Knocked Up Reviews

When Canses Were Classeled

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.

Knocked Up positions itself as this summer's 40 Year Old Virgin. But it's actually this summer's Jersey Girl, a tone-deaf skip down parenthood lane for a generation that grew up on bong hits, blogging and supposedly safe sex.

Three Movie Buffs

Maybe I'm being a little harsh on this movie, because there are a couple of funny scenes here and there, but they are so outweighed by the ones that bored me silly, they're not the ones that I remember.

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.

Stop Smiling

If Judd Apatow is going to set the gold standard for American screen comedy, it's only natural to start expecting more.

Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

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

Austin Chronicle

Like most of Apatow's work, Knocked Up walks a perilous line between sarcasm and sentimentality, and though it's extremely funny in bursts, the movie flirts once too often with schmaltz before toppling into melodrama in its third act.

[C]elebrat[es] as charming and inevitable and amusing and sweet what anyone who is that apparently rare specimen -- an actual, genuine grownup -- should be decrying as deplorable.

Has some sporadic laughs, but Ben and especially his roommates are just too gross to be the kind of charming free spirits Apatow thinks they are.

It's not that Knocked Up is misogynistic -- if anything, Apatow is uxorious to a fault, scrupulously respectful of chicks and the chick stuff they do. He just doesn't seem to get exactly what that stuff is.

This film is every man's wet dream. What woman wouldn't want to have a one night stand with a drunken, fat, vulgar, irresponsible, dirty looking slob?

The film simply can't and doesn't live up to the lofty expectations created by its "Virgin" predecessor.

Knocked Up is so enamored of Ben and his insouciant charm that it fails to wonder what it must feel like for the girl.

Given that I like everyone involved, it is puzzling to me that I did not enjoy it, but such is life.

Funny? Sometimes. Hilarious? Not so much. It's a druggie comedy that plays like the bloated brother of the crisper and cuter The 40 Year Old Virgin.

There's no doubt director/writer Apatow is supplying a national service by allowing the inept to feel adequate about themselves.

Though some, including the filmmakers, might find this sort of material smart and real, others might consider it middlebrow and not particularly representative of the complex and interesting people they know, some of whom are even men.

One Guy's Opinion

Another helping of the combination of romantic sweetness and slob comedy that made The 40-Year-Old Virgin such a smash...the raunchiness too often overwhelms the charm.

It's a very funny 90-minute movie, trapped in a 129-minute movie that has many, many dead spots and unfunny patches.

The movie gets a lot of mileage from the boys' bonding over shared fears, frustrations, and yearnings.
