The writer and director of The 40-Year Old Virgin delivers another a hilarious hit comedy! They say that opposites attract. Well, for slacker Ben (Seth Rogen) and career girl Alison (Katherine Heigl), that's certainly the case - at least for one intoxicated evening. Two months and several pregnancy tests later, Ben and Alison go through a hysterically funny, anxious and heartwarming journey that leads to huge laughs in the most outrageous comedy of the year!
This is an overly long but not completely unfunny film that attempts to mesh together the rom-com and the 'gross out male humour' genres. There are some genuinely funny moments - especially where the girls try to get into a nightclub and meet a sensitive doorman who admits he really hates his job. However the film is let down by poor lead actors who, may be funny individually, fail to generate any on screen chemistry - and a tendency to try and disgiuse this by relying too much on crude adolescent humour at moments when it wasn't needed.
Well, this has got to be the worst film I've seen for a good few years. It's not funny, the script and story are as dull as dishwater and the whole cast, apart from Katherine who just about holds onto her professional credibility, are under the illusion that what they are doing is so clever and interesting. Sadly, it is not. It's overlong, has totally unnecessary shots of childbirth (yeah the bit no-one wants to see), no laughs and I couldn't wait for it to end (in fact I wish I hadn't). Avoid this at all costs.
