Overview

The official book tie-in to the hilarious blockbuster film, including the complete screenplay, movie stills, and outrageous drawings that millions of fans will recognize from the film.

From producers Judd Apatow and Shauna Robertson (The 40-Year-Old Virgin), screenwriters Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen, and director Greg Mottola comes Superbad, 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 topic of human sexuality. They are joined by their nerdy pal Fogell (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), whose fake ID as "McLovin" sets everything into motion. This is the story of their misguided attempts to reverse a lifelong losing streak with the ladies in one panic-driven night . . . that awful, humiliating night you cherish for the rest of your life.
