There's always something more than an average comedy with Apatow's films and productions. It's most of all incredibly well written and funny, gross, but also sweet and finely crafted. I loved that one.
La forma en la que Apatow entiende a la comedia puede comprenderse, quizás, a tráves de aquel dicho de Chaplin en el que aseguraba que "al final, todo es un gag". La totalidad de nuestra vida, entonces, esta repleta de leves accidentes que nos suceden, como a éstos personajes, cuando menos los esperamos. La torta cae sobre nuestra cara y en vez de molestarnos, Apatow nos muestra que hay que saber saborearla mejor.
I was kinda - divided - after watching KNOCKED UP. I still didn't know whether I liked this movie or not. I liked KNOCKED UP just because of its humor. The humor never failed me. I always laugh when the humor came out. I didn't like KNOCKED UP because of its drama. In my opinion, the drama just went flat. I know it succeed to capture "pregnant outside marriage" theme. But I feel it's just ordinary. Still entertaining
