This review is from: Knocked Up [DVD] (DVD)
I must admit that I didn't find "Knocked Up" to be side-splittingly funny; it was mildly amusing at best. It tells the tale of the relationship between a career minded ,attractive young TV presenter and a jobless, overweight stoner who share an ill advised one night stand. The girl falls pregnant and rather surprisingly the stoner stands by her and looks forward to being the father to her child. Things don't go according to plan however(do they ever ?)and the couple struggle to get through the pregnancy with their relationship intact. The girl and her sister were alright but I didn't warm to the drug taking deadbeats at all and they are present throughout most of the film. "Knocked Up" is somewhat overlong ,with a running time of more than 2 hours ,and despite it's attempts to be quirky and modern it contains most of the cliches one would expect from pregnancy films.
