Storyline

When Alison Scott is promoted in E! Television, she goes to a night-club to celebrate with her older married sister Debbie. Alison meets the pothead reckless Ben Stone and while having a small talk with Ben, Debbie's husband Pete calls her to tell that their daughter has chicken pox. Debbie leaves the place but Allison stays with Ben, drinking and dancing along all night; completely wasted, they end up having a one night stand. Ben does not use a condom and eight weeks later, Allison discovers that she is pregnant. She calls Ben and they decide to try to stay together and have the baby. However, Ben needs to grow up first to raise a family of his own. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Judd Apatow originally planned to use real footage of a woman giving birth for the delivery scene. He had to change it because child labor laws required the infant to have a work permit. See more »

Goofs

When Ben is watching Cheaper by the Dozen on the TV, the film skips from a scene near the beginning, in which Tom is getting all the kids up for school, to a scene near the middle, in which Tom puts a band aid on one of the girls and fishes an athletic cup out of the pasta. See more »

Judd Apatow is simply a genius
13 May 2009 | by kirk-246See all my reviews

I liked Judd Apatow's first comedy,'The 40-Year Old Virgin'.When it comes to comedy,Judd knows exactly how to make people laugh until they beg him to make another movie.'Knocked Up'isn't just funny.It's a smart and refreshing movie that actually teaches a lesson:make sure you wear a condom when you have sex with a woman.But if you want a child,then do whatever that floats in your mind.The one thing that I probably dislike about the movie is it's running time.Even you probably wouldn't want to watch a really funny movie that lasts 129 minutes.But its definitely worth it when it comes to 'Knocked Up' and Judd Apatow.Grab some popcorn,get some friends,and laugh your butt off at this funny and brilliant comedy if you haven't already.
