Movie Review: Knocked Up


If someone asked me to describe Knocked Up in on sentence, it would be "Really funny with realistic situations." The contemporary humor with not so far-fetched situations is really the center of this comedy.

From a star power point of view, Knocked Up is lightweight-- relative unknowns Seth Rogen and Katherine Heigl star as the mismatched couple, but the writing and characters make this movie make it worth your while. The treatment of how this relationship evolves from a fateful one night stand to to one that goes through the issues people face right now, is very good.

Who would enjoy this movie? It's primarily for folks who can appreciate goof-ball humor and witty dialogue and recurring jokes (e.g. a long-running beard joke). The movie doesn't go over the top and has enough sensibility for the female audience.

Knocked Up is a long movie about a messy and funny relationship, but really bears fruit in the end.


Rating: 4.5/5
