Seth and Evan set out to provide all of their high school peers with alcohol in the last great party of the year. Joining them on their “mission” is Evan’s nerdy friend, Fogell a.k.a. “McLovin” (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). Everything seems to go wrong, and the three teenagers lose all hope of making it to the party before it’s too late.
Sadly, SUPERBAD may ring true to many a high school/college experience of sex, drugs, and alcohol. The movie relies heavily on vulgar language and glorifies drug abuse and sexual promiscuity. Still, the movie has some genuine laugh-out-loud moments and even a little bit of heart. SUPERBAD sometimes feels aimless but still gets where it needs to go in the end. Without spoiling anything, the ending is very touching, and the characters learn some very important, yet very difficult, life lessons.
SUPERBAD probably won’t change your life for the better. If anything, you may never want your kids to go off to college after seeing this. Okay, maybe that’s a little extreme. . . . Just make sure your children and teenagers know the consequences of drugs and sexual promiscuity, and certainly don’t let younger viewers watch this. Glorifying sexual promiscuity and substance abuse is abhorrent.

The characters never seem to stop cursing, even when the situation does not call for it. There are also some explicit nude drawings in the movie. Just make sure your children and teenagers know the consequences of drugs and sexual promiscuity, and certainly don’t let younger viewers watch this. Glorifying the evils of sexual promiscuity and substance abuse is certainly abhorrent.
