Superbad (2007, USA) C-119m. ** D: Greg Mottola. Starring Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Bill Hader, Seth Rogen, Martha MacIsaac, Emma Stone. Three high school seniors are looking forward to their last party before college and intend to have fun with girls and alcohol, but their fake ID doesn't work and they go on an oddyssey through the night to get alcohol, meeting all kinds of demented characters. Comedy starts out hilarious and maintains this pitch for half an hour, but then the policemen joke is padded out over the rest of the film, which is kind of annoying. For the AMERICAN PIE crowd.
