Review – Knocked Up (2007)

Dave Corkery

Championed as the sleeper-hit of the US summer, this simple story of a one-night stand turned 9 month ordeal gathered a lot of buzz overseas before the trailers even made it to Irish cinemas. In a movie summer full of sequel-crud, Knocked Up apparently shone through as an original breath of comedy fresh-air.

So here we are several months later and the small comedy that could has finally made it to UK and Irish cinemas, carrying with it not just a bun in the oven, but an immense wave of hopeful anticipation. Fearful that it may not live up to expectations, excitement was duly reigned in on our part. Fortunately, and unlike almost every other film of this year’s disappointing summer, Knocked Up lives up to its own hype.
