Lisa and I just spent a delightful couple of hours watching KNOCKED UP. (Research. Really.)
This is one of the funniest movies I have seen in a long, long time. It's packed with odd yet truthful characters. There isn't a clam in the script. No forced embarrassment, no lame-o contrived third-act misunderstanding. Just a really sweet, funny comedy.
And guys? Take a date to this movie. You will totally get lucky.

I hope it's as good as you say. Going to see it tonight with the fiancee, and I REALLY need to get my mind off of something that's ROYALLY pissing me off.
I'm definitely with you on this one .. funniest friggin movie I've seen in many years, and one of the smartest too ... I probably could have done without that pinkeye scene, but even that was extremely funny
LOL - I'm not sure guys are going to "get lucky" after a movie about a pregnancy resulting from a one night stand.
But anyway, I really enjoyed the film, despite that it had problems with continuity (E! news jumped in and out of the film) and believability. Plus, if it's the funniest movie in years, then maybe you should watch Hot Fuzz.
But Paul Rudd was HILARIOUS. And you're absolutely right about no clams. The jokes were VERY SMART. Jane Espenson would be proud.
Except that it makes no sense why the girl would fall for the guy.
I get why she fell for him, all cute and enthusiastic and stuff. I just thought the middle and the "fall" took too long (even though I guess that might be more realistic than most romantic comedies movies).
It's nice not to be disappointed, for once.
Some of my favorite movies include Ghost World and Spider-Man 2, and seeing Art School Confidential and Spider-Man 3 were extremely depressing experiences.
So the fact that the follow-up to another favorite, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, was just as high quality, was a delight in itself!
I thought it was hilarious and completely original. But maybe not as compelling a story as 40-Year-Old-Virgin, because your heart really broke for that guy throughout. This guy, you just wanted him to take a shower. I kept waiting for the beauty make-over scene, a la Pretty Woman, where he gets a suit or some shampoo or something, and tells her he just wants the fairy tale. My date didn't get lucky with me, but only because he's gay. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
