Do You Think Knocked Up Is Sexist?

In a recent Vanity Fair interview , Katherine Heigl stated that she didn't really like Knocked Up because she thinks it's sexist. She says, "It paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys. It exaggerated the characters, and I had a hard time with it, on some days. I'm playing such a bitch; why is she being such a killjoy? Why is this how you're portraying women?"

While I think her character is underdeveloped in comparison to the other (male) characters (i.e. why does she have absolutely no friends?), I'm not sure what I think about the statement that the depiction of women in Knocked Up is sexist. What do you think?

And speaking of Judd Apatow movies, you can currently check out a clip from his next project Pineapple Express, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco.
