The-Story-of-How-Superbad-Was-Born

In 1999, a teen comedy came out that pushed the boundaries of how appropriate a teen comedy had to be. We mean, Jim fucked a pie. Then, a little less than a decade later, another movie came along, looked at the boundary set by American Pie, laughed, and defecated all over it. Superbad rewrote the rules, left us with a collection of quotable lines, and launched the careers of a handful of actors. Now, 10 years after the teen comedy hit theaters, the reporters at The Ringer have taken a deep dive into the creation of the film. From the writing sessions Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg held, to the tremendous audition by Christopher Mintz-Plasse for the role of McLovin, the piece gives you the whole story of how Superbad came to fruition. Read it and then go watch the movie for the thousandth time.
