Don't Forget Knocked Up This Summer!

I saw the new Judd Apatow comedy Knocked Up a few weeks back and it was fantastic, as good as if not better than The 40 Year-Old Virgin. I'm calling the movie lover's comedy of the summer, as it has so many references and movie lover nuggets, including mentioning Spider-Man 3 more times than just about anything else. Given that bit of enthusiasm, a new site has been launched for Knocked Up right at KnockedUpMovie.com. And for those of you on MySpace, here's one for you: myspace.com/knockedupmovie.
This is certainly one of the better comedies this summer and I can't suggest it enough. The strength of the movie is the performances, with Paul Rudd giving a near-perfect supporting performance, my favorite out of any of his work. And Katherine Heigl, besides being absolutely stunningly attractive, does a great job converting from her roles on TV to the big screen in a tough role. And lastly, Leslie Mann as Heigl's older sister gives another fantastic supporting performance, and is the one who delivers probably the funniest moments you'll see in the entire movie.
Again, check out KnockedUpMovie.com and its features and make sure you catch Knocked Up in theaters on June 1st!

I saw a preview screening. I thought 40-Year Old Virgin was funnier, but this one had its moments. It could have used a trimming, considering it's almost 2.5 hours long.....that was just a bit too much, because it dragged through the middle. Lots of funny references though....that is true.
