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

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

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.

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.

Knocked Up is possibly the best comedy of the year.

For all of its filthy tirades, Knocked Up is perhaps one of the more sentimental and honorable morality tales this year, featuring more educational value and entertainment than all of the after school specials in the world.

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

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

[A] very funny Peter Pan-and-Wendy- get-preggers story.
Wesley Lovell
Cinema Sight
September 30, 2008
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.

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