Judd Apatow, the creative force behind the smash-hit The 40 Year-Old Virgin, re-teams with Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd in this equally hilarious and affecting comedy about a one-night stand with unexpected consequences. Katherine Heigl portrays an up-and-coming entertainment journalist whose drunken romp with an off-beat slacker (Rogen) results in an unwanted pregnancy. With her only other option to raise the child alone, she tries to give it a shot with the loveable doof—but after they try dating it becomes painfully obvious that they are not the soul mates they’d hoped they might be. Like all of Apatow’s impressive work, Knocked Up draws its hysterical humor from the distinctly relatable humanity of its characters, making the laughs more genuine and the pay-offs that much more rewarding.
