For those of us who saw The 40 Year Old Virgin and came away wishing that they'd given 'that funny guy with the beard' roles that could have saved Bruce Almighty and suchlike fro mediocrity, Knocked Up is like our prayers getting answered. Rogen is on fantastic form as Ben - a waster seemingly locked in a happy stasis of living off court reparations with a house of similar stoners, playing duel and table tennis, gtting high, and watching movies for nude bits in the hope of setting up an internet lexion of film nudity - the man who has a drunken liason with TV presenter and career gal Alison (Katherine Heigl) and gets her pregnant. The movie's story could be summed up with the phrase 'deal with it' - it is the story of how these two work out their fundamental differences and prepare for the birth.

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.

A mistake that can happen to any couple so to speak, but a great mistake at that.
There's a whole array of mainstream Hollywood comedians from this time in the film and they help carry what is really a pretty mundane idea. Bloke meets girl in a nightclub, has a one night stand with her, gets her pregnant and after both their shock decide to keep the baby.
There are no twists or turns in this film and it could even perhaps be considered a romantic comedy. (Although the jury is still out!)
The lead chap's lifestyle could not be any more different to Alison's, (the lead lady). He is a pot smoking waster in short and she is a determined young television presenter working for E Entertainment.
The constant bickering between Alison's sister and husband, (who have two children) show how testing married and family life is. There is a funny scene where it transposes that Alison's sister's husband is playing fantasy baseball, when she thought he was having an affair.
There's not any thought provoking stuff and it does seem its full 2hrs 5 mins. It would have been better suited to 1hr 40 mins. Its also one of those films where the viewer is left wondering just what happens once the baby is born. Ie Everything leads up to the culmination of the birth and nothing is shown after, (a lot of films run like that which is disappointing).
Still there's laughs a plenty and its perhaps a movie that should be watched with a partner with a sense of humour!

Quite how an unwanted pregnancy can be considered funny escapes me. Think about it. A hot woman with the whole future before her gets impregnated by some ugly guy after a one night stand - my, how everybody laughs, what jolly japes. I did not think the script the slightest bit funny and quite frankly I could not wait till the film ended. I did actually sit through this despite the urge to eject the disc. Sorry folks, just not my cup of tea.

Apparently, this is a comedy. Reviewers wrote and talked about laugh out loud moments, about how wonderful a comedy this is.

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.
