Knocked Up (2007)

I have seen Judd Apatow’s, “Knocked Up” two or three times. I have to say that this movie is a little farfetched with the pothead Ben (Seth Rogen) would bag a girl like Alison (Katherine Heigl).

I know the Apatow formula by now. He casts the same people that were with him since “Freaks and Geeks” a billion years ago. Casting Paul Rudd as the snarky lonely father that wants to escape, his real life wife as the raving lunatic that tries to crush the husband’s spirit, Jonah Hill and Jason Segel as his fellow stoner friends. There are cameos by James Franco and Steve Carell.

I know that Apatow will recycle the same actors like in “Anchorman”, “Forgetting Sarah Marshall”, “Superbad”, “Walking Hard” and all that. I’m fine with that.

People were distracted that Seth bared his ass in this movie. I don’t mind it. It doesn’t look hideous by any means. It was a real scene about the morning after the sloppy drunken night of sex.

I believe that this movie is more grounded in reality than “The 40 Year Old Virgin”. The dialogue is so great that it hits you over the head that somebody is saying what you are thinking onscreen. That’s so cool.

The one thing that disturbed me was the actual birth scene. I know that it wasn’t a real birth, but it was not pretty to look at Alison’s vajayjay. No, thank you.

Go see it. It’s a great follow up to “Virgin.”
