Movie Info

When a one-night stand that should have stayed that way has unexpected consequences, the reluctant odd couple attempts to transform their tentative relationship into a lasting love in this conception comedy. Twenty-four-year-old entertainment journalist Alison Scott (Katherine Heigl) is on the fast track to the big time, but an alcohol-fueled hookup with responsibility-shirking slacker Ben Stone (Seth Rogen) finds her professional priorities taking a back seat to having a baby. Now, as overgrown

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

Ultimately the film says that fate has a way of kicking you up a notch, if you can somehow let yourself rise to the occasion.

Although this story about a mismatched couple expecting a baby strains credibility and sometimes pushes the limits of good taste, it delivers plenty of belly laughs.

The year's best comedy; one that confirms the arrival of an extended group of talent that looks set to take the studio comedy crown from the likes of Ferrell, Stiller and Carrey.

Knocked Up isn't going to help change the world or anything, but at the very least it may help take one's mind off the relentlessly dismal headlines. I don't know what greater service a mere movie can perform these days.

A refreshingly frank, funny odd-couple comedy with engaging leads and too many belly laughs to count.

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

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

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.

The movie is a decisive breakthrough for Apatow, whose comic instincts go hand in hand with an unfashionable empathy.

It's a hysterical, well acted, and wonderful glimpse at impending parenthood from a man's perspective...

It's a movie with heart and with balls, and it knows when to use each of them.

November 3, 2012 Full Review Source:

If Apatow was seeking to make a film that's smutty and funny, but also romantic and realistic about relationships, he's succeeded admirably.

It's the funniest, smartest, goofiest, dirtiest, coolest (and longest -- over two hours, in fact) comedy so far this year.

April 4, 2011 Full Review Source:

Knocked Up is possibly the best comedy of the year.

July 6, 2010 Full Review Source: Future Movies UK | Comments (3)

A surprisingly sincere look at male-female Mars-Venusness in these 00s. It's funny alright, but not in the way you might think.

July 6, 2010 Full Review Source: Big Picture Big Sound
Big Picture Big Sound

Apatow's cockeyed Citizen Kane, merging goofball, pothead jokes with a plausible story of unshakable relationship discomfort; a broad mismatch of personalities and body shapes glued together by the cruelty of insemination.

Interesting blend of frat-house smarm and emotional incisiveness

August 27, 2009 Full Review Source: CinePassion

The film seethes with misdirected and unrecognized anger.

Knocked Up is like a Hallmark Greeting Card with crude verse. It's is an uneasy mix of ethnic humor, slacker humor, and human drama -- some is amusing, some is indulgent, and some is strained.

A pleasant enough comedy that doesn't take the "gross out" too far and presents a complex, if egotistical view of pregnancy and responsibility.

Apatow simply knows funny when he sees it, and he gives his actors' ample opportunity to plumb all possible comic depths.

August 25, 2008 Full Review Source:

Knocked Up really comes alive when it has something to say about the thorny responsibilities -- and unexpected blessings -- of adult relationships.

For all its avowed interest in life -- as in, you know, the biological imperatives of our existence -- its characters seem acquainted only with television.

May 10, 2008 Full Review Source: Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

Apatow's talent for accurately portraying his generation at their most self-absorbed doesn't quite go as far at justifying the script's patchy, haphazard conflicts at it does toward explaining the film's bloated running time.

Audience Reviews for Knocked Up

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.

I love Judd Apatow movies because the dialogue is so cuttingly, honestly rib-burstingly funny. I laughed so loud I scared my neighbour's pregnant cat into labour. Katherine Heigl and Seth Rogen are earnest, clunky and so effing good-intentioned in this movie, but it's really the critical harpy sister Leslie Mann and her burnt-out-bludgeoned-down husband (Paul Rudd, holla) who steal the show for me. The two couples present a great comparison study for the "train your partner to become who you want them to be" school vs "love and accept them for everything they are" school of relationships. Either way it's always gonna be tough, but Apatow proposes a (dangerous) theory that all problems turn out okay when you make them knuckle-bitingly, snort-out-loud hilarious. He reminds me to be bold. Here's my favourite monologue from the show:

Bouncer: It's not cuz you not hot, I would LOVE to tap that ass. I would tear, that ass, up. I can't let you in cuz you old as f***. For this club. Not, you know, for the earth. You old, she pregnant, can't have a bunch of old pregnant b****es runnin' around, that's crazy. I'm only allowed to let in 5% black people. He said that. 5%. That mean if there's 25 people here I get to let in one and a quarter black people. So I gotta hope there's a black midget in the crowd.

Feel the truth.
