Well, I started my week off right by watching the extremely hilarious trailer for Superbad, a summer comedy starring Michael Cera — that's George Michael Bluth, for all you "Arrested Development" fans. The quirky comedy comes out August 17 and looks to be what movies like Orange County were trying to be, but much funnier. I'm a sucker for pretty much anything Cera does or says, but even for those who don't fall down laughing by just looking at him, the movie looks really promising.
Basically, the premise appears to center on two best-best-buddies, Seth (Jonah Hill) and Evan (Cera), who have to figure out how to live without each other when it comes time to go to college. Cera is at his awkward, clueless best, and the other kid doesn't seem half bad either. Seth Rogan (of "Freaks and Geeks" and another promising summer comedy, Knocked Up) co-wrote the script and stars as a hapless police officer. Thanks to Best Week Ever for directing me to the trailer.
