Superbad tells the story of two best friends, Seth (Jonah Hill) and Evan (Michael Cera), who are taking full advantage of their last few days as high schoolers. This includes using fake IDs to purchase alcohol, so they can throw a gigantic house party that will go down in the books. However, things take an awkward turn when they cross paths with two cops, who make it their mission to show them what a “good time” actually looks like. It’s scored an 88 percent on Rotten Tomatoes for the way it balances out raunchy comedy with sincere moments about friendship and growing up, which may explain why the movie remains popular nearly 14 years later.
In addition to Hill and Cera, Superbad also stars Emma Stone (Jules), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Fogell), Bill Hader (Officer Slater), Seth Rogan (Officer Michaels), Martha MacIsaac (Becca), Aviva Baumann (Nicola), Joe Lo Truglio (Francis) and Kevin Corrigan (Mark).
The movie was directed by Greg Mottola (Keeping Up with the Joneses). Rogen wrote the script alongside Evan Goldberg (This Is the End), while Judd Apatow (Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile) and Shauna Robertson (Pineapple Express) served as executive producers.
Oh, how we’ve missed you, McLovin.
