The raunchy coming-of-age film still mostly holds up. But I may have loved it for the wrong reason. By Aisha Harris. Maybe it was the ridiculously detailed penis doodles that hooked me. In flashback, a classmate discovers one of those pictures and tells the principal — and Seth is forced to see a therapist, forbidden from eating phallic-shaped foods. Or it could have been the uber-nerdy Fogell Christopher Mintz-Plasse showing off his fake ID card, and a flabbergasted Seth and Evan dissing his choice to go by the singular name McLovin.

I quoted the movie in casual conversation. Full throttle. Every now and then I would return to the movie, and it would be mostly like old times. At some point I was troubled by the casual, unchecked homophobia peppered throughout the dialogue, an unfortunately all-too-common side effect of revisiting the things you loved in your more oblivious youth.

Not for me. At some point as a kid, I unconsciously inherited the belief that to be a girl was to be less than, and thus undesirable. The boys and men in the movies and TV shows I consumed were usually the protagonists, the ones the audience is supposed to identify with from beginning to end. Girls and women were often outnumbered and peripheral, siloed as the love interest. And so I attempted to identify with the male heroes of these stories, perhaps to the point of overcorrection.

Your film history class may only devote one session to female filmmakers for the entire semester. It was a way for me to both conform and stand out as a black girl who could love a raunchy, cartoonishly violent buddy comedy relying heavily on penis jokes. Or so my regrettable thinking went. I look back on that version of myself now and cringe. Supported by. Home Page World U.

A t first, I was really looking forward to meeting Jonah Hill. I thought he was one of the funniest things about Knocked Up , in which he played Seth Rogen's angry, nerdy friend, and his deleted scenes from that film confirm him as the movie's hidden gem. I admired his determination to break out of Judd Apatow's gang of stoner bro comedians, making him pretty much unique among that Knocked Up crew, and stretch himself with comedy-dramas such as Cyrus and The Wolf of Wall Street and straight-up dramas such as Moneyball.
