Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Writer/director Judd Apatow cemented his reputation after The 40 Year Old Virgin with this very modern romcom. Pudgy, curly-haired Seth Rogen 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 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, Knocked Up proves that hit comedy doesn't have to dumb down for its demographic.
