What's most memorable, most striking about Superbad is the canny evocation of male friendship in all its richness and complexity.

The movie is astonishingly foul-mouthed, but in a fluent, confident way where the point isn't the dirty words, but the flow and rhythm, and the deep, sad yearning they represent.
Side-splitting laughter, along with some powerful cringing, are likely to be audiences' dominant reactions.
Superbad is cute if you like guys who aren't even remotely bad, in a coming-of-age tale so old-fashioned the girls might just as well be wearing bloomers.
Some of the patter is funny, but the movie lacks the clever plot developments and the character nuances of a classic like "American Graffiti." And it's missing the belly laughs of earlier raunchfests "American Pie" and "There's Something About Mary."

Hell, it's as good as American Grafitti.
