Gender-Reversing Judd Apatow's Knocked Up

By Dustin Rowles | Seriously Random Lists | August 5, 2010 |

So, what if, say, the $150 million ensemble comedy Knocked Up were to be rewritten where, instead of focusing on the guy and his friends, the point of view was reversed, and it instead centered upon the pregnant woman and her friends. There's certainly something to be said about pregnancy from a man's point of view (and I found myself identifying a little too often with Knocked Up), but there's a lot of really gross (and potentially very funny) pregnancy humor that only a woman could successfully exploit. And, for God's sake, why can't it be the women sitting around, smoking bongs, and watching television while the upright, career-oriented leading man obsessed about his career?

Just a thought. But if I were to cast the Reverse Knocked Up, I think it'd look something like this:

Jonah Hill --> Ellie Kemper


Martin Starr --> Mindy Kaling


Paul Rudd --> Kristen Wiig


Jason Segel --> Emma Stone


Seth Rogen --> Elizabeth Banks


Jay Baruchel --> Kristen Schaal


Harold Ramis --> Jane Lynch
