Knocked Up is a comedy filled with how a person tackles his/her transition into parenthood. And lots of foul-language. Starring Seth Rogen as Ben Stone and Katherine Heigl as Allison Scott, it presents scenes of pervertedness and horniness that are, at times, horrifying. At first, I thought it was a retard jackass comedy that was meant to elevate your libido. But it is actually more than that! It offers indespicable insight on how a couple should support each other for the whole nine months of expecting–like I said earlier, “the transition into parenthood.”
Anybody who watches it should realize the significance of planned and/or protected sex. Alongside this is the role of communication in intercourse. If you do check it out, you’ll understand me more, especially if you get to see the scene when Ben and Allison engage in the passionate expression of love–in a lousy way … although it is funny … He! He!
Though it has some inconsistencies and irrelevances in between (I was surprised to learn that it was a big hit!), I did feel suspense at what would happen in the end (although it was predictable), and what would happen to the baby. Unlike in Juno where the baby was given for adoption, Ben and Allison kept and cared for the child. They actually became a family (a responsible adult move)–but what a bizarre way of becoming a family!
If you don’t have patience in a movie like this, you might not enjoy it. I did. The portrayal of a man’s nature when it comes to accidental love and marriage amuses me. A woman’s reaction to the man’s nature amuses me. How the man changes for the best and in the end, gets back together with the woman amazes me. Is life really that stereotypical? Mostly. Most lives are like that. In one version or another.
