Proudly proclaiming the fact that this is from the same people who brought us The 40 Year Old Virgin this is a film that has been getting a lot of positive word of mouth. It seems like months ago that I first read about it. Of course, this may be because there was a delay between the US release and the release over here.

The story is a fairly simple one; on a drunken night out boy(Ben) meets girl(Alison) and she gets knocked up. This film is pretty much about the relationship between the two about-to-be parents as they come to terms with their new responsibilities. But along side this is the story of Pete and Debbie, Alison’s sister. They are married and have children, but still have a lot of figuring out to do as regards themselves and their relationship.

I really enjoyed this film. It has plenty of laughs, as well as being both harsh and endearing in depicting the relationships in the two couples.

It isn’t perfect though. I didn’t agree with the rave reviews of 40 Year Old Virgin, but this is better, although still not a film I’d be racing to go rewatch. Plenty to entertain though.

    This is one that I tried to get to with friends in the theatre but it just never worked out. I'll be checking it out on DVD simply because I think Katherine Heigl is yummy. Glad to hear that it is at least entertaining as well.

    I thought it was hilarious. I don't normally like this type of movie, and I really don't like Katherine Heigl, so I was really surprised by how much I liked it.

    It'll work just as well at home as it did on the big screen Carl.

    Kristina there were plenty of laugh out loud moments, and it was never less than entertaining. So thumbs up :)

    this seems pretty cool, but is that shaggy-haired bloke funny, though? from the ad i could see that the script was pretty good, but that bloke didn't do much for me.

    haha! i found this hilarious! oh my.

    seth rogen is my new hero. i stumbled across this on sky movies and at first i was like "where's this going?" and "is this funny? it seems a bit depressing", this was when katherine heigl was at the guy's house and meeting his friends for the first time.

    but then, as i carried on watching it i got into the groove of the humour and i strarting finding it hilarious!

    and its such a cute story too… awww…!
