Review For Knocked Up, writer/director Judd Apatow's sophomore feature, the filmmaker has elected to follow pretty much the same formula that made his debut, The 40 Year Old Virgin, such a success. Considering how winning the formula is, it's a safe approach. The often ribald humor is genuinely funny. The characters are endearing. And there's something warm and sweet about the underlying storyline. Apatow is clearly a romantic, even if there's a profane edge to his "love conquers all" worldview. Other filmmakers embarking into the comedy minefield could learn a thing or two from him. He's two for two...Knocked Up opens by introducing us to the oil-and-water protagonists. Alison Scott (Katherine Heigl) is an up-and-coming twentysomething whose professionalism and sunny personality have earned her a promotion at the E! Entertainment network to an on-camera interviewer. The appropriately named Ben Stone (Seth Rogen) is a laid-back slacker whose definition of "work" is watching movies for nude scenes by celebrities that will be used in a database for a Mr. Skin-type website. When he's not doing that, he's either smoking pot or hanging out. On the night of Alison's promotion, she goes out to a club where she runs into Ben. A number of drinks later, the two are rolling around on her bed, and that's where there's a misunderstanding about whether he should wear a condom. Two months later, it becomes clear that there will be more to the Alison and Ben story than a one-night stand. Morning sickness leads to a positive pregnancy test and Alison contacts Ben to give him the news. She decides to keep the baby, despite advice to the contrary from her mother, and he agrees to support her. They decide that it might be a good idea to get to know one another better since one way or another, their lives will be entwined...It's hard to say whether Apatow has grown with Knocked Up, but he hasn't regressed. The humor is just as edgy and R-rated as it was in The 40 Year Old Virgin, and it's likely that those who enjoyed the previous movie will be as entertained by this one. If more movies were like this, going to see the majority of Hollywood's so-called "comedies" wouldn't be such a dull and joyless experience. Knocked Up could be one of the summer of 2007's sleeper hits. It certainly deserves the distinction.

Review Hollywood's reigning auteur of raunchy romantic comedy, Judd Apatow, scores a near-knockout with Knocked Up, his extremely funny and sweetly endearing follow-up to The 40-Year-Old Virgin (2005). With generous helpings of acerbic good humor, his trademark, sexually graphic dialogue, and surprising emotional honesty, Apatow turns the most simple of premises...into a thoroughly winning and frequently hilarious reflection on the pleasures and pitfalls of marriage and parenthood...Apatow has a ball sending up the assorted phonies, backstabbers, and sycophants at E!, including none other than the ubiquitous Ryan Seacrest...As funny as these scenes are, they nevertheless pull us away from Alison's relationship with Ben, which blossoms into romance a little too quickly, given their vast differences and the bedroom miscommunication that binds them. Still, Rogen and Heigl make such an appealing couple--his boisterous sarcasm bouncing off her smart retorts--that you're more than willing to overlook the occasional storytelling lapses in Knocked Up...

Review By rights, Judd Apatow should be a terrible filmmaker. His movies largely feature his friends and family, which is usually an invitation to lazy inside-joking. His subjects tend to be none-too-bright slackers and losers, which always carries with it the possibility of tiresome indulgence. OK, they're kinda dumb, but, really, isn't there something adorable in their stupidity? The fact is, however, Apatow, represents, for the moment at least, the best in American movie comedy. The 40 Year-Old Virgin somehow made rather touching and funny sense out of that eponymous condition and its protagonist's recovery from it. Now Knocked Up does much the same thing for a much more common situation -- the inconvenient consequences of a one-night stand...The course of pregnancy runs no smoother than the course of true love, and Apatow's obstetrical observations -- yes, natural childbirth devotees may well call for painkillers when labor becomes more intense than advertised -- are shrewd and edgy. And Alison's hormonally induced moodiness, as well as Ben's slouching progress toward grown-up status, are craftily presented. But for all his hipness and Hollywood hotness, Apatow is, at heart, a square. He clearly believes in marriage, family, bourgeois dutifulness. Maybe his movie is a little repetitive, but that's a negligible price to pay for the careful blending of wildness and good humor that went into its making. It's hard enough to find comedies like this at any time, so it's a small and welcome miracle to come upon one in the midst of a typical movie summer, richer than ever in over-budgeted, underwhelming inanities.

A.O. Scott, The New York Times An instant classic, a comedy that captures the sexual confusion and moral ambivalence of our moment without straining, pandering or preaching.
David Ansen, Newsweek Judd Apatow is making the freshest, most honest mainstream comedies in Hollywood.
Joe Leydon, Variety Uproarious...more explosively funny, more frequently, than nearly any other major studio release in recent memory.
Kyle Smith, New York Post Ridiculous comedies can be fine, but the ones that matter creep up close to the truth. This one lives in it.
Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly The very opposite of a storybook romance, and also the very model of a great comedy for our values-driven time.
Robert Wilonsky, The Village Voice Ultimately, what makes Knocked Up a terrific film--one of the year's best, easily--is its relaxed, shaggy vibe...
Scott Tobias, The Onion A.V. Club No one writes for ensembles better than Apatow, and his players are all skilled at giving his work a loose, improvisational feel.
