hulu.

I enjoyed it, failed to see it as a comedy.

Also, since it has "George-Michael" in it from Arrested Development, I assumed it might be worth watching for that alone (the reason most people saw Licensed to Wed - for the Office cast members).

Even though I've seen it before in one form or another, I still thought it was funny, particularly the first half hour or so and also the last half hour, the middle dragged a bit.

He is sometimes funny but too predictable.

Don't be fooled by the trailer, the trailer makes it look funny, enjoyable, and pleasant.

The true reason that i didn't enjoy this film despite some moments that were genuinely entertaining cannot be put in one sentence, for it only becomes apparent after a long and drawn out explanation.

Don't waste your time or money .

I'm not kidding, this one goes on my Top 5 Worst Movies EVER Made, and takes the #2 slot.

What distinguishes the movie, however, is the characters themselves, who essentially start together, then go their separate ways in the night of partying at unexpected places, and eventually linking back up in the end.

What we didn't expect were ponderous scenes that went far too long for the humor available, pointless scenes with irrelevant characters that did nothing to enhance the story or the laughs.

The starting point of this movie is a theme that's come up before--it's basic to Brian Robbins' silly and stupid but entertaining 'The Perfect Score' (2004): two best friends in high school are going to be separated because one got into a good college and the other didn't.

Nothing happens.

This is not a chick flick but anyone who was ever a young male, will relate to this great coming of age film.

As confused as it is boring .

What I cant get around is the horrific banality with which the obnoxious Jonah Hill character uses sexual dialog.

Don't waste your time with this one...

but well worth watching.

It's a coming of age story which is hilarious and makes you ponder at the same time.

Don't get me wrong, I can tolerate profanity just fine, but this was profanity for profanity's sake, pointless.

That's what made them boring as all get-up.

Suderbad is a very funny and entertaining movie.

Overall then a reasonably enjoyable genre comedy that benefits from the writing of current "men of the moment" Rogen and Goldberg as well as Cera being in the cast.

While the film does have it's share of dull moments, the longer runtime ultimately brings about more laughs.

Overall the movie was very entertaining.

This movie is a good example of a complete entertaining story and is a memorable drama.

Definitely worth watching...

Im 17 years old and my first thought when I left the theater was this is so realistic.

Boring and disgusting .

Both Hill and Cena hit each comedic note perfectly, and Hader and Rogen as the cliché cops add just the right amount of ridiculousness to make their inclusion forgivable.

While comparisons with American Pie and Porkys are bound to be made, Superbad is really in a class of its own; it's a funny, entertaining and above all fond homage to the writer's teen years, one that when it isn't tickling you with its well-observed humour it's showing you its soul - something most teen comedies don't.

It's all the more stunning since that story - three losers try to get laid before they go to collage - is as old as Catherine Zeta-Jones' husband.

Its a rare occurrence to hear dialog this realistic with characters we care about from start to finish while keeping it consistently entertaining with the substance provided.

An entertaining though surprisingly vituperative commentary track is on Disc One with the cast and crew split between LA and New York.

Very enjoyable, and one that I hope to enjoy very often in the future.

This dire waste of celluloid is an insult to audiences, a cynical attempt to produce a formulaic teen comedy which steals ideas from a hundred films that have done it before, and done it a hundred times better.

Only film I have ever walked out of.

It's a coming of age teenage angst film.

The story is great and moves along a fantastic pace mixing character stories between each other and running into one another with unpredictable and funny circumstances.

This movie is predictable for those that have seen these already.

Joining them are several other intriguing characters.

Totally unexpected .

Seriously, don't waste your time or your money.

Hilarious, but a little Cliché and Lazy .

The film starts a little slow with Seth (Jonah Hill) picking up Evan (Michael Cera) at his house & checking out his mom (played by a shapely Stacey Edwards).

As they wander over the empty nighttime streets in a strange alternate Universe where no parents are ever around to recognize them, they are forced to confront their impending maturity while dropping their witty facades and coming to terms with their friendship and reliance of each other.

He has tapped into the roots of what Gen-X and Gen Why-ers experienced in their lives and made them into entertaining movies.

It's a coming of age story which is hilarious and makes you ponder at the same time.

Mintz-Plasse is very much a simple physical gag but he is an enjoyable one and works well with Rogen and Hader despite their thread being one of the dumbest parts of the film.

You'll laugh so hard at his time spent with the police, you'll need some Motrin and an ice pack by the time you leave the theater.

