Cloverleaf Radio's host The Host with the Most Jimmy Falcon welcomes Actors John Mabry and Charley Rossman to the show for the Superbad Radio Reunion: 10 Years Later!
Superbad is a 2007 American coming-of-age teen comedy film directed by Greg Mottola and produced by Judd Apatow. The film stars Jonah Hill and Michael Cera as Seth and Evan, two teenagers about to graduate high school. Before graduating, the boys want to party and lose their virginity, but their plan proves harder than expected. Written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the script began development when they were 13 years old, and was loosely based on their experience in Grade 12 in Vancouver during the 1990s; the main characters have the same given names as the two writers. Rogen was also initially intended to play Seth, but due to age and physical size this was changed, and Hill went on to portray Seth, while Rogen portrayed the irresponsible Officer Michaels, opposite former Saturday Night Live star Bill Hader as Officer Slater.
Upon release, the film received postive reviews, with critics praising the dialogue and the chemistry between the two leads. The film also proved financially successful, grossing $169 million on a $20 million budget. Since the film's release, it has garnered acclaim as one of the best comedies of the 2000’s and as one of the best high school movies of all time.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/jianetwork/support
