Superbad

The best comedies on Netflix right now 11

Loosely based on Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s real-life experience in Grade 12 at Point Grey Secondary School in Vancouver during the 1990s, Superbad stars Jonah Hill and Michael Cera as teenage Seth and Evan who want to party and lose their virginity before graduating.

On the surface, the Greg Mottola-directed movie seems to be all about partying, getting wasted, and getting the girl. But beneath all those are authentic stories about friendship, finding oneself, and the end of teenage innocence. Though the movie is filled with vulgar and outrageous dialogues, it still manages to deliver a number of poignant and heartfelt moments thanks to the genuine performances by Hill and Cera.
