10 times Superbad was totally relatable

"We could be that mistake"

Not to make you feel old or anything – but it’s now been ten years since ‘Superbad’ first appeared on screens. That’s a decade since we were introduced to Seth, Evan and the infamous McLovin, since we all became overconfident in our fake IDs actual worth and since we were gifted with an abundance of quotes for every occasion.

But why did ‘Superbad’ become such a classic? Because of the hilarious gags and stellar cast?

No. It was because it was inherently relatable. Two slightly inept high schoolers trying to shed their teenage skin and grow up before college, taking a real look at their lives without airbrushing the fact that your coming of age is painstakingly awkward.


So to celebrate ten years of the classic – here are ten of the most hilarious, relatable moments.
