January 30, 2020
Knocked Up crafts pathos and spit-takes from the truism that life will invariably make adults of us all whether we like it or not.
November 21, 2019
Knocked Up works thanks in large part to a strong cast and Apatow's ability to stretch a seemingly razor-thin premise into a well-developed (OK, maybe too developed) final product.

Knocked Up must be the funniest Hollywood romantic comedy since Apatow's 40-Year-Old Virgin. Granted, there are higher compliments, but the movie undeniably offers audiences many abdomen-impairing moments they'll talk (and talk and talk) about.

Asmart, charming, uproarious, unabashedly filthy sex comedy that delivers on all levels.
November 3, 2018
What makes Knocked Up stand out is not just the fact that the jokes are side-splittingly funny but that nearly everything that happens to the couple rings so true.
October 16, 2018
The very fact that some clearly juvenile filmmakers have hit on the truth that a baby in the womb is as much a life as the one cradled in its mother's arms is encouraging.
June 14, 2018
What really sells it is a fantastic support cast featuring Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill and Leslie Mann.

... Seth Rogen and Katherine Heigl have great chemistry onscreen and they are hysterical together.
July 8, 2014
[Apatow] makes responsibility and commitment funny; no mean feat.
July 8, 2014
What makes most of Knocked Up work is its ability to squeeze big laughs out of real-world situations.
February 10, 2014
Knocked Up proves that hit comedy doesn't have to dumb down for its demographic.
August 3, 2013
With sparkling performances from Rogen and Heigl, Apatow once again shows his sharp eye for talent and continuing knack for hits.
August 3, 2013
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.
August 3, 2013
The movie is a decisive breakthrough for Apatow, whose comic instincts go hand in hand with an unfashionable empathy.
February 1, 2013
It's a hysterical, well acted, and wonderful glimpse at impending parenthood from a man's perspective...
November 3, 2012
It's a movie with heart and with balls, and it knows when to use each of them.
July 14, 2011
If Apatow was seeking to make a film that's smutty and funny, but also romantic and realistic about relationships, he's succeeded admirably.
April 4, 2011
It's the funniest, smartest, goofiest, dirtiest, coolest (and longest -- over two hours, in fact) comedy so far this year.
July 6, 2010
There are also surprisingly few subplots for a movie that lasts more than two hours. What is on display, however, is very fertile stuff.
July 6, 2010
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.
