I liked it a lot, but I didn’t find the cops as funny as everyone else did. They were too cartoonish in a world that was otherwise realistic, and so irresponsible and idiotic that they were often more scary than hilarious. But I do like Rogen and Hader (who is a standout on Saturday Night Live), and they did fine with the material they were given.
I’m a huge Michael Cera fan, and he did not disappoint here as awkward and sweet Evan. I found Jonah Hill’s Seth character a lot less worthy of empathy than Evan and Fogel, as he was a major dick to them most of the time, but Jonah Hill made you like him in spite of everything. I’ve known too many guys who are just like Seth, and while they are amusing in small doses, you have to distance yourself from them or they’ll drag you down and alienate everyone else from you. Fogel/McLovin annoyed me but then grew on me, although I am terrified his lines could become the next Austin Powers or Napoleon Dynamite-style catch-phrases spouted by idiots at every opportunity.
It was nice that all three of them had their own little quests and grew and changed over the course of the film, not unlike another coming-of-age story that took place in one night, American Graffiti. In the end, I liked Knocked Up more than Superbad because it was just as funny but also had more heart and more of a plot. My girlfriend didn’t like Superbad much at all (it really isn’t a girl movie), although she saw Knocked Up twice in the theater and loved it.
Also, I have no idea how old they are, but both of the main girls were pretty damn hot.
