What is your favorite memory from high school?
Superbad is a movie about high school that actually feels like high school.
This is mostly because Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg wrote it in high school.
In fact, the writing duo started writing their script at 13 and obsessively revised it repeatedly for seven years.
Many of the scenes that ended up in the movie were events that happened in the writers’ real lives or the lives of their friends.
In a twist of fate, Superbad was so true to the high school experience it actually stopped studios from picking up the script for years.
Executives claimed the script was too dirty and needed to be cleaned up.
The script is about the friendship between three high school boys, and, well, high school boys are dirty.
To keep the authenticity, Rogen and Goldberg refused to clean up their act and kept revising the script until, finally, it was picked up.
By that time, the script had gone through so many revisions the writing had become hilariously perfect.
