Katherine Heigl has said in several interviews in 2008 and 2009 that she considered the movie to be sexist, because it depicts women as "shrews" and men as "lovable", and commented that she found the movie "hard to love". Co-star Seth Rogen and director Judd Apatow were unpleasantly surprised to hear it, as they remembered working quite well with her, and quickly responded by saying that Heigl's The Ugly Truth (2009) didn't make women look any better. In 2016, Heigl apologized to Rogen and Apatow, saying that her earlier statements reflected the criticism of many women who found the movie sexist, and calling her own comments "immature". Rogen commented on this that despite being displeased by the remarks, he never held any hard feelings towards her. See more »

I've noticed a lot of the negative comments about this title tend to focus on this movie's vulgar, 'stupid' humor. Now let's get one thing straight. Knocked Up is vulgar, absolutely it is, but is is not stupid. Stupid humor is crap like "Mr. Woodcock" and "Good Luck Chuck," movies with no real craft to any of their jokes.
Knocked Up, on the other hand, is actually pretty clever most of the time. And even the movie's vulgarity isn't done in an over-the-top, simply-for-gross-out way (cite the fat bitch from Good Luck Chuck). It's what I guess you could call 'relevant vulgarity.' Anyway, the movie is extremely funny. Every joke is naturalistic, but not expected. The movie's characters are all convincing and multi-dimensional, and above all likable. Seth Rogan really does make the movie, though. He is hilarious, but he comes off more like a real nice, frank, down-to-Earth guy. Just the kind of guy you'd like to sit down and have a beer with. The kind of guy you'd more than like to get smashed with. The kind of guy you'd really like to have ill advised unprotected sex with. The kind of guy you'd love to raise a bastard child with. Needless to say, he's the reason the movie works.