Sometimes it was like watching a conversation going very slowly from start to beginning, but flapping its wings very intensely, so much so that it gets tiresome.

Entertaining and Candid .

But I digress, it did have a definite hilarious scene in a party they gatecrash, which involves, what else, bodily fluids in the most unexpected of manners.

Most people think "smart" comedy is pretentious, dry, and over your head.

When all is said and done, Superbad shouldn't let down the fans of other Apatow productions, and there are many entertaining jokes for everyone else too; particularly Seth's penis drawings are pretty creative and worth seeing, if that kind of humour is your thing.

Otherwise, if you have a functioning brain, this movie is just stupid and a waste of time.

4) The storyline is cliché in parts.

The usual nasal boredom of their voices usually makes me want to shoot myself for listening the to movie going sheep who love these movies.

wow that was the biggest waste of money i think i've ever made....

DON'T Waste your money.

I just find it to be my prerogative, nay, my OBLIGATION to warn whoever I can about this total waste of time.

A smart as hell not to mention extreme vulgar,sidesplittingly funny that is one of the most enjoyable I had in ages and just to let you know this film has scenes of drug usuge too all involving teens.

"Aside from the three main characters, everyone else is a tired stereotype, from the stupid cops of Seth Rogen and Bill Hader (played with enough pizazz to overshadow their cliché-ness), to the naïve liquor store counter girl who accepts a clearly highly suspicious fake ID, to the girls merely existing so that the main characters can (or cannot) have sex with them.

Easier said than done; all their attempts at buying liquor go wrong in unexpected ways, leading to a series of more or less unfortunate events involving the duo's geeky friend Fogell, also known as "McLovin" (Christopher Mintz-Plasse).

The difference is this is a coming of age story of our males & 2 females.

None of the scenes or plots are funny, most are gross, lewd or sexually pointless.

It was the first time I actually felt like replicating that scene from "Family Guy" where Stewie flew out to Hollywood to slap a director in the face for causing him to waste 90 minutes of his life on such a patently worthless and unentertaining disaster.

I think movies in which I am supposed to cheer on some insensitive teenage boy gets laid, as masculinity is defined by how many women you sleep with, are pathetic and pointless.

Yeah a lot of comedies are like this, but I was literally bored the second time I tried to watch this.

This was pretty darn dull.

McLovin was great and some of the other characters were really funny, but many of the scenes, especially the ones with the cops, were just boring filler.

I found the movie slow, even boring at times.

My opinion of the movie is that its a really a good movie, fun and enjoyable especially for teens of the same age group as the characters.

If you can get past the beginning though it turns out to be a decent comedy worth watching.

Occasionally the two cops (Bill Hader, Seth Rogan) are annoying because they are just too stupid, but they mostly made the movie more enjoyable.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse in his screen debut as super-nerd Fogell makes an entertaining wild card, whose unexpected collusion with the two cops, is a total surprise.

Seth Rogen films are always fun and entertaining.

It's a coming of age story which is hilarious and makes you ponder at the same time.

It is very painfully predictable, boring, and just a waste of time and money.

Both times, I have literally had sore jaws from laughing and smiling so much and tonight I actually laughed more than I did the first time, mainly because the characters are so believably funny and entertaining in the way they have been written.

Jonah Hill was surprisingly funny as a stereotypical tough-wannabee nerdy guy, and actually compensates for Cera (strange how Cera got all the buzz for 'Superbad', though considering how pretentious Hill ended up now him receiving it could have been worse).

What Jude does is add a slight twist to the genre, which is sometime satirical, sometimes slapstick, sometimes just plain funny, and at others just plain irritating or boring.

Can you say, "contrived plot point?

This movie must be one of the worst movies ever made.

Michael Cera seems to be only able to play the same boring, nerdy, over thinking, teen character in every single movie he is in, and Jonah Hill is not much better.

It's a coming of age story which is hilarious and makes you ponder at the same time.

next to that they should have some unexpected scenes!

It was just a way to waste a bit of time.

It's witty, crass, crude, situational, engaging & quite memorable.

It did have its moments of hilarity, but it also had its moments of boredom.

Considering that the cinema was largely populated with teenagers, who I assume are this films target audience, I think that speaks volumes for its hilarity or lack thereof £13.00 to watch this, don't waste your money.

Coming of age.

I honestly think this might be the worst movie I've seen in months.

