Song From the OST


  • Steve Carell’s then eighty-year-old parents went to see the film, much to his embarrassment.
  • When Catherine Keener was cast, Steve Carell told Judd Apatow that her casting had legitimized the film’s credibility.
  • The producers were planning to have a sequel by the name of “Knocked Up”, with almost the same cast. But in the end, they released Knocked Up (2007) as a separate movie not related to this one.
  • The “We Sell Your Stuff on eBay” store was a real store. It was written into the script after the location was chosen.
  • A lot of the movie was improvised while shooting.
