I watched this movie again just before writing the post to remind me what goes on. I think Knocked Up is probably one of Katherine Heigl most famous films, and Judd Apatow’s – why? Well let’s take a look…
Katherine Heigl: Knocked Up
Firstly, it’s got got all the key elements of a romantic comedy – two slightly (well not-so-slightly in this case) messed up characters who dislike each other and are pushed together, in this case by Allison, Heigl’s character, getting accidentally ‘knocked up’.
Secondly, because it is genuinely funny, most of the time. I like this film, but it’s not my favourite of her comedies (I think ‘Life as We Know It’ is probably my favourite). Getting back to the point though, Knocked Up really does have some funny moments, and some moments that anyone watching will relate to – I think this is a good sign for any movie!
What else to say? Well, I love Leslie Mann – she is super funny (as a side note she is a very funny crier – I don’t think any actress cries as well as Leslie Mann). She’s a sort of secondary character in this movie but she plays the ‘mum got-it-together-some-of-the-time’ figure really well (she is the main character in Knocked Up’s sort of sequel This is 40).
My other favourite moment (and don’t read if you don’t want spoilers, but to be honest as soon as the movie happens you can probably guess this) is when Seth Rogan (who I think in every movie he’s in smokes drugs – at least that’s my perception) ‘grows up’ and begins to mature as a person.
Anyway, the movie is currently on Netflix UK so take a look!!
Have a wonderful week,
