Corrected entry: Ben could not have gotten an apartment, because as he explained to Allison when they were having dinner, he's an illegal alien from Vancouver, Canada.


Correction: Some landlords wouldn't care and most illegal aliens have false documentation of one kind or another.

Correction: We don't know what happened in between the time when they finished having sex, and when Allison woke up to get ready for work. For all we know, Ben could have picked it during the night when he had to use the washroom and thrown it in the garbage, and forgot about it because he was drunk.


Corrected entry: When Alison is interviewing the celebrities near the end of the film, it is at the 2006 MTV Movie Awards (the year the movie was being shot). However, earlier in the film, the character's mention going to see "Spiderman 3", which came out in 2007.


Correction: The 2006 MTV Movie Awards deal with films released in the year 2006, but the award ceremony takes place during the following year for obvious reasons. The 2006 MTV Movie Awards ceremony was held on June 3rd 2007, a month after Spider-Man 3 was released, making it entirely reasonable that they could have seen it.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Allison is taking the girls to school, the girls start to argue about what music to listen to. Sadie says she wants to listen to Rent, then Charlotte says she wants to listen to Green Day. When she says the line, Sadie is mouthing the line too.

Correction: Sadie is not mouthing Charlotte's line. She is simply twitching her lips, as many people do without even noticing, and the way her lips are moving they aren't even in sync with what her sister is saying.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Alison is having breakfast with Ben, when she's sat down she is wearing earrings that dangle, but when she stands up to leave they are hoops.

Correction: The earrings that she is wearing are the same throughout the entire scene. They are hoops, and when she is sitting you see their front, so you can't see the hole in the middle, except at times when she moves her head.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Ben and Allison are leaving the hospital with their new baby girl you can see that all the presents and balloons Ben is holding are to celebrate the birth of a baby boy. As he walks out the hospital doors you can see the balloon's face as it is turning and it says "It's a Boy!"

Correction: He didn't buy the decorations. They were bought by friends and well-wishers who obviously mistook the gender.

Corrected entry: When Alison and her sister are writing Ben the e-mail saying she needs to talk to him, they send it without writing her name at the bottom. Yet when the boys at Ben's receive it, he reads out her name.

Correction: In an email programme such as Microsoft Outlook Express there is areas that you can put your personal details such as email address and name. Therefore when it sends, the email recipient will see the email address and the name of the sender regardless of whether they put it in the email.

Corrected entry: When Ben is proposing, Alison's hair keeps switching back and forth, over her ear in some shots and then behind it in others.

Correction: It looks like it, but it doesn't. When the camera pulls back Alison turns towards Ben and you can see it was an effect of the angles they were using.

Corrected entry: In the scene where all the guys are at the club, Jonah tells Martin he is heading out for the night, but later on in the club when Ben is dancing with Alison, Jonah stats he thinks Ben is doing to much of the dice thing.

Correction: It's not clear what the mistake is, but if it's that Jonah stuck around instead of heading out, it happens regularly. A friend in a group says he needs to leave, and gets talked into staying for another beer, or something, and stays for longer than he intends. Happens all the time.

Corrected entry: When Ben takes the 2 Corona Beers from the bar, (because the bartender ignored him) he left the money on the bar. In the next scene he is drinking the beers and the beers are open. The only problem is Coronas are not twist offs, So how did Ben get those beers open?

Correction: I have a bottle opener on my key chain, but even if you don't have that, you can open them with most disposable lighters, with your keys, or on just about anything that has a sharp corner.


Corrected entry: The morning after they slept together, Ben has no memory of the event and is asking Alison whether or not they actually had sex. Yet eight weeks later when she tells him of the pregnancy, he is able to remember verbatim what she was saying right before they had sex, regarding the use of the condom.

Correction: Which is actually quite common after a heavy night of drinking.


Corrected entry: In the scene where Allison and Ben are shopping for baby books, they are choosing baby books but the rack is marked fiction.

Correction: So what, some people look at books then put them back in the wrong section.

Audio problem: When Ben and Jason are talking over the phone, after Jason tells Jonah, "Your mom is already there", we hear Jonah say, "Uncool man," but his lips are mouthing something different. (01:47:05)

Sadie: Where do babies come from?
Debbie: Where do you think they come from?
Sadie: Well. I think a stork, he umm, he drops it down and then, and then, a hole goes in your body and there's blood everywhere, coming out of your head and then you push your belly button and then your butt falls off and then you hold your butt and you have to dig and you find the little baby.
Debbie: That's exactly right.

More quotes from Knocked Up

Trivia: Ben's roommates (Jay, Johah, Jason and Martin) are all friends of director Judd Apatow and star Seth Rogan. And in fact, they are even using their real first names. Only Rogan (who portrays Ben Stone) used a fake name, and was the subject of many flub-ups, as the gang would frequently accidentally call him by his real name.
