By nature, teen comedies appeal to the lowest common denominator of minds due to rampant sex, excessive alcohol consumption, and perverted dialogue. When done right, though, teenager flicks can reach a certain level of vulgar Zen, and there's no greater example than Superbad.
Line for line, its three main characters-Seth (Jonah Hill), Evan (Michael Cera), and the almighty McLovin (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)-discuss the finer points of teen life with sharp and rapid-fire wit. Bringing adult humor to the mix are co-writer Rogen and Bill Hader, having a blast as two of the most inept cops imaginable. Superbad set the bar sky-high for teen comedies to come, and it's yet to be topped.
