Superbad is anything but a super bad movie, and if you are looking for other movies like Superbad that you might enjoy after watching it, I have a whole bunch of recommendations!

There are quite a few movies like Superbad out there, whether you like the overall plot of Superbad or the cast members themselves. The best part is that many of these movies also have sequels which will keep you busy watching hilarious comedies for hours or days! So grab your popcorn, candy, and soda and call it a night (or weekend) in!

Here are my favorite movies like Superbad:


"Ask me about my wiener!" When senior Bartleby Gaines is rejected from every college he applied for, desperate to be college-bound, Bartleby, along with his similarly rejected buddies open their own fake university to fool their parents, but end up fooling more than just their parents, as tens of hundreds of accepted students show up for class!


Not your typical zombie movie, this American horror comedy is about a zombie outbreak and a group of people seeking refuge from the zombie outbreak. Woody Harrelson “Tallahassee” stars in this film, with an undying desire to find some Twinkies. Will the group find their safe spot and will Tallahassee find his Twinkies?

Pineapple Express

"Couscous - the food's so nice they named it twice!" Pineapple Express is a hilarious stoner comedy where two men carrying a rare kind of marijuana become witness to a crime scene and end up dropping their stash only to later find out that it is traceable back to them!

21 Jump Street

Two underachieving cops, played by Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, are sent undercover back to high school, to try to bring down a high school drug ring, but to do so, they have to blend in with the popular kids.


Ever wanted to be a superhero? Well so did comic book fanatic Dave Lizewski, and he did! Kick-Ass is his name and kicking ass is his game! Despite his lack of popularity in school, Kick-Ass becomes an internet icon in this superhero comedy! But it isn't until he teams up with some extra super badasses that things really get interesting!

Pat Mills from East Chicago, Indiana on August 14, 2015:

I voted for The Hangover because I liked the way it unfolded and the twists the movie took as the friends looked for their buddy and wonder what happened in the night. The two sequels were not in the same league as the first one.
