INTERVIEW: Writer-Director Judd Apatow on his new comedy ‘Knocked Up’

I’m a huge fan of Judd Apatow. If you don’t know his name perhaps you know his work: “Freaks and Geeks”, “Undeclared”, “The 40 Year-Old Virgin”, and his new movie, “Knocked Up.”  For the last few years he’s been making great stuff but now, thankfully, more people are starting to pay attention and he’s able to do even more. In August we’ll be getting “Superbad” (which he produced) and then next year we’re getting “The Pineapple Express” and “Walk Hard” – other projects he either produced or wrote and I couldn’t be happier.  

I think Judd’s a comedic genius and one whose work I always love. And I’m happy to write that “Knocked Up” is another home-run. Once again Judd has crafted a story that’s based on something very real – what happens when a one night stand leads to an unplanned pregnancy. But while some directors might play it straight, Judd weaves in tons of comedy while still telling a serious story.
