In the scene where Allison and Debbie are trying to contact Ben after she finds out she's pregnant, they are in Pete's office. Since Pete is in the music industry, he has pictures of him with various celebrities, and right behind Debbie is a picture of Pete with Elvis Costello. This is actually a shot from the movie 200 Cigarettes (1999), in which are both Paul Rudd (Pete) and Elvis Costello. Costello makes a surprise appearance at the party towards the end of this movie.

When Alison is sitting on the couch next to Ben as his friends leave to go play paint-ball, she has a noticeable pregnant belly. In the next scene, she is sitting on the side of the pool in a bikini with her sister and nieces, and has a flat stomach. In the next scene, the belly is back. (The fake belly couldn't get wet, this is mentioned in the Director's Commentary.) See more »

I saw this recently and left with a stomach ache from laughing so hard.
I watched 40 Year Old Virgin again to make a fair assessment, and i
found this to be funnier. Don't get me wrong, I love all of Judd
Apatow's work, but this to me was the best thing since Freaks & Geeks.
Apatow has a brilliant way of letting the audience get to know all of
the characters(anyone who has seen his stuff will know that it is a lot
and usually the same people)which gives you the feeling that you are a
part of what's going on, and makes you interested. By now, I am sure
everyone is familiar with the plot summary. Couple meets, hooks up and
surprise she's pregnant. I find it amusing that some of the previous
comments mention that it it such an unbelievable concept. Well of
course it is, it's a movie!!! But come on, is it not entirely true that
someone would hook up on a celebratory night out with someone they
normally wouldn't? Of course they would! Thus, the meeting of Alison(
Ketherine Heigl) and Ben (Seth Rogen)seems so genuine and awkward. The
aftermath is the best part though. Since this is a movie, trying to
make the best out of a bad situation is a given. The getting to know
someone AFTER they have gotten you pregnant, meeting family and
friends, realizing the many differences you have, etc. All of this is
explored is very realistic fashion, especially the emotion and the
trying to have sex while six months along!! Of course the whole thing
can't be comedy. With so many other characters to help take the focus
off the main two, there will be parts of the story that are more
"serious". True is the case towards the end with Alison's sister
(Leslie Mann) and her husband (Paul Rudd) having a falling out. This is
a very nice, but what seems eternally long, scene about the importance
of understanding in a relationship. Could that be the moral of our
story Alison and Ben, understanding and acceptance? I think so.
Naturally the only thing left is birth and the happily ever after. The
hospital scene is definitely NOT for the squeamish. I really hope those
parts are not cut from the movie, because they received some of the
most reactions. I found this whole seen to be painfully realistic, more
so than any other movie has dared to be. Finally, the happy ending is
upon us and the closing credits are filled with family snapshots and
even childhood photos of cast and crew, very cute. So to you the
potential viewer I say that this is an exceptional comedy. It is
definitely the funniest thing I have seen this year. I will definitely
be seeing it again to see all the parts I missed while laughing. And I
must say I was absolutely delighted to see both Martin Starr (do NOT
leave the theater during the scenes with his girlfriend) and Loudon
Wainwright. Put one more in the win column for Judd Apatow.
