Ben (Seth Rogen) and Alison (Katherine Heigl) find themselves at the same club, where she is celebrating her new promotion. They begin drinking together, and she invites him back to her pool house. The next morning, they learn that they have very little in common, him being a 23-yearold slacker, in the process of establishing fleshofthestars.com, a website that lists the exact scenes in which famous actresses appear nude, and her being a responsible woman on the career fasttrack. Eight weeks later, Alison begins feeling very sick and comes to the conclusion that she is pregnant.She’s a 10 and he’s a 5, so at first you don't think they could make it as a couple, but looks can be deceiving.

Don’t be fooled by the name, this is not another idiot-teen American comedy, but it is actually quite a grown-up, and very real comedy that will keep you laughing throughout. It constantly surprises, and never settles for the clichéd joke. Be warned though, there is more sex and nudity in this movie than you usually see in comedies, but it just serves to make the comedy more real, adding to the hilarity.

All the actors are comedy experts, many of them from Judd Apatow's other great ventures (such as Undeclared, Freaks and Geeks, and 40 Year Old Virgin). Seth Rogan at first glance seems an unlikely leading man. But as the movie goes on, you grow to like him more and more.

This hilarious yet thought -provoking film is not your usual comedy, so an absolute must see.
