Superbad is probably a good way to describe the taste of
humour on show here, from the Judd Apatow school of filmmaking which previously produced the movie's The 40-Year-Old Virgin & Knocked Up.
Evan, Seth and Fogell (Cera, Hill & Mintz-Plasse,
respectively) are a trio of foul-mouthed high school teenagers who plan one last booze-fuelled weekend before graduation. With the help of Fogell's fake Hawaiian driving licence on which his
name is McLovin', they hope to buy alcohol for a classmate's house party, but their plans go awry when they are separated and "McLovin'" is taken in by a pair of incompetent police
It's a fair assessment of the behaviour of teenage boys no
matter the generation without going too much over the top. The filmmaking style allows for a lot of ad-libbing which is where the majority of memorable one-liners materialise. It won't be
found funny by everyone and will be most appreciated by the male side of the audience, and most certainly by those around the same age as the main group of characters.
