Superbad Synopsis

Two co-dependent high school seniors (Hill and Cera) are forced to deal with separation anxiety after their plan to stage a booze-soaked party goes awry.

If you’re wondering who Jonah Hill is, he’s the guy who wanted you to ask him about his wiener in Accepted. If this takes off, maybe he can finally be known as something other than the guy in the hotdog outfit, which no doubt would be a great relief to him, and a great relief to me since I think Hill is actually pretty talented.

Jonah Hill co-stars in Superbad with former ‘Arrested Development’ alum Michael Cera. If you don’t recognize him, that’s probably because you’re in the vast majority of people who just didn’t think ‘Arrested Development’ was all that funny, and so refused to support it. I’m on your side on this one America.

With all the talent Superbad has involved, it has to be at least sort of good, doesn’t it? The script is co-written by Seth Rogen, who was one of Steve Carrell’s hilarious friends in The 40-Year-Old Virgin and who in the summer 2006 is going to kill as the star of Knocked Up. It’s produced by Judd Apatow, who can only be described as the Hercules of brilliant, meaningful comedy. Where Apatow and Rogen goes, I will follow.

Yep, Superbad has just about everything right going for it… except the premise which sounds like an idea for a direct-to-DVD Bachelor Party or some other random 80s movie about excessive partying. The trailers however, make the movie look like there’s more to it than just another teen partying flick, and if that’s the case Superbad could be a big hit late this summer.

Quite honestly, Superbad 2 feels to me a lot like Anchorman 2, a movie that all the people involved love to gossip and scheme about, but one that no one will ever actually commit to making

Michael Cera Teases Superbad 2? Michael Cera Teases Superbad 2?
Many people seemed to like Superbad and among them, it would seem, is the movie’s star Michael Cera. And he doesn’t just press junket like it either, he like likes it. So, for that matter, does his buddy and co-star Jonah Hill
