On the heels of 2005's blockbuster The
40-Year-Old Virgin, writer/director Judd Apatow again mines
hilarity from the relatably human in a comedy about a one-night stand with
unexpected consequences: Knocked Up. Katherine Heigl (Grey's
Anatomy, Roswell) joins Virgin alums Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd
and Leslie Mann for a comic look about the best thing that will ever ruin
your best-laid plans: parenthood.
Allison Scott (Heigl) is an up-and-coming entertainment journalist whose
24-year-old life is on the fast track. But it gets seriously derailed when
a drunken one-nighter with slacker Ben Stone (Rogen) results in an unwanted
pregnancy. Faced with the prospect of going it alone or getting to know
the baby's father, Allison decides to give the lovable doof a chance.
