Superbad is one of those iconic films that no matter how many times you watch it, it just gets better. It’ll be studied for generations and kids will have to write about it in their Cinema Studies courses. What made it special for most of us, however, was that we were either in high school or college when it came out, so the themes (like wanting to get laid and wanting to get laid) were oh so relevant to us. We were living the shitty house parties, the 3/4 blow jobs, and the vomiting all over our friends’ comforters.
Whenever we turn on the movie, we’re taken back to a simpler time when we thought drinking warm vodka out of water bottles was cool and that no one could tell our IDs were fake. Still, those days are long behind most of us (sad!), and now we can only revisit them from the coming-of-age movies we grew up with and by drinking tequila when we have days where we truly hate ourselves. And what’s even more shocking than the one gray hair you noticed last week or the fact that most of us are more likely to get married than ever do a body shot again, is that the movie that propelled us into the best years of our lives, just turned a decade old.
And in honor of Superbad having been released ten years ago yesterday, Seth Rogen answered questions and tweeted facts about the film that we’ve wondered for a long ass time.
He was wrong, of course. We all care.
And then, he went on to answer the burning questions every single attention-seeking person on Twitter had.
Finally, he gave a little love to his bestie and co-writer, the pair of which has gone on to create beautiful, beautiful movies together.
If there’s one thing that makes getting older better, it’s knowing that no matter how shitty everything else is, we always have the raunchy-ass movies that lubed our entrance into semi-adulthood to keep us young..
