Superbad, directed by Greg Mottola, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2007 while The Assault On Reason by Al Gore was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Monkey Life. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Case Closed: The Mirapolis Investigation or Avencast: Rise of the Mage.
