The Seth Rogen Comedy Blowing Up The Netflix Charts Right Now

In “Knocked Up,” Ben (Rogen) is a typical party-loving slacker who has a one-night stand with the career-focused Allison (Katherine Heigl). Their lives take a wild turn when Allison reveals that she’s pregnant, forcing the polar opposites to come together and put aside their differences to raise a child. The pic also stars comedic heavyweights Bill Hader, Jason Segel, Jonah Hill, Paul Rudd, and Leslie Mann in supporting roles. The success of “Knocked Up” compelled director Judd Apatow to tackle a sequel based on Rudd and Mann’s characters titled “This Is 40.” While that film wasn’t as favorably received, Apatow has a “This Is 40” sequel idea — there’s just one thing holding the filmmaker back. 

The success of “Knocked Up” propelled Rogen to superstardom, allowing him to headline some of the funniest and most prominent films from that era. In 2016, Rogen looked back on the film positively. “As I was watching it [recently, for the first time in years], I thought, f**k, we are so funny together, me and Katherine. And as we were making the movie, honestly I would make a dozen movies with her,” Rogen said on “The Howard Stern Show” (via E! News). 

Unfortunately, Heigl and Rogen never worked again, but the “Knocked Up” star continues to make strides, especially as a producer. The creative helped bring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles back to the big screen and is partially responsible for Prime Video’s “The Boys” — a show that continues to shock Rogen.
