the ugly truth about (some) boys who like ‘Knocked Up’

Peter Howell in the Toronto Star claims to have for us “the ugly truth about Knocked Up”:

Funny, isn’t it, how willingly we buy movie plots about impossible casino heists, miraculous spider bites and rock-star pirates.

And yet something as simple as a beautiful woman getting involved with a not-so-beautiful man strikes some of us as the height of absurdity.

Oops: here it is. No one must deny men their fantasy that no matter what they look like and how unsocialized they are, a gorgeous, smart babe will want him.

But Howell’s not done:

What would be far more unbelievable onscreen, frankly, would be a situation where a good-looking guy gets a homely girl pregnant and then decides to stay with her.

Funny, isn’t it, that some folks can more willingly buy movie plots about impossible casino heists, miraculous spider bites and rock-star pirates than they could buy something that actually subverts the culturally approved status quo.
