Superbad 

Let's just say some awesomely bad cops get involved, and a mystery man from Hawaii simply called "McLovin."

It's the last party before high school ends, so it's imperative these three nerds get there, bring booze and get laid. That it doesn't quite work out is obvious -- but just how the all-important evening does play out is a fun surprise. (Let's just say some awesomely bad cops get involved, and a mystery man from Hawaii simply called "McLovin.") Sure, Greg Mottola's film (produced by current king of nerd comedy Judd Apatow) is unrepentantly vulgar (the parade of illustrated joke-penises is unrivaled in cinema history), but beneath the profanity beats the tender hearts of three wholly loveable Lowest-Men-on-Campus. Jonah Hill and Michael Cera star as the two best buds secretly brokenhearted about their impending split to different colleges, but super-nerd Christopher Mintz-Plasse steals the film blind.
