Review:

NOCKED UP is an extremely vulgar, but often humorous, comedy about a beautiful stylish entertainment television journalist named Allison (Katherine Heigl) getting drunk, fornicating with a big loser named Ben (Seth Rogen) and winding up pregnant. To the movie’s credit, talk of having an abortion is quickly squelched. A doctor visit at only eight to nine weeks into the pregnancy results in an image showing a heartbeat. Even with a career just getting started and a father figure who is an embarrassment, Allison decides to have the baby and try to get to know the father better.

That said, this not a movie Christians will enjoy. If you were to bleep out all the vulgarity, there would be little dialogue left. Also, the characters are involved in horrid, repulsive behavior. The movie features heavy drug and alcohol abuse and vivid sex scenes with appalling running commentary. Ben and his deadbeat roommates are designing a website detailing which movies feature major stars naked at one point in the movie.

Allison tries to see if she can build a lasting relationship with Ben only to experience a roller coaster ride of hopes and disappointments. The turmoil is compounded by the involvement of Allison’s domineering sister, Debbie (Leslie Mann), and her henpecked husband Pete (Paul Rudd).

While Ben, trying to do the “right” thing, proposes marriage to Allison, he is turned down as Allison wants to get to know him better first. Getting to know him better includes more sex, including sex while VERY pregnant.

God made mankind to save sex until after marriage. He also calls for marriage to be between two people who share a common faith in God. The only mention of God in this movie is profane.