The film is funny and emotionally engaging which is what it really needs to be, and thus some of the dud jokes and 2-D characters are easy to forgive.

I was -so- bored I wanted to leave halfway through.

The first time I saw it left me with a wide smile grinning from ear to ear after I walked out the theatre.

His device of choice; the realism and awkwardness of the coming of age (or in 40 year old virgin's case, the awkwardness of never have came of age).

To my surprise, the movie did have quite a bit of this excessive kind of humor, but I somehow enjoyed it because of the directing and acting.

A strange coming of age film.

Many situations had great potential but seemed to end in a bland void and, while I very much appreciated the character Fogell, this made it all so more frustrating as the whole story around him resulted in totally unbelievable fantasy about those cool, anarchic cops adopting him as their partner in crime.

The plot is as old as they come: Male high school student buddies have two weeks 'til graduation, want to have sex before said school is out, must get alcohol along the way or this quest is apparently meaningless, experience unrealistic obstacles along the way, blah, blah, blah (yawn).

This whole movie was pointless, it wasn't even that entertaining.

generally it's a sequence of unconnected events, really bad plot and dull stuff.

Superbad is the archetypal teen movie: ultra cliché premise, stereotyped characters, and a scenario that fits on a subway ticket.

They merely talked about vaginas and it was pointless.

A great movie, but totally unexpected.

Look beyond the surface and you'll find a really entertaining movie.

Constant references to oral sex and annoying/unlikeable character (Seth & the cops) make for a mind numbing, pointless couple of hours.

Superbad was extremely entertaining .

I never walk out of a movie, but I walked out of this one because of the language, subjects, characters, and situations.

Michael Cera was great in Arrested Development, but just another boring teenager in this film, with a fat loudmouth Penis lover and a revenge of the nerd type dork for friends.

The scene with the cops was far too long.

In 30+ years of movie-going I have never seen such a pile of puerile, unfunny, self-indulgent nonsense.

" Superbad was a great movie, but totally unexpected in the strangest of ways.

Seth was carrying the movie and then all of a sudden he gets boring and the rest of the movie goes downhill in the middle of the movie.

McLovin character was engaging and sympathetic.

Then there is incredibly dull character who is probably supposed to be "positive hero".

Waste of your money, time and brain cells.

I started squirming from boredom during the opening credits and stuck it out, for reasons unknown, up until the midway point before I had to leave.

A friend and I were bored one day and decided on seeing a movie.

I must say, curses can work, because I quite enjoyed 40-Year Old Virgin, but in this movie, it's just pointless and makes you want to shove a soap down their throat.

I thought the first ten or fifteen minutes were the worst part of the movie .. they dragged on and on and were just profanity and teen bravado.

For those of us who are disgusted by this language, save your money and see something else.

What a waste of money!

Whenever I watch a movie i usually look for some meaning or point, but i do settle for a pointless comedy once in a while.

-s some really annoying/gross/boring scenes, weak stereotypical end, NO REALLY BIG FUNNY SCENE.

Mildly entertaining .

Superbad (2007)Rated R (crude humour/sexuality/language/drug use/some violence) A bunch of clever people have figured out that stupid, pointless teenage movies make money at the box office.

Well actually pathetic and boring is what it turned out to be.

There was a major hype around this thing, so I figured "Oh, maybe there is finally a comedy worth watching, because there haven't been any of them lately...

In fact, once the film gets past it's slow opening it has a good pace reminding me of Tom Hanks "Bachelor Party" from the 1980's in pacing.

A complete and utter waste of time.

If you mange to suffer through the boring tirade of swearing and vulgarity which adds nothing to the characters or story you will be treated to an ending where two dorks and a fat guy end up with three hotties, happens every day right!

Slow, too slow, and boring.

I'd have to say this one is more for the guys, and I thought it was a terrible waste of money.

Hilarious, never drags, always entertaining .

Had I not read lots of reviews and known that it was going to end up being a somewhat good movie, I may have left early.

Unfortunately, the performance lows are the already minimal female parts, who, unlike the believably crafted male characters, generally come across as contrived and often simply reduced to simply eye candy, though Martha MacIsaac and Emma Stone as the lust objects of the lead duo manage to give charismatic enough performances despite their disappointingly poorly written roles.

If you're into that kind of stuff, this is a movie worth watching.

The plot itself involves booze, partying, and law enforcement, and somehow works these in to make a very absorbing story.

By far the most unexpected movie for me in such a long time.
