Judd Apatow is Everywhere

Judd Apatow, writer/director of comedy gold, is everywhere. In interviews with the cute Paul Rudd, like one from this week's Entertainment Weekly, it's mostly about Judd Apatow. Interviews that include Judd and Seth Rogen are... mostly about Judd Apatow. From The New York Times to MTV, everyone is talking about Judd Apatow, and I think I know why.

With this Friday's Knocked Up, Apatow's follow-up to last summer's hit comedy 40-Year-Old Virgin, he has accomplished what many wish to do but can't: He has created a movie that is both funny and touching, and which appeals to both men and women — a "bromantic comedy," if you will. He loves his yucky humor, but rarely sacrifices the integrity of the story at large to achieve a cheap laugh. He makes fun of both men and women without truly insulting either group. In interviews he comes off as just a funny dude who is also a family man.

I've been fascinated by Apatow ever since his "Freaks and Geeks" days when he gave a hilarious new voice for all the high school weirdos of the world, so I am thrilled that he is not only producing better and better work, but is truly enjoying the spotlight. To see an interview with Apatow and the cast of Knocked Up,

I didn't expect to like "The 40-Year Old Virgin," but now I love it. And I'm SO excited to see "Knocked Up." I really like Judd Apatow's sense of humor...it's raucous, but it has a heart too.

"The 40-Year-Old Virgin" came out in 2005, not 2006, but the Apatow worship is still quite worthy.
