The Movie Like Knocked Up That Raunchy Comedy Fans Need To See

"Knocked Up" is writer and director Judd Apatow's second film, which won awards like the People's Choice Award for Favorite Movie Comedy and the American Film Institute Award for Movie of the Year, per IMDb. It stars Seth Rogen as Ben Stone, a sarcastic slacker, and Katherine Heigl as Alison Scott, a workaholic news reporter. After the two of them meet at a nightclub, they have a drunken one-night stand that ends in an accidental pregnancy. The hilarious and often vulgar comedy follows their very different lives as they adjust to their impending parenthood and try to decide whether or not they want to be together.

Though it received quite a bit of backlash for its sexist jokes and Heigl went on to express regret for participating in the raunchy film, "Knocked Up" remains a cult classic. If you're looking for the next movie to add to your watchlist, here's another comedy with a similar tone that you're sure to love.

The 40-Year-Old-Virgin is a raunchy heartwarmer

Those who enjoyed the crass humor of "Knocked Up" will love one of Apatow's other comedies, "The 40-Year-Old-Virgin." It follows Andy Stitzer (Steve Carell), an electronics shop employee who lives alone and — you guessed it — is a virgin at the tender age of 40. His friends try to do something about his lack of sexual experience by giving their (usually bad) advice and taking him to singles events, and one of them, David (Paul Rudd), even donates his "adult media" collection to rouse inspiration. Eventually, Andy finds a love interest all on his own, and the two start a sweet relationship that ends well for all involved.

"The 40-Year-Old-Virgin" is similar to "Knocked Up" in that it has plenty of bawdy and questionable jokes, but also has an underlying message that is much more wholesome. There are also tons of hilarious moments, like when Andy gets his chest waxed and screams obscenities mixed with random non-sequiturs like "Kelly Clarkson!" due to the pain. Not only that, but several of the same stars are in both films, including Rogen, Rudd, Leslie Mann, and Jonah Hill. 

If you're a Judd Apatow fan, and especially a fan of the raunchy rom-com "Knocked Up," you should definitely consider watching "The 40-Year-Old-Virgin" next.
