'Knocked Up' showed the baby crowning. - Page 3

post #41 of 47
I picked up on SEVERAL anti-circ remarks, as well. And gotta love the not vaxing comment!

And the argument between them over the fantasy baseball/Spiderman3/I wanna spend time w/ you/I need my sanity is SOOOO me & my dh!

I did like a LOT how he remarked later in the movie that his biggest problem is that his wife loves him SO MUCH she just wants him around all the time.

I nudged DH and said, "Duh!"

And the pregnant sex was HYSTERICAL. "It's all National Geographic!" That is totally how I feel. And wearing a bra during the act?

I do think they could have done without the gratuitous nudity in the movies the guys watch and I wish the f-bomb hadn't been so prevalent, but otherwise the movie was very funny and much of the time rather accurate.

I was hairless at my childbirth to ds.

I got to see it this weekend. Fun movie! One peeve was that they kept calling the OBs gynecologists. I sat next to 2 HS girls who covered their eyes during the crowning scene like it was a horror flick. LMAO.

I give it a thumbs up. It is definitely a step in the right direction in terms of depicting birth in a mainstream movie.

OMG, have I got a story about that movie! My cousin called me after she and all her early 20's girlfriends saw the movie. She asked me if the baby really comes out your vagina!!!!!! I said of course, it is more messy than they showed but overall that is really how it happens. She said no way, WE ALL thought the baby comes out your BUTTHOLE!!!!!!! ROFLMAO!!!! They are twenty year old women in America with no idea where babies come from....a couple of them have even had abortions and still had no idea where babies come from. So the movie was a learning experience and got them asking questions so I was able to insert my natural birthing ideology on their young minds!
Overall, I loved the movie. Lots of vulgar language, but really funny! And I loved the natural aspects like no vax, cosleep, natural birth. The fight with the doc was so accurate and hopefully this brings these issues into the mainstream.

wow...did they miss sex ed in 6th grade? i thought that if you had an abortion they had to explain where the baby is... i'm sorry i just can't wrap my head around the idea that 20 year old does not know where babies come from...i mean a 10 year old yeah but 20?

I did it once before going into labour - really made things a bit easier afterwards. I wish it was as easy to find a specialized and affordable place to have those done here as it was back home in Brazil.

I just saw it yesterday and my first thought at the crowning scene was definitely 'that is the CLEANEST birth ever!!'

Funny movie though. Seems like a movie that will be funnier with repeated watchings.
