Knocked Up

Writer/director Judd Apatow's follow up to The 40 Year Old Virgin. With a penchant for the aptly titled, his second feature as director is about pot-headed oaf Ben (Seth Rogen) and hot, entertainment TV presenter Alison (Katherine Heigl), who find themselves expecting after a one night stand. 

Being both good people at heart, they try to make the situation work. This involves getting along with each other, and their respective 'families' - Ben's stoner friends, and Alison's blunt sister (Leslie Mann) and sister's detached husband (Paul Rudd).

Ultimately, what makes Knocked Up a terrific film--one of the year's best, easily--is its relaxed, shaggy vibe; if it feels improvised in places, that's because Apatow trusts his actors enough to let them make it up as they go, like the people they're playing...

Uproarious. Line for line, minute to minute, writer-director Judd Apatow's latest effort is more explosively funny, more frequently, than nearly any other major studio release in recent memory...

Good fun, probably more so for those who have been through the whole baby thing. It's a little lengthy, and does have a tendency to slip into pregnancy cliches, but ultimately it's a refreshing, amusing, and surprisingly touching comedy...

Funny, but its lacking at the core. Judd Apatow's comedy takes the guy's side of things, but how does the woman feel about all of this?..

Believe the hype, Knocked Up is one of the funniest films of 2007. It's too early in the year to crown it the supreme funniest title, but save for something so funny your head explodes in the theater, I think it'll take the title by year's end. Seth Rogen, we web slackers salute you!..

I reckon, in about a decade, we might look back on Knocked Up and call it a "comic masterpiece".

For now, just grab the least easily offended of your friends and go see it...

The nice thing about Apatow's comedies is that he recognises the human element, avoids easy stereotypes, and works in some character development amid all the funny stuff...

A good tale for the Noughties

A well-acted and watchable comedy which, given its massive sleeper success, will act as a barometer by which future comedies will undoubtedly be matched up against. The atypical ebb and flow relationship dynamics of all Hollywood comedies are still there, but made less annoying by a frank and syrup-free approach.

Went along to the see this movie because Katherine is hot. I remember laughing all the way through, but by the next day the movie was but a distant memory.

The best comedy in an age!

This was so funny... I loved it and will see it again. It's just better than most films... the actors are interesting and not your typical main actors. The story is real basic but for laugh out loud funnies don't go past this!

men are from mars women are from venus!

This movie really shows the differences between the sexes in a funny, poignant, bitter-sweet way. Women will really appreciate the 'pain' of giving birth, worrying about their 'private parts ever recovering' whereas our counterparts are just 'boys and their toys' even when they are married with children. Ben is delightful and not a typical American 'Dream...
