Title: Knocked Up
Year: 2007
Director: Judd Apatow
Rating: NR

Stars:

Plot:
The writer and director of 'The 40-Year-Old Virgin' delivers another hilarious hit comedy!

They say that opposites attract. Well, for slacker Ben (Seth Rogen) and career girl Alison (Katherine Heigl), that's certainly the case – at least for one intoxicated evening. Two months and several pregnancy tests later, Ben and Alison go through a hysterically funny, anxious and heartwarming courtship that leads to huge laughs in the most outrageous comedy of the year!

Extras:
alternate ending
Closed Captioned
Commentary
Deleted Scenes
Featurettes
Outtakes
Scene Access

My Thoughts:
A fun comedy. Also almost the complete cast consists of actors which appeard in Judd Apatov's earlier works, which makes it a fun "reunion" :)
If you liked Freaks and Geeks, Undeclared and 40-Year-Old Virgin this is the movie for you.

My Thoughts:
Not even 15 minutes into this movie and I was already feeling bored. Not a good sign but I decided to stick with it since it was so early. I was a bit surprised to see a movie made in 1973 to be black and white. Not that I mind... just wasn't expecting it. On the other hand I was kinda expecting a bad movie... but this one really bored me. No matter how hard I tried I just couldn't get into it. Every time they had a decent scene... it lost it's momentum as fast as it came. Another stinker out of the Horror Classics: 100 Movie Pack.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

A Madonna tribute episode. I am not really a fan of hers, but I enjoyed this episode.

Fun fact:
Brittany can clearly been seen talking to Artie in the background and having fun with him. Early in season 2 though Artie says, that she never talked to him before.

Notable music:
Glee's first tribute episode. This time, it's for Madonna. I have never been a fan of hers. But I enjoyed some of the songs in this episode.
For example the mash-up of "Borderline" and "Open Your Heart". Sadly I didn't find a clip on YouTube.
Another one I liked is "4 Minutes":

I also really enjoyed "Like A Prayer". I also found no clip from the show, but this live performance is really close to it:
