Judd Apatow is the best friend the schlubs of the world have ever had, for in the world he's created onscreen, they always get the girl. And not just any girl, but the most beautiful girl.

Knocked Up continues the tradition Apatow started in 2005's The 40-Year-Old Virgin, where Steve Carell, as cinema's most inexperienced, least refined lothario, ended up with Catherine Keener anyway. Here, it's Seth Rogen as an arrested adolescent who believes life is best lived stoned and whose aspiration is to create a Web site listing every nude scene ever filmed. He ends up with Grey's Anatomy's Katherine Heigl.

Knocked Up (Universal Pictures) Starring Seth Rogen, Katherine Heigl. Written and directed by Judd Apatow. Rated R. Time 129 minutes.
