On the heels of 2005's blockbuster The
40-Year-Old Virgin, writer/director Judd Apatow again mines
hilarity from the relatably human in a comedy about a
one-night stand with unexpected consequences: Knocked Up.
Katherine Heigl (Grey's Anatomy, Roswell) joins Virgin alums
Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann for a comic look about
the best thing that will ever ruin your best-laid plans:
Allison Scott (Heigl) is an up-and-coming entertainment
journalist whose 24-year-old life is on the fast track. But
it gets seriously derailed when a drunken one-nighter with
slacker Ben Stone (Rogen) results in an unwanted pregnancy.
Faced with the prospect of going it alone or getting to know
the baby's father, Allison decides to give the lovable doof
An overgrown kid who has no desire to settle down, Ben
learns that he has a big decision to make with his kid's
mom-to-be: will he hit the road or stay in the picture?
Courting a woman you've just Knocked Up, however, proves to
be a little difficult when the two try their hands at
dating. As they discover more about one another, it becomes
painfully obvious that they're not the soul mates they'd
hoped they might be.
With Allison's harried sister Debbie (Mann) and hen-pecked
brother-in-law Pete (Rudd) the only parenting role models
the young lovers have, things get even more confusing.
Should they raise the baby together? What makes a happy
lifetime partnership after all? A couple of drinks and one
wild night later, they've got nine confusing months to
figure it out...
