First things first, why do you even need a reason from me to go see Superbad to begin with? Everyone should be going out and seeing it anyway!! However, I'm sure there are a few stragglers who are just waiting to be "convinced" and so therefore I'm here to give you the final reasons you'll need to get your ass up and out to the movie theaters to see Superbad in theaters starting tomorrow!
After wading through hundreds of interviews and other pointless media pertaining to Superbad, I've narrowed it down to the last few things you really need to care about.
Rotten Tomatoes Rating
Everyone knows Rotten Tomatoes and considers it to be the end-all official judgment of how good a movie really is. Well guess what, Superbad currently has a 92%!! You can read all the reviews here, but just know that's pretty damn good! No it's not the highest reviewed movie of the year, but for a teen sex comedy, that's incredible.
Just read a few of these very positive quotes from some reviews, the first from the New Yorker.
Greg Mottola executes Superbad with his characteristically light touch, even if it's used in the service of filthy sight gags, endless profanity and an inordinate obsession with bodily fluids.
And this second from the typically scathing critics at Variety.
The bawdy jokes score big points, but it's the rueful acknowledgement of adolescent embarrassment and humiliation that most distinguishes Superbad.
AOL's Unscripted Interview with Michael Cera and Jonah Hill
You can go out and read hundreds of interviews with the stars and filmmakers behind Superbad, but none of them are all that interesting. It's only rarely that a chat with the stars turns out to be something entertaining, and this time it's AOL's Unscripted interviews. This will give you a real idea how quirky and awkward these two guys actually are.
In similar fashion, there is another video we ran here a couple of days ago. It was an interview with Cera and Hill done by Hot Fuzz director Edgar Wright. If you haven't already watched that one too, I really suggest you do!
Cute Girls and Hilarious, Awkward Guys
You can call me out here, but every guy will always say as long as there is some eye candy on the screen, no matter at what age, they won't mind going, even if they'll deny that they're interested. I'm not saying I'm attracted to any of the girls here, but if I were still in high school, I'd be there in a jiffy. Not only are they "cute" but their male counterparts are the most awkwardly hilarious guys you'll ever find on screen or at your own high school. I'll let these photos below speak for themselves.
And as one final reminder, go watch the trailer one more time. Everyone really needs to go see Superbad - I can't encourage it enough! It's one of the best comedies of the year and is something you won't regret spending money and time to go see at your local movie theater.
