Because we usually only review G, PG, and PG-13 movies at Parent Previews, we did not review this title. For your convenience, we have provided some brief information about the film's synopsis and content.

And they will go to any length -- even if it's illegal --to accomplish their objective.p>Cast: Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Bill Hader, Seth Rogen.
This additional information about the movie's content is taken from the notes of various Canadian Film Classification boards:

- Portrayal of sexual activity involving minors.
- Partial or full frontal nudity in a brief sexual situation.
- Depictions of print and screen pornography (breast and buttock nudity shown).

Of Special Note: This movie was produced by the same creative team behind Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin. However, unlike their pervious sex comedies, Superbad features teen-aged characters. This may draw more minors into theaters to view this MPAA R-rated film.>
DVD Release Date: December 4, 2007
Superbad is releasing to DVD in an Unrated 2-Disc Extended Edition, which means the home version of this movie has the potential to offer more content than did the theatrical version.
