How Funny Is KNOCKED UP? So Funny, They Could Cut This Scene Out - And It's Still Funnier Than Anything You've Seen This Year!

Hey folks, Harry here... KNOCKED UP is funny as hell. So funny - that they cut some hilarious stuff out, that ultimately... is just as funny as the stuff left in the film, but that doesn't advance the story - so it ends up on the cutting room floor - waiting for the deleted scenes section of the DVD... Only - there's so much stuff that fucking funny, that they figure, they could post this stuff for free on the internet - knowing they still have tons of funny stuff left over, for that DVD, and in the movie, so why spoil that stuff, let's just give you a taste of how funny KNOCKED UP is. Enjoy...

    You're absolutely right. This looks like one of the few movies where it might actually work, but improv has basically taken over comedies these days and I think the vast majority of the time it totally sucks. Nobody writes actual comedy anymore.

    Extremely Hilarious

    by Darcher

    I saw this back on May 1 at a screening at my university. Honestly very funny and kind of moving in an odd way. The story stands up very well on its own. Do not miss this movie, glad to see some original stuff during the summer of sequels. I'm sure some of you are out seeing Pirates right now, but so far the sequels are 0 for 2. Knocked Up is great, Superbad looks super funny. Summer of Seth Rogen!

    by CyberBeavis1326

    Seriously sounds like the awful one note jokes like in "40 Year Old Virgin." Honestly, I didn't care much for "40 year old virgin", it was ok. "Knocked Up" to me looks like more of the same.

    God bless editors

    by tiredpm

    The dialog and delivery is funny, but it isn't as funny out of context. In the movie this would kill. As it is, it made me chuckle, but it seems like, I don't know, comedy for comedy's sake out of context. Still funnier than anything in Wild Hogs, though :-)

  • May 25, 2007, 12:19 a.m. CST

    Jonah Hill is the motherfucking man

    by Garbageman33

    Between this and Superbad, he's about to be a very big star. In fact, from everything I've seen, Superbad looks better than Knocked Up.

    Explain: Doesn't advance the story?

    by Black Satin 2

    Most of the time, good scenes are cut out of comedies because they don't advance the story. THat scene seemed to be a pretty nice bonding scene between the two actors. It wasn't dull; it wasn't overly gross and the payout hit the nail on the head. Now if I see a scene that doesn't do that to me, I'm going to remember seeing that scene and wish it was in there. Isn't it possible they could place that scene in if it winds up on a cable channel like FX?

  • May 25, 2007, 7:01 a.m. CST

    Hilarious

    by onefatman

    I nearly wet myself it's that funny. Jonah hill is the sex. On toast. He was the only reason to watch "Accepted" as well. "I hope you have hobo stab insurance". Champagne comedy right there.

    by Petro45

    For the first 3/4 of the scene, I wasn't sure if it was funny or overdone. The last 1/4 brought it home brilliantly, though. "It was just the head, I swear. I didn't suck on it."

    Hey, TopHat,...

    by BizarroJerry

    I fear you're sort of right about the way some of these comedies are going. Most of these guy characters in these flicks are a bunch of losers. Very typical "regular guy" stereotypes as seen in beer commercials. I did find 40YoV to be a funny movie, but one of the main points was these guys who think they're cool and know all about the world turned out to be just as -- or more -- fucked up than Carell's character. Uh, but I'm babbling. More to the point, there seems to be a growing "men are stupid neanderthals" theme all over TV, ads and movies. Can we even out to a nice "men and women are both stupid" middle ground?

  • May 25, 2007, 8:57 a.m. CST

    by lazy

    the men are "Very typical "regular guy" stereotypes as seen in beer commercials." I hate that. The other woman character is so horrible and when she gets hers, it is just sweet. The point is, the girls aren't angels. It is a little more realistic, like Freaks and Geeks. But not realistic like, life.

    Those who think this is a lame 1-note joke/gag

    by Reynard Muldrake

    A.) Don't have a sense of humor B.) Haven't seen the movie. ("spoiler") This is that much funnier (as a scene, deleted or not) because in the movie (also got to an advance screening and loved it), Seth Rogen and his Compadres are trying to start a website that tells visitors the exact minute/second in every movie that nudity appears...so all they do is sit around and watch movies with remote and clipboard in hand all day and have hilarious conversations about them. C.) Don't have a sense of humor. "Hahuhha...what?"

    by Garbageman33

    True Jonah Hill Story

    by Garbageman33

    A couple years ago, I was working on this online thingie for a client (I'm an ad guy) and we needed someone to kinda be the site's tour guide and say occasional funny things. I suggested (nay, demanded) Jonah Hill based on his all too brief scene in 40-Year-Old Virgin. Well, long story short, I ended up getting overruled and they went with Dmitri Martin. Who? Exactly. Fortunately, the whole thing ended up getting shitcanned, otherwise I'd have had to go upside some people's heads.

    Rear your child line in trailer/commercials is lame

    by the_pissboy1

    That line makes me cringe every time. It's so juvenile. The rest of the stuff's funny as hell. But that "rear your child" thing...god, kill me now.

  • May 25, 2007, 2:30 p.m. CST

    f69 - she couldn't keep a straight face..so?

    by the_pissboy1

    People in the REAL world laugh. In 40YO Virgin the characters laughed at each other all the time. People laugh...and what he was saying could make you laugh if you a) thought it was funny, or b) thought he was crazy. Nothing wrong with laughing in a scene where somebody is ranting.

  • May 25, 2007, 2:34 p.m. CST

    There are two actual scenes on youtube

    by Garbageman33

    And, unfortunately, neither of them is nearly as good as this one. In fact, the one where she shows up at his apartment is pretty painful to watch. Still excited to see the movie, just not as excited as I was after first watching this clip.

    Good thing that hit the cutting room floor

    by pilotgrl

    I loved 40-Year-Old-Virgin and I'm all for a movie filled with off-color jokes but this is far from funny. As Bizarro Jerry said much earlier on, the Brokeback Mountain jokes are stale, just like this is. Hopefully the final version is a vast improvement.

    by theBigE

    Is this what is supposed to pass for humor now? Lots of f-bombs and and describing gay sex for laughs? Great. This might be funny late at night while drunk, but if this is a taste of what this movie is going to be... I think I'll pass. My excitement for this and Superbad has been fading slowly.

    Not funny

    by blakes7

    This scene would have been funnier (perhaps) if Brokeback jokes were not run into the ground a long time ago. I must also point out that Southpark pretty much put a nail in the coffin for gay-movie jokes, years prior to the release of "Brokeback" with their "Gay cowboys eating pudding" joke. I am looking forward to Superbad, but knocked up just does not seem a funny enough premise to sustain a whole movie. On another note, I got something that will top this scene. It's from the funniest show on t.v. right now; PeeP Show in England. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCL-qnBQzUo

    And WTF is this with Brokeback Mountain?

    by Sepulchrave

    That movie no fucking in it at all. Oh right, so America is such a bunch of pussies that it can't watch two guys rummaging fully clothed in half-darkness. There was more sex in Wilde (1997), for Chrissakes. Every country in Europe has done mainstream films that were gayer and sexier than BM for years.
