Writer/director Judd Apatow follows up his hit "slacker" comedy
The 40 Year Old Virgin
with another refreshingly bold entry in a genre formerly mired in facile, post-Farrelly brothers gross-out. Pudgy, curly-haired Seth Rogen (a charismatic supporting player in
) plays a harmless pothead who impregnates Katherine Heigl's media career girl during a drunken one-night stand. Prompted by the impending birth to give the relationship a go, our odd couple learns lessons about responsibility and life in general, but to hilarious rather than schmaltzy effect. Married-with-kids Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann (also
alumni) are the foils for the younger pair, and Rogen's buddies, led by Jonah Hill, the geek chorus. Thanks to quality, near-the-knuckle repartee and believable chemistry between Rogen and
star Heigl (Apatow can certainly write for women),
proves that hit comedy doesn't have to dumb down for its demographic.
Ambitious journalist Alison's one-night stand with directionless layabout Ben has unexpected consequences when she discovers she is pregnant. However, the unlikely parents decide to give the relationship a try for their baby's sake, forcing Ben to face the challenge of accepting responsibility for the first time in his life. Romantic comedy, starring Seth Rogen, Katherine Heigl and Paul Rudd.
