Essential High School Movies You Must See
Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg began to describe the story of “Superbad” when they were themselves in high school, and when the film finally screened, its crazy drifts shocked audiences. “Superbad” captures the 21st century high school experience and the superficial desires of teenagers in hilarious and precise detail, but despite its scorching character, the story is truly heartfelt. It is ultimately about two friends who do not want to leave.
Best friends Evan (Michael Cera) and Seth (Jonah Hill) spend almost every moment together, but they are expected to attend different universities after graduation. Trying to make the most of the last days of their senior year, the boys see an opportunity to find love at an upcoming party. Evan has a longtime crush on Becca (Martha MacIsaac) and, after a surprising schoolwork assignment, Seth falls in love with the popular girl, Jules (Emma Stone). The couple decide the only way to stand out is to get some booze for the party, so the boys enlist their friend Fogell (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) to get a fake ID, which accidentally reads “McLovin” .
“Superbad” gets even more wacky as Fogell is caught under the wing of two eccentric cops, Slater (Bill Hader) and Michaels (Rogen). However, “Superbad” never forgets its underlying emotion, and Evan and Seth’s last conversation is quite touching.
