Monday, June 11, 2007

SUPERBAD (2007) **** Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Bill Hader, Seth Rogen, Emma Stone, Martha MacIsaac, Aviva, Stacy Edwards, Joe Lo Truglio, Kevin Corrigan, Dawn Morrow, David Krumholtz, Clement Blake, Erica Vittina Phillips, Brooke Dillman. (Dir: Greg Mottola)Hip To Be Square: One of The Year's Funniest Films; Hilarious – I'm "McLovin' It!!" Every generation gets their American GRAFFITI and the MySpace kids get theirs in one of the funniest films of the year, a howlingly hilarious look at a pair of high school senior buddies who face an uncertain future when they will be going to different colleges come fall.The two pals, Seth (Hill, best known for last year's funfest ACCEPTED and this summer's forthcoming KNOCKED UP) and Evan (Cera of the late, great Fox sitcom "ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT"), have known each other since kindergarten and on the cusp of high school graduation, with summer approaching and the need to hook up with someone...

6/10: Superbad
Wednesday, January 30, 2008

From the creators of The 40-Year-Old Virdin and Knocked Up (out the same year) I was expecting this to be another great teen comedy similar to American Pie, but this wasn't what I had in mind. To me it was a bit too random, and more like trying to copy American Graffitti, i.e. all events happening in one night. But there are still some good chatty and giggly moments to be had. Basically best friends Seth (Jonah Hill) and Evan (Michael Cera) are nearing their last weeks at high school, and they are never seen at popular kids' parties, but they get lucky. Only thing they need to do, with the help of their nerdy friend Fogell (introducing Christopher Mintz-Plasse), with his new fake ID (with adopted name "McLovin") is get plenty of alcohol to bring. So the action starts when Fogell first steps into a liquor store, cops Officer Slater (Bill Hader) and Officer...

9/10: Super Good

Superbad (2007): Dir: Greg Mottola / Cast: Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Christopher Mintz-Plasse; Emma Stone, Seth Rogen: Surprisingly hilarious teen comedy that despite its preference for toilet humour, it is done with wit and intelligence. It transcends those thoughts and actions of our youthful desires. Greg Mottola's film stars foul mouth Jonah Hill and timid Michael Cera who risk much to achieve booze for a party in hopes of bedding a couple of girls. Setup stems perhaps from experience but structure is basically one failed booze steal after another until it reaches a surprisingly acceptable conclusion. Hill is terrific in his foul mouth demeanor as he sets his sights on one goal and risks much to achieve it. Cera is more reserved yet also discovers young love. Christopher Mintz-Plasse pretty much dominates the film as nerdy Fogell whose fake ID contains the name McLovin. Bill Hader and Seth Rogen steal scenes as two inexperienced cops out to relive...

6/10: Superbad is an uneven teen-sex comedy that still entertains
Friday, September 21, 2007

After about a month of playing theatres, I finally got to see Superbad with my friend after seeing the other movies that had come out that we wanted to see. My friend liked it though he thought it had too much profanity. I didn't have a problem with the language but I did think the funny stuff came in little doses between several scenes that dragged. I liked the performances of Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, and Chris Mintz-Plasse as the high school seniors trying to get laid two weeks before graduation as well as the slacker cops played by Bill Hader and the movie's co-writer Seth Rogen. But their performances weren't enough to make this a hilariously funny movie like I usually expect from producer Judd Apatow who had no hand in writing this movie like he had in his previously very funny directorial outings, The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up. Still, despite...

6/10: Quite effing funny apart from effing Seth
Sunday, January 25, 2009

I'm cross with this film. It has the makings of a really good teen comedy. But there are two things which completely spoil it.One is the incessant foul language. It is completely unnecessary, adds nothing, and after a while it got on my nerves. The sex references are part of the story and didn't bother me at all, but the F word is simply used as a meaningless punctuation sound interjected into nearly every sentence uttered by nearly every character.The other was the character of Seth. I liked every character in the film - even the two idiot cops - except for odious, mouthy, obnoxious, self-centred, offensive, single-mindedly stupid Seth.I'm not sure how much of this movie was scripted and how much was improvised, but the character of Seth drops this film by two grades and the bad language by a further one. So if you don't mind non-stop pointless bad language...
