Barbara (Over/underated: a music podcast with Babs and Fran) and Sophie (It’s An S Pod Thing!) join Flixwatcher remotely to review Babs choice Superbad.
Superbad is a 2007 coming of age comedy starring Jonah Hill, Michael Cera and
Christopher Mintz-Plasse as school friends Seth, Evan and Fogel (McLovin), directed by Greg Mottola and produced by Judd Apatow.
Determined to lose their virginity before going to college Seth and Evan get invited to Jules party and promise to buy the booze with Fogel’s fake McLovin ID. Of course nothing goes to plan and McLovin is kidnapped by two police officers (Bill Haded and Seth Rogen) while Seth and Evan end up at a bizarre house party in a quest to secure the booze that will impress the girls enough for them to sleep together.
It’s difficult to view Superbad’s main narrative of getting girls drunk enough to sleep with Seth and Evan and the endless stream of homophobic jokes as being harmless and of it’s time – it’s questionable how funny it was is 2007. That said Jonah Hill is still brilliant and there are some painfully accurate moments of teenage male friendship to just about redeem it.
In light of being viewed in 2020 scores for Superbad from Flixwatcher and guests were pretty even and everyone was in agreement – averaging a three for recommendability to score 3.25 overall.
