The writer and director of The 40-year-old Virgin delivers another a 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 journey that leads to huge laughs in the most outrageous comedy of the year!

Despite Rogen's and Hiegl's competence, it's the little characters that really make this film shine. Leslie Mann, Alison's older sister, somehow seems like both a potentially wonderful mother and potential basket case. She teeters on greatness and disaster and I love and identify with her for it. Jason Segel, whose turn on CBS's How I Met Your Mother is nothing short of phenomenal, shines here as a slacker friend, unfoundedly cocky, and somehow endearing. He effortlessly controls the screen. Most wonderful, though, is Paul Rudd's Pete. I've never seen a character like him animated on the screen. After attempting just now several times, it's impossible to describe what's with this character. I guess there's a kind of absent, off-hand responsibility to him that just makes for compelling screen time. An Oscar worthy performance that, sadly, will never manifest in a nomination because of the kind of movie this is.
The film is undeniably funny on all levels.Read more ›
The movie is so funny because of Rogen's genius improvisational skill and how well that played off of Heigl's almost innocent character. The interplay is so unbelievably funny that I've wondered if in the script, against Ben Stone's name, there are the words, "Let Seth Rogen do and say whatever he wants - it'll be funnier than anything we can write anyway."
Here is what has me thoroughly confused, however - the search for someone to play Ben Stone that appears in the Special Features section of the DVD. I kept going, "What?!" "Is this for real?!"
First, I have never seen, in similar sections of other DVDs, i.e., casting and screen tests and so forth, the actual individuals who auditioned and didn't get the part (except where, for example, it's already made the news like, say, "Gary Oldman turned down an offer to play X in Y movie, and the part went to Tim Roth").
Second, not only were the names of the Ben Stone "hopefuls" mentioned, but there were EXTENSIVE shots of them in scenes with Katherine Heigl, showing where the process broke down and led to endless bleeping out of cussing, and smashing of props, and accusations of "stifling my creativity", and so on!!Read more ›
takes a silly high concept Hollywood idea (slacker slob impregnates
upper class hottie, in spite of all odds they have the baby and fall in
love), injects it with sharp humor, highbrow and low, pathos, good
acting, and even some real insight into people and relationships.
Seth Rogan is terrific, but so is Catherine Heigel, Paul Rudd, and
everyone in the supporting roles.
Not a huge visual upgrade between the Blu-ray and the regular
DVD, so if cost is a factor...
) The "Finding Ben Stone" mockumentary featurette IS INCLUDED, however the chunk with Orlando Bloom (about 3 min or so) was trimmed from this feature...for some reason, presumably disc space on the blu ray. A shame because this was actually pretty funny. And...
) The "You Know how I Know You're Gay?" easter egg of Rudd and Rogen driving to Vegas, also about 3 min. I'm not sure when the blu-ray was released but this omission might say more about how the world has moved on from gay=lame jokes in just a few years.
In any case both of these features are readily available online so only the most OCD completists (you know who you are) will miss having them. Additionally, 2 extra Loudon Wainright songs from McCabe's are included that are not on dvd. A fair trade for the significant picture improvement for the film itself on the blu ray, and the marginal picture improvement on most the bonus features. Incidentally I'm watching on a 7 year old 40inch 1080p Sony if that's helpful to anyone.
