Movie of the Week: Knocked Up

Judd Apatow can do no wrong.

Pretty much hilarious from start to finish. I think I liked it better than The 40-Year Old Virgin because even though some of the situations were ridiculous, the characters seemed more real.

Everyone was great but the standout was definitely Paul Rudd. The scene in Vegas with Rogan and Rudd had my friend and I in hysterics. Hopefully Apatow will make Paul Rudd the star of his next comedy classic.

Other standouts, aside from Seth Rogan and Katherine Heigl (I forgive for the ridiculousness of the second half of this season of Grey’s Anatomy), were Kristin Wig and the Apatow all-stars (Jonah Hill, Jason Segel, Jay Baruchel, Martin Starr) from Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared.

The only reason I couldn’t give it four stars was it was a little too long and I was traumatized by the birth scene at the end.

  1. When I saw the birth scene at the end, I started re-considering ever having my own children. Other than that, I really liked this movie. The hair/beard comments particularly had me rolling.
