It might look slightly risqué but the message remains the same: get married, stay married and buy lots of stuff.

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.

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

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.

Stupidest and most overhyped piece of garbage since "Little Miss Sunshine"

If Judd Apatow is going to set the gold standard for American screen comedy, it's only natural to start expecting more.
September 15, 2007
Apatow's hardly the first filmmaker to go all gooshy on the subject of kids after becoming a father himself, but with his comic talent and flair for character, you'd think his movie would be more insightful about impending parenthood.

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.

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

This feels like the world's longest pregnancy or comedy, with a running time of 129 minutes. Knocked Up is like a helium balloon with a slow leak that quits hugging the ceiling and starts sliding down the wall the longer it goes.

There's no doubt director/writer Apatow is supplying a national service by allowing the inept to feel adequate about themselves.
July 11, 2007
Judd Apatow's Knocked Up may have a provocative title, but just like a TV sitcom that placates an audience's apprehension about the real world, it neither titillates nor challenges.

The movie gets a lot of mileage from the boys' bonding over shared fears, frustrations, and yearnings.
June 6, 2007
The film simply can't and doesn't live up to the lofty expectations created by its "Virgin" predecessor.
June 1, 2007
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?
June 1, 2007
It's a very funny 90-minute movie, trapped in a 129-minute movie that has many, many dead spots and unfunny patches.

[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.
June 1, 2007
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.
May 31, 2007
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.
