Film of the Day #67/ 300
The comedic concept of Judd Apatow's 40-Year-Old Virgin may never again be topped, but Apatow, today's King of Comedy, actually managed to make Knocked Up a better movie and an instant classic. A raunchy but tender comedy about sex and parenthood, it’s hard to deny the fact that Knocked Up is a work of art. Knocked Up has reinvented the romantic comedy for a new generation; it’s extremely funny, well written and a sharply observed comedy with strong comic performances from its talented cast. There is always something to smile about and identify with. Knocked Up is a refreshing, well-made, genuinely funny and mature comedy that is actually about something meaningful. This is a rare thing – a comedy for both him and her. The mix of emotionally rich humour and sheer bawdy pleasures makes Knocked Up one of the finest Hollywood comedies for years. If you have someone special in your life, this just maybe the best date movie ever.
