"Super Bad" revolves around two co-dependent high school seniors (Hill and Cera) who set out to score alcohol for a party, believing that girls will then hook up with them and they will be ready for college. But as the night grows more chaotic, overcoming their separation anxiety becomes a greater challenge than getting the girls.
So, yes, it is very possible that, in the summer of 2010, we will see something called Superbad Express, or Bad Pineapple, or The Further Adventures of Seth, Evan, Saul, and Dale.
As this proposed idea becomes more of a reality, we will certainly let you know. As for now, it's just something being talked about.Read More

Something Superbad is coming to DVD in December.
In a story from The Digital Bits, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will be releasing Superbad on DVD December 4.Read More
I didn't even know the guy was talking to me. I turned around to see who was screaming. The guy puffed up his chest and repeated his mantra, "Yo, asshole. When you pass by me, you say 'Excuse me!' Or I'll beat yo ass." I was shocked. I told him I said the courteous words, but before I could finish my sentence, he was all over my shit. I tried to explain the effects of listening to an Ipod in a crowded store. That it's possible to miss something. And the fact that he was carrying the equivalent of a dead, bloated horse on his back. But he was just in the mood for some fisticuffs. There, in the middle of Vons. What set it off? I told him to shut up. He didn't like that. He didn't like the one-two knockout gut-punch I gave him either. Oh, I'm sure he would have come back at me had the very large security guard not grabbed him and tossed him out of the store. It was decided that he was to blame. The cops came, and he left with them. I was still sort of shook up. It was hard to continue shopping. I bought sardines in tomato sauce. I'm not sure why.
I went home and contemplated my horrible day. There, alone, staring into the dark. The ghosts no longer wanting to call themselves my friend. Then a weird thing happened. I started to think about Seth, and all of the things he goes through in Superbad. I started laughing at lines I'd heard two weeks ago in a teen movie. I pondered Seth's luck. The way he gets hit by two cars. A bat. How he, too, gets into a fight about something that wasn't really his fault. It'd been a while since I saw Superbad, but here, removed from it for about a month and a half, the film was giving me a certain kind of joy all over again. It was making me feel better about life. Seth's uphill battle reminded me of Christ's struggle with the cross in Mel Gibson's popular torture porn biopic. Which leads me to call Superbad the The Passion of the Christ of Jewish cinema. Only, these guys deal with pain and suffering in a funny, heartfelt way. Not a brutally devastating way. Don't get me wrong; I like both takes on the subject.Read More
The cast discusses the making of their Instant Classic.
It's sometimes hard to pinpoint what makes a movie so special. It's the timing, it's the cast, it's the director's ability to sell a perfect joke on screen. Still, with all the right elements in place, some movies just don't have that certain spark. A film also needs to be forged from the cosmos. All of its planets have to be aligned. It needs to be formed from something greater than the humans that created it. Superbad is just that movie. It is as good as its water cooler buzz. It is so funny that whole sentences of dialogue get swallowed by the audience. It is an instant classic. And it sits in that special realm of untouchable cinema.Read More
