Superbad (Greg Mottola, 2007)


Maybe because Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg wrote the script while still in high school, this teen comedy - yet another one about a bunch of scruffy hornbags seeking to lose their virginity before prom night - feels authentic. The drinking, the vomiting, the awkward sexuality, the fixation on genitalia, the burden of virginity - everything seems lifted from lived experience, not market research. And the three leads - two of whom are genuinely high-school-aged - are switched-on and note-perfect.
