— P R E V I E W –In movies and television programs, Judd Apatow has embraced both the outrageous and the emotional. As the writer and director of the feature films Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin, the producer of the blockbuster comedies Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby and Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, and the creator of the acclaimed television series “Freaks and Geeks” and “Undeclared,” Apatow has developed a reputation for stories that are equal measures sentimental and unrefined.

The latest film from Apatow as a producer is no exception. Superbad is a coming-of-age cautionary tale about two socially inept teenage boys about to graduate high school. Theirs is a ridiculously dependent friendship—but now, they've gotten into different colleges and are forced to contemplate life apart. Evan (Michael Cera) is sweet, smart, and generally terrified. Seth (Jonah Hill) is foul-mouthed, volatile, and all-consumed with the opposite sex. This is the story of their misguided attempts to approach the objects of their affections in one panic-driven night…that awful, humiliating night you cherish for the rest of your life.

Superbad is directed by Greg Mottola and written by Apatow’s longtime collaborators, Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg. Apatow first collaborated with Rogen when he was an actor on “Freaks and Geeks”; soon after, Rogen submitted his first screenplay (written with his best friend, Evan Goldberg) to Apatow as a writing sample, and the producer was impressed. That screenplay was Superbad.
