Judd Apatow's "Knocked Up" is a national treasure of a romantic comedy film that is still as relevant as ever due to the fact of Apatow's knack of wiriting witty dialogue and had a dream team of a cast that knew their roles to the tee and weren't afraid to improvise in the process. I'm grateful for E-Zone and XG who are co-hosts of the We Don't Smoke the Same Podcast, joined me to go a on a deep dive of this film, discussing relationships and how relatable it is to us and both men & women in general. As raunchy as this film is, it's sweet and has a message where being honest with yourself goes a long way especially the decisions we make. Sometimes coasting through life isn't the way to go. In this case, hooking up with a random person and deciding to not only keep the child but to raise as a couple is a win. It's very traditional and as Apatow challeneged himself with the subtext of time, he was able to write scenes that explored relationship and family dynamics and wasn't afraid to push through. The film has countless one-liners embedded in memorable scenes that fills into many pockets of the plot. Good story with a easily digestable plot. Sometimes, it's not what it's about, but HOW it's about. Although it's primarily a male point of view, it goes hand-in-hand with what women go through when it comes to pregnancies and being a woman period. Not a serious comedy film but it's sweet, almost wholesome, and it does it's best to be honest with the audience and that's something I can always get behind on.

Three and a half out of four tokes.
