We Have Seen It Before
13 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Knocked Up is all about Seth Rogen. He is clearly a fresh voice in Hollywood for the X- Generation and below. His comedy instincts and his timing are reminiscent of the great Albert Brooks (see Modern Romance). This is about Rogen's third or forth time out playing virtually the same character. But it worked for Albert Brooks for 40 years so I guess Rogen has some more time to perfect the character which he already does a brilliant job with. What happens here is Ben Stone, played by Rogen, has a one-night stand with Alison Scott (the ever hot Katherine Heigl). She is an assistant on the E! cable show who rises to reporter just as she discovers she is pregnant so she chooses to hide that fact. The secret isn't easy and isn't helped much by Rogen's character whose out of control life and lack of maturity provide us with consistent laughter. Heigl plays this character to perfection and easily holds he own against Rogen's nuttiness. This is a warm, sweet and very funny film that definitely has its share of comedy moments but there just isn't enough of those moments nor is there enough here that we haven't seen before from the same guys. • Posters for the movie consist of the two main characters in the same mood. We see them sitting and we see close up face shots. Again, nothing new here.
