McLovin of Hawaii

We caught the trailer to Judd Apatow’s next film, “Superbad,” when we slipped out to see his current release, “Knocked Up.” Which was brilliant. But the “Superbad” trailer — in addition to promising another winner — also included a wonderful Aloha State shoutout.


One of the characters gets a fake ID, and the issuing state is Hawaii.

“McLovin” is his chosen name, whom a friend incredulously describes as “a 25-year-old Hawaiian organ donor.” Even better, the address block on the Hawaii driver’s license reads:

892 Momona St.
Honolulu, HI 96820

“Momona” being the Hawaiian word for “fat.” No doubt someone on the writing staff found a Hawaiian dictionary for that subtle gag. And no, there is no Momona Street in Honolulu. There is a Momona Place in Waianae, though.

Check out the official trailer here.
