First of all, it should be noted that the Heigl-Rogen hardly works and there is little chemistry between their characters, which is pretty bad in the first place.
But the most annoying thing is that, like always with Judd Apatow, Knocked Up lasts more than two hours, when clearly there wasn't enough material to do so. Just by reducing the film to a 1h45 cut for example, it would have gained consistency and interest, because the good lines, the interesting passages and the funny scenes are embedded in the mass.
And it's a shame because the potential was there, whether dramatic or comic, but one can't stop wondering why the director persists in not doing more restrictive cuts that would hugely improve his movies.
