I went to see "Superbad" expecting it to be a rather mindless, obscene comedy geared toward teenage boys, and it was, but it was also really interesting on a couple of other levels. Most of us are familiar with the "hetero-lifemate" concept from Kevin Smith's films. "Superbad" is another movie that depicts a homo-social relationship in a more enlightened manner. Feminism also plays an important role in the movie. I don't want to give anything away, but the ancient idea of getting girls drunk and fooling around with them is given a modern, I'd say, feminist, twist in "Superbad."
