Many will tell you that comedy is subjective. Many others (and probably in the very comment section of this article) won't even bother opening the link to this write-up/video, and just contest the headline with some other bullshit pick of theirs. 

One individual, however, backs Superbad as the ultimate millennial comedy, and even makes a pretty compelling case for why in their breakdown. And yes, we're pretty inclined to back him on every point.

To summarize very briefly, key reasons include:

  • Being consistently funny throughout
  • Having a steady stream of hilarious escalation
  • The fact that it doesn't go for the cheap laughs
  • The fact that is doesn't resort to bare-titted raunchiness 
  • The well-defined characters
  • Use of jokes to explore character rather than cram in a line
  • The authentically awkward touch
  • Depicting late-teen life in a relatable and genuine manner
  • The "surprisingly tender" coming-of-age story
  • The bittersweet bro ending 
  • The McLovin ID scene (no question)

Watch the full video above to find out why Superbad is the greatest millennial comedy of all time.
