    Finally a movie that lives up to its title.


    The only people that would find this flick funny are the kids trying to find ways of sneeking in. Blech.

    lol I saw it last night with some friends and I am 17 so I could get in but they wouldnt sell my friend a ticket who looks way older and never gets carded at movies. Then someone else got 2 tickets so he got in. Then they had another person at the movie door checking ticket stubs and ID's. He got stopped again but luckily some older person my other friend knew came and said he was with us.

    But anyways the movie was extremely funny but I only think it would be funny for people between 14-25

    the kids sneaking into this film wouldn't notice any of the messages in it either. hidden within all those penis jokes are actually some good messages.

    :confused: Well I just watched the trailer and it looks like Animal House 30 years too late, with any subtlety replaced by the gratuitous use of swearing and repetitive, tedious references to genitalia. Is this funny to anyone over 16?

    Yep. I'm 21 and thought it was hilarious. Great jokes throughout the whole movie. I don't understand how people can put a movie down without even seeing it. I definitely recommend it.

    This movie was one of the funniest I've seen in quite awhile. It wasn't high-brow humor, mind you, but it was hilarious, nonetheless. I'll likely be going to see this again while it's still in the theatres, something I NEVER do. GREAT movie, coming from someone who is rather tough on movies (compared to my friends, at least).

    This is a great movie. The team of Judd Apatow, Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, etc. are quickly becoming the new hot comedy group. It seems like they can't be stopped!

    It is the funniest comedy I have ever seen. I missed half the dialogue because everyone was laughing so hard.

    I've loved this group of people for a long time as well. They make me giggle a lot- and I'm 40. I can't wait to see it.

    I really want to see it, but generally hate all movie theatre audiences. I'll probably wait until it comes out on DVD like I do most movies.

    Why? Part of the experience is to see a really funny comedy in a full theatre when other people are laughing hysterically too.

    I agree, but the experience is ruined when you have 13 year olds that snuck in talking and being obnoxious. It's happened almost every single time I've seen any movie in a theatre.

    I will probably end up going mid-day on Wednesday or something when most kids should be in school.

    I've just got back from the cinema and really enjoyed it.

    Very funny with a bittersweet ending.

    I also want to give a special mention to Martha MacIsaac (Becca) for keeping a straight face during her drunken-not-quite-sex-scene. :D

    (Plus it was free, baby!)

    I found it rude.

    They could have taken the first 20 minutes of penis drawings and masturbation conversations, and just said, "Look, we only have two days left before the end of high school and we all promised ourselves that we would get laid before we graduated. We need a plan."

    And no, it is nothing like Animal House. Animal House had class.

    It's sort of like the difference between fart jokes and showing the crap coming out and videoing the pile in the toilet.

    no, "Not Another Teen Movie" was rude.

    then what would you have that missing 20 minutes be of?

    That doesnt make any sense to today's demographic. Its almost 2 generations too old now.

    Nice image!

    I disagree... I work in an engineering office and 4 of my coworkers (who all happen to be engineers) and myself (also an engineer) went to see it when it came out. we all thought it was hilarious. apparently one of my friends told me that he saw somewhere that the majority of ppl going to see that movie were older than 25 y/o. i couldn't stop laughing long enough to catch my breath.

    I think it was great.

    knocked up was great too! those guys are the funniest!

    I think it's more towards the line of people that have ever tried to find beer when underage with some friends. Which is a lot of people. I guess it's more towards males too.

    Great movie. It has been a while since I've seen a good comedy.

    It was funny, but it wasn't like the funniest thing I have ever seen. I thought that Rush Hour 3 was just as if not funnier than Superbad. That being said, it was still quite funny, but i think that it coulda been a lot better. Just my 2 cents.

    Eh, talk about a bad movie. RH3 was ridiculous. A shame to the series.

    Amazing movie!

    You'd be surprised to know that the movie has been drawing an older crowd... 25-40ish.
