Gender-Reversing Judd Apatow's Knocked Up
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
