Not Forgetting Jason Segel

Saw Knocked Up on HBO for a 2nd time the other day, and was reminded why Jason Segel is now one of the funniest comic actors working today. Nearly every single line he says in Knocked Up makes me laugh out loud. “Tell your sister I said hi. I’m gonna go buy a protein shake.” On paper, kinda funny, but his deliveries in this movie are some of the most consistent and best in a long time. Reminds me of how funny Ryan Reynolds can be in movies. Also, Paul Rudd never disappoints — talk about taking a few lines and making every single one of them hilarious. Watch Knocked Up again if for no other reason than to watch Jason Segel and Paul Rudd. On par with the guy who played Sack in Wedding Crashers. Laugh out loud funny.
