Funny Offensive

Monday, while I was still back in PA, we caught "Superbad" during $5 night at the SouthSide Works Cinema. The 10:05 p.m. show (one of two at that time that sold out) was packed with college-aged young people.

It was a great crowd with which to see this Judd Apatow/Seth Rogan & crew production (who also brought us "Knocked Up" earlier this summer.)

The obligatory disclaimer: This is a bad, bad, bad movie. It's raunchy, vulgar, inappropriate and offensive on all kinds of levels. It's got violence, drug use, underage drinking, premarital sex and other morally offensive themes -- earning it a very deserving "O" rating from the USCCB and a skeptical look from Katie over at Waldie's World.

BUT, it's also probably the funniest and most entertaining movie I've seen all year. Michael Cera and Jonah Hill (pictured in the movie poster) are very good as the high school friends trying to well ... you know.

Keep the kids away from this movie. Adults with a sense of humor -- check it out.
