Evan (Michael Cera) and Seth (Jonah Hill) are best friends since kindergarten and are in their final year of school about to leave for college. However, they will be separated in college since they will not be in the same college as the latter one is not as smart as Evan.

Jules (Emma Stone) is hosting a party and asks Seth to bring alcohol and he agrees, as their mutual friend, Fogell, (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) has recently acquired a fake ID. Meanwhile, Evan agrees to go to the party after his long time crush Becca (Martha MacIsaac) invites him to the party as well despite the initial “maybe” after Seth is spat by one of the bullies who warn Seth and Evan not to go to the party.

After school, Seth and Evan find out that Fogell is an idiot because he gets a fake ID with just one-name and it’s "McLovin". Fogell argues that he initially wants to choose "Mohamad" as it is the most common name but ends up choosing "McLovin" instead.

While buying the alcohol, Fogell is hit in the face by a hooded robber and the police arrive. The two officers, Michaels (Seth Rogen, yes, one of the writers of the film) and Slater (Bill Hader), who seem to be fooled by the fake ID, offer Fogell a lift to the party.

When Seth and Evan see the police officers talking to Fogell, they think he is busted and decide to find their own alcohol instead. Seth is accidentally hit by a car and as compensation, the driver (Joe Lo Truglio) agrees to take them to a party, where they reason they can take all alcohol they need.

When arrive at the party, Francis the driver is seen as not welcome to the party and is forced to leave. Evan bails on Seth, as Seth is left alone to smuggle the alcohol they need. As the party has started, Seth is pushed into the dance crowd and Gaby (Marcella Lentz-Pope) flirts with Seth on the dance floor without knowing Gaby is Mark’s fiancee. Seth is laughed by the others when they see blood stain of Gaby on his pants. When Mark knows about Seth’s dancing with his fiancee, he tries to start a fight but accidentally hit another party-goer instead as Seth dodges. As a fight erupts between Mark and some drug addicts, Seth and Evan escape together with laundry detergent containers that have been filled with beer.

Meanwhile, the police officers display many instances of incompetence, including drinking on the job, unnecessary use of police lights, and improper use of a gun. They quickly become friends, referring to Fogell as McLovin.

Seth and Evan get into an argument about their friendship when Fogell, officer Slater, and officer Michaels happen to hit Seth with their police car. As officer Slater prepares to bust the teens to cover up his own blunder, the boys flee into the dark. The three finally arrive at Jules’ party with the alcohol.

At the party, a drunken Becca nearly seduces Evan as they end up in bed but ends up vomiting. A drunken Seth attempts to explain his feelings for Jules, but ends up head-butting her when he passes out on her, resulting in a black eye. Fogell successfully seduces Nicola (Aviva Farber) with his fake ID and gets her into bed, only to have officers Slater and Michaels interrupt. Seth, realizing Evan is passed out on a couch, carries his friend away and back to Evan’s house. They reconcile, realizing they actually love each other. Officers Slater and Michaels reveal to Fogell that they were aware of his fake ID all along, but they wanted to show him they were normal guys too. They return him a favor for blocking his chance with Nicola by pretending to haul him off to jail in front of the entire party to boost his popularity. When the bully who spat on Seth sees Fogell, he tries spitting on him too but ends up spitting on official Slater, who in return knocks him out with his baton.

The following day, Evan and Seth run into Becca and Jules at the mall as they are shopping for Evan’s comforter for his college. Seth ends up taking Jules to get cover up for her eye, while Evan takes Becca off to look for comforters. The two guys take a long, private stare at each other before they part ways with their new girlfriends.

My ratings: 8 out of 10. Definitely not superbad, but the movie super kick ass!
