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". Seth Rogen and 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 »

Although the subject matter wasn't really appealing to me, the critics and general audience reviews are right: this is a very well made movie. The acting is great, the plot fast-paced, the characters believable and the dialog witty and clever. It reminds me of Superbad - another movie that I would never normally see, but one which wins you over by it's sheer (albeit crude) brilliance.
The basic premise is simple: a young TV reporter celebrates a promotion by getting drunk and inadvertently pregnant. The father-to-be is a good natured, pot-head slacker who has no money. When she decides to have the baby, she's not sure what her relationship with the father should be... and the movie progresses from there.
It's a simple plot but the dialog is what makes this movie shine. No matter the scene, it was always fun to hear what the characters were going to say. Even though most of them were one-dimensional, the dialog made them seem human and easy to relate to. A fast-movie plot also kept the movie moving along - something was always happening and there was never a dull moment.
While there is a certain level of crudity throughout, the movie is generally lighthearted and innocent. It's a fun movie to see.
