In one scene, Ben (Seth Rogen) mentions that he likes Munich because 'Jews kick ass'. This was not in the script but was improvised by Rogen on the spot. However, the final film uses only one-third of the complete improvisation (not included in DVD special features). After the film was released, Steven Spielberg phoned director Judd Apatow to compliment the movie and Apatow sent him the complete uncut improvisation of the scene. Rogen would later costar with Munich's Eric Bana in Apatow's Funny People. 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.
