The geek comedy "Superbad" was surprisingly popular in its opening weekend, racking up $31.2 million in the U.S. and Canada and putting Hollywood squarely on pace for a record summer at the box office. Starring Jonah Hill and Michael Cera, the loser-teens-on-the-make comedy is the latest R-rated mixture of raunch and heart from producer Judd Apatow, whose hits include "Knocked Up" and "The 40-Year-Old Virgin."

Was there anything to be learned from a second viewing of "Superbad," a movie that is not only crude and lewd but also makes more casual mention of the male sexual organ within two hours than Alfred Kinsey did in a lifetime?
