On the heels of 2005's blockbuster "The 40-Year-Old Virgin", writer/director Judd Apatow again mines hilarity from the relatably human in a comedy about a one-night stand with unexpected consequences: "Knocked Up."  Katherine Heigl ("Grey's Anatomy", "Roswell") joins "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" alums Seth Rogan, Paul Rudd, and Leslie Mann for a comic look about the best thing that will ever ruin your best-laid plans: parenthood.

Alison Scott (Katherine Heigl) is an up-and-coming entertainment journalist

whose 24-year-old life is on the fast track.  But it gets seriously derailed when a drunken one-nighter with slacker Ben Stone (Seth Rogen) results in an unwanted pregnancy.  Faced with the prospect of going it alone or getting to know the baby's father, Alison decides to give the lovable doof a chance.

An overgrown kid who has no desire to settle down, Ben learns that he has a big decision to make with his kid's mom-to-be: will he hit the road or stay in the picture?  Courting a woman you've just "Knocked Up," however, proves to be a little difficult when the two try their hands at dating.  As they discover more about one another, it becomes painfully obvious that they're not the soul mates they'd hoped they might be.

With Alison's harried sister Debbie (Leslie Mann) and hen-pecked brother-in-law Pete (Paul Rudd) the only parenting role models the young lovers have, things get even more confusing.  Should they raise the baby together?  What makes a happy lifetime partnership after all?  A couple of drinks and one wild night later, they've got nine confusing months to figure it out...
