1758 - Knocked Up (commentary
This film is a huge leap forward for Apatow as a filmmaker. Not only is it visually miles ahead from his first film, but the storytelling feels tighter (even in this extended version) and the emotions more toned. You get a real sense that he's in command of his craft here. The commentary was was entertaining enough with Apatow, Rogen, and Bill Hader along. They start off promising that it's going to be like a film school in a box, but it's not really. Still enjoyable enough for fans though! Made me want to re-watch it with the commentary off!
One more night of unpacking in the shop... one more Apatow film :)
