Promising Start, Then Flags and Drags,
This review is from: Knocked Up [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
I didn't know anything about this film, but was expecting a typical romcom. It started off promisingly, with a lot of crude and rude humour, not to mention plenty of swearing, but then turns into a flick about an unlikely couple muddling through pregnancy.
I felt the premise was unrealsitic, as I just couldn't see this suave and ambitious girl trying to make a go of it with such a hopeless, unattractive, unappealing and penniless slob.
I didn't find any of the characters particularly appealing, although the two female leads had some amusing moments when they were out on the town. As for the guys friends - yuck...
To be honest, after 90 minutes we'd had enough, and couldn't believe that we'd another 40 minutes to get through. Definitely too long for us, and a let-down if you're expecting a lot of laughs.
