The film works because Judd Apatow, much like in his movie debut, manages to juggle the vulgar and the sweet, the crass and the romantic, without ever seeming to side to heavily on either side. An 'eurgh' is never too far away from an 'aww' and vice versa. For critics of the film who have suggested that this wouldn't happen - that they'd just go their separate ways - you have to say that had that happened it would have been a pretty short film: guy knocks up girl, girl deals with it on own. The End. No. Instead Apatow looks at the conflict as they struggle to make it work. Unlike most romcom heroes, Ben is a highly flawed character: yes he does have genuine goodwill and yes he does foolish American bumbling very well and comes across as endearing, but he is also a lazy guy who is incredibly scared of growing up and leaving behind his childhood.Read more ›
Well, I watched, and waited. Where were the laugh out loud funny bits? Either I've had a serious sense-of-humour bypass when I wasn't looking, or I just don't get what is so funny about this movie. OK, there were some amusing moments, although off the top of my head I cannot exactly pinpoint what they were. All this film managed to do was while away some time, and although this was not exactly unpleasant, it was hardly a memorable experience. The trials and tribulations of the lead characters' developing relationship after a one-night stand were, I suppose, refreshingly unsentimental for most of the film (but typically cannot go the whole nine yards without ending in the usual cringe-inducing fashion), yet unrealistic in that somehow these two are to fall in love because she gets knocked up in a moment of drunken lust. Aaah, bless, ain't love grand? Pass me the sick bag, please.
Various reviews mentioned the frankness of the language and sexual references. I'm sure I've seen more blatantly sexual Disney movies than this, albeit without the swearing. If you're expecting a comedy that will shock in any small way (along the lines of There's Something About Mary, perhaps), then you will be disappointed. Apart from a few swear words, which most of us are more than adult enough to cope with, this was no more shocking that one of Woody Allen's middle-class, angst-ridden New York dramas.
The lesson? Don't always believe the hype.
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.
For this film, it feels as if Judd Apatow has tried to create an all emcompassing genre movie. On the one hand it is designed to appeal to fans of romantic comedy via the relationship between Seth Rogen and Katherine Heigl but balanced against an attempt at a modern day Animal House within the boys house. Even a road trip is thrown in for good measure. Mixing the crudeness and vulgarity that is obviously designed to appeal to the male audience with the romance partly works but it doesn't quite gel; not to the quality of his previous films anyway.
There are lots of extras on this two disc edition, ingluding deleted / alternate scenes, gag reels and featurettes. For once there is actually too much content - I tried to watch it and got bored part way through, more due to the volume of it rather than the lack of quality.

This is a well acted film with very good actors. The story line is far fetched as are so many other films but that's fine by me. Each to their own opinion but I like it.Published 1 month ago by johnamazon
