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.

For sisters Liz (Emily Mortimer), Miranda (Elizabeth Banks) and Natalie (Zooey Deschanel), that person is their perennially upbeat brother Ned (Paul Rudd), an erstwhile organic farmer whose willingness to rely on the honesty of mankind is a less-than-optimum strategy for a tidy, trouble-free existence. Ned may be utterly lacking in common sense, but he is their brother and so, after his girlfriend dumps him and boots him off the farm, his sisters once again come to his rescue. As Liz, Miranda and Natalie each take a turn at housing Ned, their brother's unfailing commitment to honesty creates more than a few messes in their comfortable routines. But as each of their lives begins to unravel, Ned's family comes to realize that maybe, in believing and trusting the people around him, Ned isn't such an idiot after all.
