Knocked Up (2007)

For fun loving party animal Ben Stone, the last thing he ever expected was for his one night stand to show up on his doorstep eight weeks later to tell him she's pregnant.

Pacing was way off in the second half. Some good lines and scenes, but needed some judicious cutting.

Apatow's directorial follow-up to The 40-Year-Old Virgin is Knocked Up, about a one-night stand that results in a pregnancy. In other words, it's an upended romcom where the leads do the deed before getting to know each other, which creates stakes to whether or not they fall in love. Seth Rogen plays his usual lovable stoner and Katherine Heigl is the emotional center of the film without trying to BE funny and just believing the situations and the cast of loonies around her. It all comes out as a sweet feel-good comedy, though one with perhaps too many subplots for its own good. The stoner club trying to get a nudity-based website online, Paul Rudd as the absent husband of Heigl's sister, the internal politics at E!… Most of it pays off, most of it works in isolation, but as part of a larger structure, I'm not sure it all works in tandem with the A-plot. But at least it feels like the characters have lives outside of their romance.
