Quality flick. Very funny. Copious F-bombs, a decent amount of nudity (No Katherine Heigl, sorry), good insult exchanges, and there's enough of the rom-com element that the better halves of you ugly bastards will sit through it.

Antonio Alfonseca gives it 3 thumbs up :thumb:

This movie's had good "buzz" from the start.

I don't think I've heard anything negative about it, other than the fact that it's got the cast of "40 Year Old Virgin" without the star.

I like Apatow.... the classic "every man". He reminds me of... well, me.

I'm excited to see it.

Carrell has a cameo, the black guy (Romany Malco) isn't in it, neither is the Palestinian dude (sad, he was the funniest guy in 40YOV).

The supporting cast is really good though. Rogen's buddies are f*cking hilarious.

Malco isn't in it? I was hoping he was, dude was hilarious in 40 Year Old Virgin.

Good movie. Not quite as funny as I was expecting.
There's a great deleted scene with the Asian doctor floating around youtube that should have made the final cut.

I actually thought it was the funniest movie I've seen in some time. I liked it more than "Blades of Glory" or any of the Frat Pack movies of the last few years, but I think that I tend to like films that Apatow directs rather than the Will Ferrell/Owen Wilson/Vince Vaughn vehicles.

Personal preference.

I saw it last night, it was f*cking hilarious!

at least on the level of 40YOV, I'll have to see it again to be sure. But I'm definitely seeing it again.

I'm looking forward to this. Just the dialog I've read in reviews has cracked me up. Salon's critic gave it a good review, and she's pretty harsh on those types of movies usually.

The movie stood alone without the laughs...that's saying something. This director uses actors that are effortlessly funny. One of the greatest comedies I've ever seen.

I still have a slight problem with most people's reactions to the birth scene. I don't understand how it's disgusting, revolting, unnecessary, etc - in the least bit. It's natural and any comedy that doesn't really touch on that is, well, in denial.

Agreed. Its probably mostly the younger crowd, who may not have ever witnessed a baby crowning before??

Im sure most of the Dads out there would have no problem with it since we have all seen it before.

I wasn't disgusted by it, I just really didn't think it was necessary. It took me by surprise. I was not expecting that!

It was neccessary. If the vag wasn't shown, that scene with the kid running in and out would have been cheesy. It brought the shock factor up for the viewer, so we could understand why he would run out and warn the other stoners.

I could have figured it out on my own. And I don't think they over spent the budget on the special effects on that one either. LMAO

It was very funny. I just had higher expectations.

2 deleted scenes that should have been included:

And that's why I hate the MPAA Rating System.

It gets NC-17 and no one will see it because theatres won't play it. They cut it out and it makes hand over fist with an R rating. Except, it would have made just as much if the scenes had been included.

Heh. Out of curiosity, why do you read the Huffington Post so much? You post more links from there than anyone else on the board, I think. Is there something I'm missing about it that makes it a quality read? Maybe I should switch over from salon to it?

One can usually find something at least interesting.
Political takes from pundits, celebs, and straight up smart-asses.
Usually worth checking out to see if Steven Weber or Harry Shearer has posted. It's also where I first saw David Ehrenstein's exhaustively discussed take on Obama.

Yes, he is.

On the NFLN, he had on a Casey Weigmann jersey one time he was on. He had a Will Shields on another time.

just saw it, very funny.....better than I expected, I think I enjoyed it even more than 40 Year Old Virgin

the humor and language are raw, but the details of the humor are spot on...whoever wrote that has a great ear for how modern white pot head slackers talk and act....

and somehow the baby issue never becomes too melodramatic or sappy...of course, women might not see that as a positive...it is still basically a guys movie

Judd Apatow. Hes developed into a great writer and director. Hes been around awhile and paid his dues but is finally hitting it big.

He also had a big hand in creating a couple of TV shows that should have never been cancelled. They were both genuine, insightful and hilarious:



Freaks and Geeks

Undeclared.

Make sure you check them out on DVD sometime. Great shows.

The comments left at that link are hard to read. Apparently, it's a bad thing to want to have a kid instead of getting it aborted (as if abortions are the normal thing to do in modern society and letting the child be born is somehow frowned upon). Wow.

Yea....Freaks and Geeks was great. Probably one of the best re-creation of the early 1980's ive ever seen.


FYI, thats also where Seth Rogan and a few of the other chums in "Knocked Up" first got their start.

Apatow was also a writer on the Larry Sanders Show, and he credits some of his directing style to what he learned from Garry Shandling.
