Only a few reviews to offer today, but one of them is (gasp!) quite positive - for Judd Apatow's Knocked Up. Rarely do populist comedies prove to be consistently funny, understatedly sweet, and reasonably sharp as well, but I'm happy to report this one achieves the trifecta.
And when it hits theaters in early June, it'll certainly be a welcome respite from May's barrage of threequels, of which Shrek the Third (unseen by yours truly due to schedule conflicts) opens today and Pirates of the Caribbean: At Wit's End premieres next Friday (my review arriving mid-week).
