I want to officially change my last name to McLovin.
If you’ve seen Superbad, you know exactly what I’m talking about. The R-rated teenage buddy/angst movie is one of the funniest things I’ve seen at the theaters in years. The last time I laughed this hard at the movies we were all being introduced to Ben Stiller as a comedic lead as he fawned over Cameron Diaz’s Mary.
The tale of Evan and Seth is funny from the get-go, although the first 20-minutes seem intent on just shocking and disturbing the viewer a little too much. It’s as if the film-makers decided that they wanted anyone not cool enough to enjoy this ride to walk out of the cineplex before the good stuff started.
Now if you’re easily offended, don’t even bother trying to make it through this movie. You won’t be able to handle it, there are too many anatomy jokes that will leave you squeamish.
But does it ever get good. The tale of Evan and Seth and their quest for alcohol to bring to a cool chick’s party is hilarious. Their even nerdier buddy, Fogel, lands a fake ID and the hilarity begins. On that ID he decides that he is worthy of just one name in life, and the license reads simply “McLovin.” I have a new hero and that is the name of which he goes by.
Over the next 90 minutes McLovin goes on the wildest night of his life, riding shotgun with two insane cops and a drunk that he single-handedly aprehended. All the while Seth and Evan attempt to get their hands on some booze, that McLovin has in the back seat of the cop car, while getting into insane situations.
I can’t recommend Superbad highly enough for those that like to laugh. It’s supergood and superfun.
As for the Sox, another win and another game gained. You have to love that.
Being at the movies, I didn’t see too much of the ballgame. I only saw the final inning, and Papelbon was lights out. Other than that I can’t do much breaking down, I just know that the good guys won and that for his $86,000 JD Drew was 1-for-4 with a run scored.
For Papelbon, his save was No. 30 on the season. Believe it or not he became the first Red Sox pitcher to ever save 30 two years in a row.
On the other coast, the Yankees got hammered by the Angels. They were killed by an 18-9 score as Garrett Anderson had a career night, knocking in 10 all by himself.
The lead’s up to six. I can’t wait to see Amish and Akku later today.
When in Japan, stay away from arm-wrestling machines.
You see, here’s the thing, Eli Manning is an idiot. How can he question Tiki Barber’s heart when Tiki was the reason that team made the playoffs last year while Eli was making the Manning face and throwing the ball to the other team.
