Extremely crude and sexual comedy is hilarious, stupid and a fun time for older teens

Superbad (2007) is a film following 3 awkward teens trying to get laid before collage. The film is hilarious, but is filled with extremely crude sexual jokes and strong language. VIOLENCE: MILD Slapstick/comical violence depicting a fantasy sequence where a man has his throat slit with a broken bottle, blood spills down his neck (this is for laughs), a man is punched in the face by a robber, people are lightly hit with cars on 2 occasions for laughs, a cop punches a teen, a man passes out and hits a woman in the eye on his way down, lots of mischief, reckless driving and shooting of guns (not at people), a mild fight at a party. LANGUAGE: SEVERE Strong pervasive language combined with graphic sexual remarks. 219 uses of “f*ck”, 91 uses of “sh*t”, 14 uses of "b*tch", 37 uses of "d*ck", 20 uses of "p*ssy”, around 8 uses of “c*ck” (sexually) and use of “t*t”, “f*g”, “n*gga” (in music) and variations of the words “ass”, “hell” and “damn”. SEXUAL CONTENT: SEVERE Non-stop graphic, crude and sexual content. Descriptive, crass jokes about masturbation, ejaculation, oral sex, anal sex, lubricant and condoms, dialogue relating to “the d*ck going in”, “bust a nut into my belly button”, “d*ck in the vagina”, “suck my penis” and countless other references. Towards the beginning we hear and see graphic content about pornography, we see 3 teens watching a video on the computer depicting a threesome on a bus, a topless woman and 2 others are shown in a sexual position, crude hand motions relating to ejaculation, sex, oral sex and others, an up-close shot of a girls g-string, references to “f*cking”, “getting laid”, 2 half scenes, one shows the teens undressing and getting in bed kissing heavily, the girl straddles the boy and comments about his “c*ck” and how she’s “so wet”, the other shows a teen mounted on the girl and he says “it’s in” before they are interrupted and the girl runs away. Detailed references to fetishes, getting girls drunk to have sex, we see dozens of detailed but cartoonish drawings of penises, some are on characters but none show sexual activity. Teens are shown buying porn magazines revealing a woman’s bare breasts as they compliment her “t*ts”, a teen compliments his friends mom by saying hes jealous he got to suck his moms “t*ts”, the other gets back at him but saying he sucked his dads “d*ck”. Teens visit a strip class h that says “live nude girls” but they are quickly kicked out. Countless other sex references as well. Despite all of the countless sexual references and images, older teens should be able to appreciate the humor. DRUG CONTENT: MODERATE A man is shown doing 3 lines of cocaine mostly offscreen, he is high afterwards as well. Cannabis is shown being used via bongs, heavy teen drinking and partying, lots of sneezing of alcohol, and drunkenness is planned to be used as a method for sex. 15+ for pervasive strong crude and sexual content, pervasive language and for some nudity and drug use

Superbad review

This movie has the exact same rating as “The Wolf Of Wall Street” according to Common Sense Media. It is hilarious but there are so many s*x jokes and some nudity.

NOT okay given modern sensibilities

Based in part on the Common Sense Media recommendation, I screened this movie for a party for 15 and 16 year olds. I am mortified that the kids in my home watched this misogynistic film which glorifies predatory behavior toward women. This is not the type of message any teenager should given. Please reconsider your rating!
