Are You Superbad?
Superbad is the new movie by the people that brought you the 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up. I just happened to catch the 40-Year-Old Virgin on HBO this weekend. I did not expect to like it, but I did! It was the type of movie where you are at times embarrassed, amused and moved. I was actually cheering for the virgin by the end. From the previews, it looks like Superbad will be the same type of humor.
Superbad is the story of two lifelong friends, Seth and Evan, during their last year of high school. You can image what happens when they discover they will not be attending the same college. All of a sudden, they have to experience everything--in one night.
Seth and Evan adopt Fogell as a friend after they learn he is going to buy a fake ID. How Fogell thinks he can pass as being 21 is beyond me. You will laugh as you watch him try to use his ID in the liquor store. His fake name is McLovin; no first name, no last name, just McLovin. This leads to a classic line that I will not give away here.
The movie will not be released until August 17. In the meantime, visit the Superbad site for links to free downloads like free wall paper, buddy icons and ringtones. You can add a widget to your social networking website, like MySpace and Facebook. Check out the sound track and MySpace profiles for the characters in the movie.
There are some funny people in this movie. You will see people you know, from Saturday Night Live and Reno 911. The only newbie in the group is McLovin and you will never forget him.
