This is a comedy that expands on the life if the couple from the film Knocked Up. I found the film to be pretty messy but it was genuine and quite funny from time to time. I am not sure if it is necessary to see this film in the theater but renting it might be a good idea. Jud Apatow has a certain style and hs films are always a bit chaotic but i don't mind it because it resembles real life. I liked the chemistry between Rudd and Mann, the dialogue was believable and quite funny, however I think the film suffered because Apatow tried to jam in as many jokes as possible and it did not work most of the time. I did think that the cast did a great job and I was especially impressed with Paul Rudd. Overall, the film is quite forgettable but if you want a light comedy this film would do the trick
The film was not as good as I expected it to be, however it was not horrible and if you are looking for a comedy about real-life relationship, this film is definitely for you. The movie was quite messy but in a weirdly lovable and genuine way and I really enjoyed Rudd’s and Mann’s performances, they have a good on-screen chemistry and are believable as a couple. It’s Apatow’s film and I kind of expected it to be imperfect in a way and it tied into the message of the film pretty good- accept the imperfections, because they are part of life. I found the dialogue to be witty and crisp, Rudd and Mann delivered it with perfection. Overall, I do not think it is worth seeing this film on the big screen, however renting it might be fun.
