Review: 'Knocked Up' is the perfect storm of comedies, where all the perfect components, (Seth Rogen, Leslie Mann, Judd Apatow, Iris & Maude Apatow, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, and Charlyne Yi, to name a few) have come together, to make one awesome and thoroughly hilarious film of epic proportions.

The story is centered on Ben Stone (Seth Rogen), and Allison Scott (Katherine Heigl), who meet on a night of drunken debauchery, and end up having a one night stand. Little do they know the consequences of this night...

The movie takes off as we see these two, oddly matched, unlikely lovers navigate the treacherous ground that is pregnancy, often with hysterically funny results. It is not only Rogen and Heigl who make this film. The entire supporting cast is just as great, and their side stories really add to the likability of this film. The soundtrack is also noteworthy. Bravo, to all involved parties! I can only hope that more films with this crew are to follow.
Pretty please.
Grade: 9.5
