Romantic Animal House Road Trip,
This review is from: Knocked Up [DVD] (DVD)
The film is based around the story of social dropout played by Seth Rogen who on a drunken one night stand with Katherine Heigl gets her pregnant because he is too drunk to use protection. It then explores the developing relationship between the two as she goes through her pregnancy.
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.
