SUPERBAD is a comedy film in which a group of three teenage boys set out to celebrate the end of school by illegally obtaining alcohol and attempting to have sex with female classmates. However, they gradually come to realise that there is more to becoming an adult than mere drinking and sex. The film was classified '15' for frequent strong sex references and frequent strong language.

The BBFC's Guidelines at '15' state that 'There may be frequent use of strong language' and that 'There may be strong references to sexual behaviour'. SUPERBAD contains over 150 uses of strong language and frequent strong sex references, including references to pornography.

Ultimately the characters come to question their own behaviour and attitudes. There is nothing in the film that would be likely to be novel to a person aged 15-17 and similar material has been passed previously in other '15' classified comedies such as CLERKS II.

The film also contains brief sight of drug use (cocaine and marijuana) at a party, together with some verbal references to drug taking. However, drugs are not promoted or glamorised and there is no instructional detail. Similarly, the film contains references to and sight of
