2007, dir. Greg Mottola. Raging hormones, potty humor, and male bonding run amok in Superbad, written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, and acted to perfection by millennial dweeb-icons Michael Cera and Jonah Hill. The funniest, raunchiest, most surprisingly touching movie to emerge from the Judd Apatow Bromance Industrial Complex.
