Writers Getting Superbad

Here's an interview with Knocked Up star Seth Rogan and his writing partner Evan Goldberg, talking about the upcoming 'best fucking movie ever' Superbad.

Evan Goldberg: Growing up we were both influenced primarily by Calvin and Hobbs.

Seth Rogen: Yeah, that was probably the first funny thing I ever read when I was like eight.

Evan Goldberg: It was just the in-your-face sarcasm. I'd never experienced anything like that.

Seth Rogen: I went back and read it recently, and it's like he's the most cynical kid in the entire universe. Rereading it again I realized, “Wow, this is where I drew my entire sense of humor.” And then The Simpsons was as influential as anything could get humor-wise. It's been around almost our entire lives.
