Saw "Superbad" again on Friday and...

My audience ate it up fully and completely.

But I'm saying it here and now: "Superbad" is this summer's "Wedding Crashers"--- a wildly bloated buddy comedy that has its moments and a rapid-fire starmaking performance at its center, but runs about 40 minutes too long, contains far too much extraneous material that isn't funny at all, and completely pales in comparison to a film written and directed by Judd Apatow released in the same summer. Your thoughts?

Sorry for the lack of updates in the last week, but in the coming week I will be attempting to post reviews of Rod Lurie's "Resurrecting the Champ," John Turturro's "Romance & Cigarettes," Peter Berg's "The Kingdom," a semi-review of Rob Zombie's "Halloween" and an as-yet-unconfirmed filmmaker interview.
