Look at me getting caught up on PopCulture2007! And Knocked Up is exactly what I was talking about in my Walk Hard review with respect to character-based comedy vs. jokes (and it makes an excellent contrast since there's such an overlap of actors and writer). There are plenty of jokes in Knocked Up, but never at the expense of us really learning about the characters. And I was also surprised to discover how brutally honest the film is about the dynamics of marriage and parenthood.
