|Home: BigScreen Journal - Can "Knocked Up" Repeat the Success of "The 40 Year Old Virgin?"|
Two years ago, audiences reacted favorably to Steve Carrell's depiction of "The 40 Year Old Virgin," in which a guy who has reached his 40s with his virginity intact. It opened in first place to good reviews, and stayed in the Top 10 at the Box Office for 7 weeks.
The movie's director is now releasing his latest effort, "Knocked Up," with Seth Rogen and Katherine Heigl as a couple whose one-night-stand turns into a pregnancy. She's a high-powered executive, he's a bit of a loser, but they decide to see if they have what it takes to be a couple. If you enjoyed "The 40 Year Old Virgin," this movie should be right up your alley.
If you'd rather have something a little darker to enjoy this weekend, Kevin Costner may have just what you're looking for in "Mr. Brooks." Costner plays a loving family man and respected business icon who just happens to have an alter-ego which is addicted to killing (played by William Hurt). Demi Moore plays a detective on his trail.
