Knocked Up Review


Ben Stone (Seth Rogan) is a stoner website owner who meets Alison Scott (Katherine Heigl),an up and coming news anchor on E! in the Los Angeles. They get drunk and wind up spending the night together, and Alison gets pregnant. Ben is surprised to get a call a few weeks later and find out he is the father.

Reluctantly, they try and see if they are compatible (for the babyís sake). Ben is a pot-smoking guy living off the last of his insurance settlement from the BC government, trying to launch a nude celebrity website, while Alison is a compulsive, workaholic who wants to get ahead in life. They both struggle with getting to know each other, but Alison comes to the realization that they are too different and breaks up with Ben.

Paul Rudd plays Pete, Benís would-be brother-in-law with excellent comedic timing and some deadpan acting steals scenes. Director Judd Apatow also brings back Leslie Mann from 40 Year Old Virgin (the girl who was driving drunk and then threw up on Steve Carell), as Peteís wonderfully controlling, almost psychotic wife.

Most of the jokes are crude and/or graphic, like Benís fear of hitting the baby with his penis while having sex with a pregnant Alison, and the birth scene is truly not for the faint of heart. Still, Apatow band of loveable losers (Benís friends) and the main characters make for one very funny movie. Itís longer than usual for a comedy (over 2 hours), but the pacing and timing are fine. This could be the funniest movie of the summer. The only thing stopping it from being a box office winner is its 18A rating, which will keep most teens away.
