Critic Consensus: Knocked Up is a hilarious, poignant and refreshing look at the rigors of courtship and child-rearing, with a sometimes raunchy, yet savvy script that is ably acted and directed.

[A] very funny Peter Pan-and-Wendy- get-preggers story.

[Apatow] makes responsibility and commitment funny; no mean feat.

Willamette Week

What makes most of Knocked Up work is its ability to squeeze big laughs out of real-world situations.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

Knocked Up proves that hit comedy doesn't have to dumb down for its demographic.

Radio Times

With sparkling performances from Rogen and Heigl, Apatow once again shows his sharp eye for talent and continuing knack for hits.

Paste Magazine

The jokes, which are in the absolute poorest taste, remain hilarious, while a newer, deeper humanism, sensed in momentary flashes in the earlier film, is now fully on display.

Audience Reviews for Knocked Up

Cute funny movie, just wrong on many occasions in just the right way. I had fun time with this one.

A good comedy, funny and sweet, whose first hour is so hilarious and raunchy it had me laughing real hard. After that, however, it becomes a bit irregular and stretches for too long, with some unnecessary and unfunny jokes that could have been easily left out.

If I were to rank the 10 funniest movies of the last 10 years, this would definitely be in the top 5. "Knocked Up" is the story of Ben(Seth Rogan) who has a one night stand with Allison(Katherine Heigl) and gets her pregnant. She is an aspiring TV personality for E! and he is a man child who lives with friends and loves to smoke pot. Polar opposites, but they try to make it work. The supporting cast is amazing and full of great comedic actors. Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, Jonah Hill, Jay Beruchel, Jason Segal, among others. My favorites are probably Pete(Paul Rudd) and Debbie(Leslie Mann) as a married couple with 2 kids and a lot of problems. Hell, they have a sequel coming out about them. This movie is also full of great one liners, that are still hilarious. Just goes to show that R rated comedies can be raunchy, fun, and smart. This is a modern comedy classic that holds up nicely and remains mandatory viewing for all fans of comedy.
