Comments: Here’s the thing you have to understand. My wife and I really enjoy things that are funny, even if they are revolting. Some people enjoy watching horror movies and are not bothered by the blood and gore. We enjoy comedies and are not bothered by the drugs, language, and sex. However. The movie must be funny. Otherwise, it’s just a waste of our time, and there’s no reason to put up with the crud. We enjoyed Harold and Kumar. We enjoyed Borat. We even enjoyed Knocked Up. Superbad we did not enjoy. It’s vulgar, sure. But mainly it’s not funny, and the only reason we finished it was because both Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill are usually hilarious. Not this time. And remember, if there are any Christians who had a chance of enjoyiong this movie, it would have been us. Try again, fellas.
