Knocked Up

Blogger, writer and romantic comedy specialist Billy Mernit isn't afraid to put the boot into films he doesn't like. But this week he's found one to rave about: Knocked Up, written and directed by Judd Apatow. And, as ever with Billy's posts, there are useful insights for writers.
Knocked Up proves what should be the present-day romantic comedy screenwriter's maxim: don't write a "Romantic Comedy."

No, write a story about two fascinating, funny people who irrevocably change each other's lives, and leave all that Same Old Shit (e.g. the Bad Date Montage, et al) out of the picture.
