Greatest Teenage Comedy Since American Pie

  • Feb 5, 2008
Rating:
+5
Easily the title of my review can't complement this movie enough and neither can the star rating system. This film is without a doubt the funniest teenage comedy I've seen... Ever, in fact it's even better than the original American Pie. The story tells of Seth and Evan two High School seniors who attempt to host one of the biggest beer bashes their town has ever seen and on a side note they hope to score.

During the movie the boys come across a problem with their party, they're not old enough to buy beer so they have to get their friend Fogell to get a fake ID and buy the beer for them. This is the historical moment where Fogell transforms into McLovin the 25 year old, Hawaiian organ donor. From start to finish this film is packed with some of the most memorable one liners that you have heard packed into the single motion picture experience.

A little warning for you all is that this film pulls no punches.(Well maybe one and Fogell got the brunt) It is simply crude in every aspect of these one liners that I know you will find just as hysterical as I did. There is swearing but only to a point where you start to become offended but then realise this is all leading to something better.

Get this movie, I guarantee you will love every second of it.

Despite being dorky and potty mouthed, each has a major crush on a babe, and …

Pros: It has its funny moments.     Cons: That much swearing?  Seriously?  *cue eye roll*     The Bottom Line: Slightly amusing, but could have easily been better.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie's plot. I hate it when movie trailers trick you.  At least my sister warned me first so I knew what to expect.  I now extend that same warning to you.    Seth and Evan …

Pros: hysterically funny, totally outrageous teenage odyssey     Cons: not for everyone      The Bottom Line: Superbad... Can you dig it?     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie's plot. Seth (Jonah Hill) and Evan (Michael Cera) have been friends throughout their early school years, and now they are graduating high school. Evan has made it into Dartmouth, but Seth has not. It's put a bit of strain on their friendship, …
