Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[A] very funny Peter Pan-and-Wendy- get-preggers story."
‑ Bob Mondello,
"The year's best comedy; one that confirms the arrival of an extended group of talent that looks set to take the studio comedy crown from the likes of Ferrell, Stiller and Carrey."
‑ Ben Walters, Time Out
"[Apatow] makes responsibility and commitment funny; no mean feat."
‑ Aaron Mesh, Willamette Week
"With sparkling performances from Rogen and Heigl, Apatow once again shows his sharp eye for talent and continuing knack for hits."
‑ Tim Basham, Paste Magazine
"It's a hysterical, well acted, and wonderful glimpse at impending parenthood from a man's perspective..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Ultimately the film says that fate has a way of kicking you up a notch, if you can somehow let yourself rise to the occasion."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"Knocked Up isn't going to help change the world or anything, but at the very least it may help take one's mind off the relentlessly dismal headlines. I don't know what greater service a mere movie can perform these days."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"What makes most of Knocked Up work is its ability to squeeze big laughs out of real-world situations."
‑ Jeff Meyers, Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
"The jokes, which are in the absolute poorest taste, remain hilarious, while a newer, deeper humanism, sensed in momentary flashes in the earlier film, is now fully on display."
‑ Peter Brunette, Screen International
"It's a movie with heart and with balls, and it knows when to use each of them."
‑ Ali Gray,
"Although this story about a mismatched couple expecting a baby strains credibility and sometimes pushes the limits of good taste, it delivers plenty of belly laughs."
‑ Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"A refreshingly frank, funny odd-couple comedy with engaging leads and too many belly laughs to count."
‑ Tom Charity,
"Knocked Up proves that hit comedy doesn't have to dumb down for its demographic."
‑ Andrew Collins, Radio Times
"The movie is a decisive breakthrough for Apatow, whose comic instincts go hand in hand with an unfashionable empathy."
‑ Ben Kenigsberg, Time Out Chicago
"If Apatow was seeking to make a film that's smutty and funny, but also romantic and realistic about relationships, he's succeeded admirably."
‑ Nick Levine, Digital Spy
