I saw Superbad this afternoon.
Can I start out by sharing my confusion about a certain preview? Thanks. When H and I went with our 12-year-old niece and 9-year-old nephew (and their dad, H's brother) to The Simpsons Movie, rated PG-13, one of the previews shown beforehand was for Good Luck Chuck. The premise of the movie, according to this preview, is that if Dane Cook sleeps with a woman, she will marry the next guy she sleeps with. So women are lining up to sleep with Dane Cook because they know that the next guy after Dane will be their husband. Cut to a montage of sex scenes. Really explicit sex scenes. Then Dane meets Jessica Alba and falls in love. He really, really wants to sleep with her but knows that if he does, they'll break up and she'll marry someone else. Cut to several scenes of Dane and Jessica almost having sex. Cut to me trying to cover my nephew's eyes and ears because OH MY GOD.
So we go to Superbad, rated R, and there is also a preview for Good Luck Chuck. Except in this preview, the premise of the movie is that Dane and Jessica are dating, but Jessica has extremely bad luck. Cut to a montage of wacky accidents where Jessica keeps accidentally hurting Dane. The end. Why show the sexually explicit preview before The Simpsons, a CARTOON movie, but then show a light romantic comedy preview before Superbad, a raunchy movie about boys trying to get laid? I do not understand.
P.S. Good Luck Chuck does not look good, based on either preview.
So, anyway, Superbad. It was good. Not as good as Knocked Up, but still funny. I think I would like this movie better if I were a boy or liked weiner jokes more, but since I am not and do not, I would give this movie 3 out of 5 stars.
