15 Pieces Of Wisdom From Knocked Up

Judd Apatow just gets us. That’s right, us, humans of the 21st century. He understands our thoughts/plans/fears and talks to audiences like you would a friend in a bar, ensuring his scripts, no matter how comedic, capture modern life at its most heartfelt, juvenile, and mundane.

Which is no more apparent than in 2007’s Knocked Up. And while much of the advice given in the film should be ignored at all cost - gravitational workings of sperm, 500 reasons why you should never wear a beard, etc. - there are some pearls of wisdom definitely worth abiding by.

Here are the best:
