Evidently, this book is one of the worst things to read when you’re actually pregnant, as it’s mostly a lot of scare tactics, terrifying you with the worst possibilities of pregnancy that you wind up a wreck wondering how many horrible diseases you and your baby will have. Also, C’thulu shows up at the end, and that’s just a shitty ending. This movie seems to be geared towards a similar goal, horrifying you at the possibilities of how terrible a film about pregnancy can be.
Look, kids. It’s not a perfect movie by any stretch, but Knocked Up probably says everything this movie could possibly say about the rigors of pregnancy with more heart, drama, and humor than is possible in a movie featuring Jennifer Lopez.
