In 2007, Our Patron Saint, Judd Apatow, once again collaborated with his Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared star, Seth Rogen, but this time, Rogen wrote the script that Apatow produced. The film was “Superbad”, which was directed by Greg Mottola and starred Jonah Hill and Michael Cera.
The movie follows friends Seth (Hill) and Evan (Cera) as seniors in high school spending an evening in that all-American teenage boy activity: Finding beer to impress girls. Their friend Fogell has a fake ID, but gets picked up by the cops (played by Rogen and Bill Hader) leaving Seth and Evan to find their own hooch and make it to the party in time to get their girls. The film is one of those movies that will be quoted by teenage boys everywhere for generations, which is entirely appropriate because according to trusted news source Wikipedia, Rogen and co-writer Evan Goldberg began working on the script for “Superbad” when they were thirteen years old.
Here are a few of our favorite scenes:
