Knocked Up is a 2007 romantic comedy film directed and written by Judd Apatow. The movie has a star-studded cast, including Seth Rogen, Katherine Heigl, Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel and Jason Segel. The story follows the lives of Ben Stone (Seth Rogen), an unemployed stoner, and Alison Scott (Katherine Heigl), a beautiful and successful E! Entertainment Television correspondent. After a night of drinking and partying on the night of Alison's promotion, the two end up sleeping together. A few weeks after their one night stand, Alison finds out that she is pregnant with Ben's child, and must decide whether or not to keep the baby.

What ensues is a hilarious and heart-warming story of the two trying to navigate the difficult world of pregnancy and parenthood, while also trying to come to grips with their personal issues and their feelings for each other. Ben is an immature, irresponsible man-child who constantly smokes weed and plays video games, while Alison is a successful, career-driven woman who is used to being in control.

As the two learn to coexist and come to terms with their situation, they also encounter a cast of well-developed supporting characters. Alison's sister and brother-in-law, Debbie (Leslie Mann) and Pete (Paul Rudd), provide a great deal of humor and perspective as they offer Alison and Ben advice and support during their pregnancy. Meanwhile, Ben's group of friends, which includes Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel and Jason Segel, offer comedic relief as they navigate their own personal issues.

Throughout the film, Apatow expertly balances humor with emotional depth. There are numerous laugh-out-loud scenes, such as a hilarious sequence in which Alison is trying to hide her pregnancy from her boss, and another in which Ben and his friends embark on a drug-fueled adventure in Las Vegas.

However, the film also delves into serious themes such as the challenges of pregnancy, the struggles of parenthood and the importance of family. The relationship between Alison and Ben is also well-developed, and the two actors have great chemistry onscreen.

Overall, Knocked Up is a well-written, well-acted and well-directed romantic comedy that offers both laughs and heart. It is a great film to watch with friends or on a date night, and is sure to leave viewers feeling entertained and satisfied.

Knocked Up is a 2007 comedy with a runtime of 2 hours and 13 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.9 and a MetaScore of 85.
