Ann and Les would like to knock-around anyone involved in the creation of Knocked Up (2006.) They wholeheartedly agree that this is a gross film. The slacker male lead played by Seth Rogen finds himself about to be a father after a surprising one-night stand with a successful reporter played by Kathryn Heigl. They decide they’re now a couple and go about doing the only thing that makes them a couple with a whole lot of expletives thrown in for good measure. Beware. For their GREENLIGHT Rentals, Les recommends a film with a similar story-line but handled with much more finesse in Love With the Proper Stranger (1963.) In this film Natalie Wood plays a Macy’s salesgirl who has a fertile one-night stand with a jazz musician played an unknown Steve McQueen. They try to work it out as reasonable though scared and fearful adults and the resulting story is much easier to digest. Ann recommends a much lighter film about difficult men-women relationship. In this one, Kate Hudson plays a columnist who does everything she can to sabotage her new relationship with a hunk played by Matthew McConaughey but to her surprise he’s got amazing sticking power which plays havoc on her deadline as she is determined to write the definitive rules about How To Lose A Guy in Ten Days (2003.)
