Superbad 
"Superbad" by Yojimbo
3/4 stars

I hate contemporary American comedy. Fact. So this combination of High School coming of age, gross out comedy and night in hell formulae is the kind of movie I'd usually crawl naked through broken glass to avoid. But it's actually really, really funny! There are loads of hilarious lines, particularly involving Jonah Hill's brilliant tirades against his fellow nerds ("Nobody's had a hand job in cargo shorts since 'Nam!"). I loved the cops as well (look out for the extended "semen" speech on the DVD extras!) and not only is it genuinely witty rather than relying on cheap, dumb "laughs" as most of these films do, it actually has some insightful and heart warming moments towards the end, even more so than the empty celluloid of the likes of Garden State. I don't really think it's got much in the way of re-watch value, but I really wasn't expecting to enjoy this so it was one of the nicest surprises I've had in a while. And the soundtrack is brilliant!
