This Just In: Knocked Up – Hilarious.

Hol and I just got back from seeing Knocked Up. Funny, funny shite. While not literally, it is effectively a sequel to The 40 Year Old Virgin, and it's basically the same group (*cough-carellcameo-cough*) working the same smart, hysterical ensemble action. Writer/Director Apatow and his tight ensemble cast repeatedly yanked big, unstoppable, Ls-O-L from me. Wait until you've seen it then go check out the outtakes on the site. [You've got to register to enter the 18+ 'restricted area' on the left.

Finally caught it this weekend and everything you say is spot on. I especially appreciated how there were absolutely no small parts in this movie. Every actor brought the serious funny to their role. While I was not guffawing the whole time a la Something About Mary, I was at least chuckling. What makes the movie so great is that it wasn't silly or slapstick. Rather, it took on a fairly serious issue and delivered the goods. (pun intended)
