20. 'Superbad' (2007)

It's their last night to party as high-school seniors, and best buds Michael Cera and Jonah Hill are going to make the most of it: drinking, getting up the courage to make a move on their long-time crushes, indulging in the sort of gonzo teen-movie craziness that would make John Hughes vomit. At its core, however, this Judd Apatow-produced raunch-com is really about the friendship between Cera and Hill's beta bros, two guys on the verge of leaving childish things — and thanks to college, each other — behind.
