SUPERBAD
August 29, 2015  | By David Bianculli

Comedy Central, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg wrote this script, about two geeky friends navigating the last weeks of high school, when they were in high school. It took a few years, until Rogen was one of the stars on Freaks and Geeks, for him to work up the courage to give his script to one of that show’s collaborators, Judd Apatow, who backed this movie comedy in 2007. By then, actor Rogen was too old to play one of the lead characters, so he played a cop instead. The stars? Jonah Hill and Michael Cera – playing characters named, respectively, Seth and Evan. Also starring: Bill Hader and Emma Stone. Greg Mattola directs, and worked with this young ensemble to make a movie that was anything but Superbad.
