Knocked Up is centered around a pair of pretty sisters who work at attracting guys and then delight in holding the young men's quivering egos in their unsteady hands, and getting the sense of power that comes from determining whether to drop that sensitive organ. While the guys are preoccupied with inducing the girls to go to bed with them, the young women are so insecure that no matter how much they're admired, they only feel rejection, suspicion, and distrust. Despite how desperately the horny males pursue them, the women never feel attractive enough or pursued with sufficient vigor. Everyone goes home unfulfilled.
Katherine (27 Dresses) Heigl has a job standing around smiling photogenically and emptyheadedly at a local TV station. She lives with her sister, Leslie (George of the Jungle) Mann, her sister's rich and contemptuous husband (Paul Rudd), and their kids. Rudd avoids his perfectionistic wife as much as he can, while the sisters go to bars seeking reassurance that they're "hot." Heigl drinks too much during one escapade and wakes up in bed with Seth Rogen, a scruffy, John Belushi clone with an unwashed body and a hairy butt.
Rogen is a member of a pack of stoned slackers—illegal aliens from Canada—who, although well past puberty, are unwilling to take the next step toward work and adulthood. Their primary vocational passion is creating a website for quickly viewing naked moments in the filmography of movie stars. These guys are still devoting most of their energy to trying to get laid (mostly unsuccessfully), as they ridicule one another for their various repulsive features of body and soul. When Heigl enters their circle, she's repulsed and disapproving, much as Snow White probably felt when she took up with the Seven Dwarfs
