Knocked Up (2007): 4/5

Contrary to popular belief, I do keep an open mind when it comes to movies of the Will Ferrell type (the ones of the Happy Madison people, however, have gotten increasingly irritating- must be the mood swings or that time of the month). But i’m glad this movie caught me at neither occasion. Regardless of it being another stoner flick with endless hit-and-miss comedic bits, this movie isn’t as knocked up as it appears to be, yet there is some heart to be found in the depths of its apparent and well, stupid-movie surface. It runs a bit too long though, clocking in at more than 2 hours, but the point being driven at is clearly there (or did I look too much into this movie?).

It’s a good movie, this one is. Good movies make you care, make you believe in possibilities again. And to sum up, a line from one of Woody Allen’s movies comes to mind after watching Knocked Up (for the second time!). It goes:- “I just met the most wonderful man. He’s fictional but you can’t have everything.” šŸ™‚

    I got to watch this on HBO yesterday and for some reason, I ended up liking it (amidst all the blatant editing and jump cuts)

    I like the way how it presented how a good precentage of Americans deal with unwanted pregnancies (from beginning, to childbirth, to married life) It showed a good realistic “ideal” way of dealing with it.

    It didn’t sugarcoat stuff. It had a good message and the supporting characters were charmingly funny plus I also think the end credits were I nice cute touch.

    HBO has an annoying habit of cutting and censoring WAY too much ,.would;ve been better off not showing the movie at all! I suggest you see it on (unrated) Dvd, it’ll explain all the jump cuts on HBO ,hehe
