Knocked Up–More Possible Lawsuits?


Suing Judd Apatow and Universal has become a cottage industry since Rebecca Eckler made a plucky Canadian stand against mammoth American corporate greed.

Melissa Summers at Suburban Bliss weighs her options.

Patricia Pearson, who wrote Playing House, finds way too many similarities between her book and Knocked Up.

PH: an amiable, underemployed, pot-smoking expatriate Canadian living in the U.S. knocks up an ambitious magazine editor, just as her star is rising. She realizes that she is pregnant after abruptly vomiting in public.

KU: ambitious journalist on the rise has sex with an amiable, underemployed, pot-smoking expatriate Canadian living in the U.S.; realizes she is pregnant when she vomits in public.

Nine Gram Brain jumps on board when she realizes that the movie’s Alison stole her line:”Is my ass fat?”

PhD candidate Mary sums it up as a publicity ploy.

A Toronto blogger thinks Rebecca Eckler rocks.

Weirdly, Ecklers’s lawyer, Gary Gorham, works for a firm where no one has a head. (Despite the South Bundy address, the office isn’t close to Nicole Simpson’s condo.)
