Seth (Jonah Hill) and Evan (Michael Cera) want nothing more than to lose their virginity before heading off to college. To do that, though, they need to get liquor for the big party that night. With the help of their friend Fogell, a.k.a. McLovin (Christopher Mintz), and his fake I.D., the three of them go on a hilarious chase for that elusive booze, dodging incompetent cops while attempting to reverse a lifelong losing streak in one hilarious night.

Superbad really feels like two movies; there's a "let's go party" story that maturely addresses friendship and then there's an over-the-top, off-putting story about some wacky cops. I really enjoyed the scenes dealing with the two main characters' friendship, but generally disliked any of the hi-jinks with the police. The latter scenes were of an ill-fitting brand of comedy and harshly clashed with any realism. The dialogue is consistently strong but the situational writing is lame and forced. I wouldn't discourage anyone from seeing it, but it didn't flow as smoothly as I had hoped I found it to be just a bit too choppy. Great beginning and end, very forgettable middle!
