The soon-to-be smash hit comedy "Knocked Up"!
...on the heels of 2005's blockbuster The 40-Year-Old Virgin, writer/director Judd Apatow again mines hilarity from the relatably human in a comedy about a one-night stand with unexpected consequences: Knocked Up. Katherine Heigl (Grey's Anatomy, Roswell) joins Virgin alums Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann for a comic look about the best thing that will ever ruin your best-laid plans: parenthood. Allison Scott (Heigl) is an up-and-coming entertainment journalist whose 24-year-old life is on the fast track. But it gets seriously derailed when a drunken one-nighter with slacker Ben Stone (Rogen) results in an unwanted pregnancy. Faced with the prospect of going it alone or getting to know the baby's father, Allison decides to give the lovable doof a chance.
So I went to the website and watched the trailer and yeah what a lovable doof he is and how totally betchin' that he decides to commit to the thin blonde fox he accidently got drunk and then pregnant.
And this is clean white America so no mention of STD's, kay? I mean, she works for E Entertainment Television! What could you possibly catch from a drunken blonde who works for E?
And he looks like he hasn't shaved or showered in three days, so yeah, of course she had to be drunk to sleep with him, duh, but this baby is going to make them fall in love.
Oh, they buy a baby Bjorn carrier together! Cute! Bonding! Nevermind those things are eighty bucks and it doesn't appear the "lovable doof" has a job. Also, script tip, make sure none of the slacker friends works for the Consumer Product Safety Commission, which has reports of nine infants suffering skull fractures from "slipping through the leg openings of these carriers and falling to the ground." Wouldn't wanna jeopordize the product placement dollars on that one.
Good thing nobody younger than seventeen ever gets to see a movie like this because, shuh, it would be, like, a really mixed message about sexual responsibility to communicate to a young, impressionable person.
Rated R for reprehensible?
UPDATE: I don't want to come across as an anti-sex prude here. And I'm torn about giving this movie any more attention. But seriously, does anyone here think the conversation these two people are having is FUNNY? (This is the, ahem, "European" trailer, NSFW language.)
Um, yes, he actually does ask her if her vagina was drunk. LOL!
