Superbad? It’s not quite that bad

For a film about adolescence, it’s somewhat poetic that it’s dragged out just that bit too long.

There were two main storylines crammed into one film, and they never seemed to mesh – even when they met up it was a marriage of plot-point convenience.

The Mclovin storyline was much better, mainly because I found it less painful to watch (having never larked around suburban America with a couple drunk cops), but also because it seemed much more joyful and less… bitter? The main story just left me squirming.

Rating: 6/10
