Oh No They Didn’t: Friday’s Review Rage

|

Knockedup Every week we round up selections from the funniest, most obscene and brutal film criticism out there so that you know when to blow your cash at the theaters and laugh a little at Hollywood’s expense. This week: The hysterically funny insta-classic, Knocked Up.

"Standing ovulation! Former ‘Virgins’ deliver another knock-out." – The New York Post

"There’s no way pin-up-pretty Katherine Heigl would end up with soaked-in-bongwater Seth Rogen, not even while drunk on a gallon of Everclear and stoned on a field of your finest homegrown." – The Village Voice

"Most women, I imagine, will scoff with incredulity . . . Ben [Seth Rogen] is the last person [Katherine Heigl] would have chosen. Most men, meanwhile, will be too busy watching through their fingers. To them, this is The Omen." – The New Yorker

"Rogen is dynamite as the shlub who’s surprised to find more in himself than the need to eat, fart and f*ck. The sex scene in which he props himself on top of Alison’s swollen belly and nearly faints at the thought of his penis poking away at the fetus is one for the comedy time capsule." – Rolling Stone

"The hero is a slob, the story is about what the title says it’s about, and the movie goes about telling it in a style that is casually profane, sexually explicit, often coarse and occasionally crude. Should the film be seen, then, as just another sign of civilization’s decline? Not for a moment." – The Wall Street Journal
