Comedy - While the raunchy sexual material makes the film's R-rating
well-deserved, this film has more than male appeal but strong female
and date movie appeal, making it a wide-ranging adult appeal
film--it's funny, it's bawdy, but it's also romantic and sweet.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 258 moviegoers:
TEENS:LOVED IT! A few of the females were a bit disappointed but most thought it was great. Highly Recommended!
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:With approximately three-quarters rating it "Very Good" to "Fantastic" your probability of enjoying "Knocked Up" is very high. There were a fair number who rated it average and below average, but only a few didn't enjoy it at all. Easily recommended.
ADULTS:The adult opinions indicate a movie most enjoyed quite a bit but didn't love. For a simple comedy like "Knocked Up" I believe that's totally acceptable and expected. Approximately three-quarters of the males and better than half of the females rated it "Very Good" or higher, which is great. Most of the remaining opinions indicate an average to below average movie with very few actually disliking it. Easily recommended.
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.
An overgrown kid who has no desire to settle down, Ben learns that he has a big decision to make with his kid's mom-to-be: will he hit the road or stay in the picture? Courting a woman you've just Knocked Up, however, proves to be a little difficult when the two try their hands at dating. As they discover more about one another, it becomes painfully obvious that they're not the soul mates they'd hoped they might be.
With Allison's harried sister Debbie (Mann) and hen-pecked brother-in-law Pete (Rudd) the only parenting role models the young lovers have, things get even more confusing. Should they raise the baby together? What makes a happy lifetime partnership after all? A couple of drinks and one wild night later, they've got nine confusing months to figure it out...
