Debbie leaves the place but Allison stays with Ben, drinking and dancing along all night; completely wasted, they end up having a one night stand.

However, Ben needs to grow-up first to raise a family of his own.

One review

  • When it comes to morals this movie is terrible, but it’s still a pretty entertaining movie. The story is basically about a fat hairy guy hooking up with a girl out of his league and also works for the entertainment news channel (not that I ever found Katherine Heigl ever attractive) but that is the point of view the movie wants the audience to have. But than again some audiences my find her hot, I just never really liked her screen presence in movies all that much. But she fit her role in this really well and made it work. Seth Rogen is entertaining to watch in this and isn’t much of a shock that this movie was his big break. Besides the part about the characters having sex without a condom after getting drunk. The movie goes in a direction where it sort of sends a message that if you want a girl to be with you, just get her pregnant cause then the chance of her just dumping you is pretty slim. The movie has some clever dialogue and the interactions between the characters is funny and entertaining. This movie isn’t super funny or anything like that and although the humor probably won’t make you burst out laughing like crazy it still has what it takes to catch the audiences attention with it’s character interactions even if a lot of it is them screwing around.
