Two nerdy high-school kids, fast friends, decide that they must have sex before reaching college. Their best, and in their eyes, almost only chance lies in this cool party where they’re requested by these hot chicks to get the booze. So far, so good, but then all else doesn’t go to plan, rather goes spectacularly wrong, not just bad but ‘superbad’ !

They enlist the help of another friend, they get fake id’s, they meet mobsters, they get into fights. And they meet two hilarious cops, who clearly have a unique way of looking at things, who have a need for the limelight, a sense of humour that is politically incorrect, a desire to do things their own way.

It’s a nice film, some laugh out loud moments and genuine surprises but it kind of stopped there. Seen too many teen flicks for anything more than mild interest in the genre. And I’m probably the wrong target audience, so my comments are also ‘unfair’ in that sense. Watch if the genre interests you, its as good as such films can get is probably a fairer way of putting it.

Have you watched " Nick and Nora's infinite playlist". Also try " vicky, christina INS" if you have some time.
