Review: Knocked Up

Allison (Kathrine Heigl) and Ben (Seth Rogen) hook up for one night only to find out 8 weeks later that they're pregnant.

A hilariously written movie. The dialogue is fabulous. It's awkward and real sounding, plus the stuff they say is just so bizarrely funny. The movie does have a lot of nudity, language, and drug use, which I always find slightly jarring and think, "Did they really need all that?" But maybe I am just not a part of that culture. Besides one of the funniest scenes was when Ben and Pete (Paul Rudd), who is Allison's brother-in-law, are in Vegas and they take mushrooms. Paul Rudd is so freaking funny in that scene. Wonderful.

My favorite parts of the movie:

the dialogue
Mushroom scene
making fun of the bearded roommate
Allison's talks with her boss (Alan Tudyk, Go Firefly) and supervisor chick
Celebrity Cameo's

4 out of 5 stars.
