Knocked Up | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Candice Frederick Reel Talk Online ... Seth Rogen and Katherine Heigl have great chemistry onscreen and they are hysterical together. Rated: B+ Sep 12, 2017 Full Review Knocked Up | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Bob Mondello NPR.org [A] very funny Peter Pan-and-Wendy- get-preggers story. Oct 18, 2008 Full Review Knocked Up | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Joe Williams St. Louis Post-Dispatch Although this story about a mismatched couple expecting a baby strains credibility and sometimes pushes the limits of good taste, it delivers plenty of belly laughs. Sep 15, 2007 Full Review Knocked Up | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Stephen Silver Tilt Magazine A decade-and-a-half after its release, Judd Apatow’s 2007 comedy Knocked Up is mostly known for a few controversies... All of those controversies have some merit. But that doesn’t mean the film itself deserves to be written off. (15th anniversary) Rated: 4/5 Jun 16, 2022 Full Review Knocked Up | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Danielle Solzman Solzy at the Movies Fifteen years after its release, Knocked Up is a time capsule of comedy filmmaking from over a decade ago. Rated: 4/5 Jun 1, 2022 Full Review Knocked Up | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand Judd Apatows gags are strewn with crude language and extreme behavior but his humor is all grounded in character and relationships and prickly moments of self-realization and guilt, and his cast mixes it up wonderfully.

Audience Member Great simple edgy comedy film! Rated 3.5/5 Stars • Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/19/24 Full Review Griffith J Absolutely hilarious with the quick witted writing & natural acting from the stacked cast. Surprisingly realistic with both the good & bad of modern relationships. It feels genuine & earned with positive messages of pregnancy. Rated 4/5 Stars • Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/28/24 Full Review Brian D 84%. Seen a million times. Close to as high as a comedy rating can go with very little plot depth. Jonah hill is hilarious as always. Lots of good lines. Tappers off toward the end when it gets more serious. 5/5 rewatch Rated 4.5/5 Stars • Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/24/24 Full Review Tom F Apatow hitting his stride, with all the strengths and weaknesses of his style on display. Rated 2.5/5 Stars • Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 04/19/24 Full Review Daniel B solid movie but too long and sort of loses the main plot. Rated 3/5 Stars • Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/19/24 Full Review Kyle M Brilliantly cast signature breakthroughs, peaked direction and topically perceptive reverence boasts this absolute hilarity as one of the best contemporary comedies with demonstrative approach that raised the genre's bar. (B+) Rated 4/5 Stars • Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/14/24 Full Review Read all reviews
