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.

Synopsis: Seth (Jonah Hill) and Evan (Michael Cera) have only one goal they want to accomplish before they graduate from high school and head off to collage: to lose their virginity. 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.

Content Information:

This additional information about the movie's content is taken from the notes of various Canadian Film Classification boards:

Violence:

- Infrequent weapons and hand-to-hand violence (some blood shown).

Sexual Content:

- Frequent use of crude and descriptive sexual language, references and innuendo.

- 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).

- Frequent crude portrayals of bodily functions.

Language:

- Frequent use of the sexual expletive, often in a sexual context.

- frequent use of moderate profanities and slurs.

Drugs and Alcohol:

- Portrayals of illegal drug use in a recreational context.

- Portrayals of excessive alcohol consumption involving minors.

- Some tobacco use (smoking).

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.
