Hey, everyone. ”Moriarty” here.
I dig what Adam McKay and Will Ferrell are trying to do with their website Funny Or Die. I know they made a big splash with the Pearl videos, “The Landlord” and “Good Cop Baby Cop,” which you can see here:
But they also provide a place for people to post their own videos that other people can rank, and they provide a place where folks like Judd Apatow can post outtakes and deleted footage. You remember that blisteringly dirty BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN riff by Jonah Hill that we ran a week or two ago? Well, that’s just one of the many deleted moments from KNOCKED UP, and today, they posted another one, a much longer version of a scene that’s in the movie.
One of the strangest arguments I’ve heard against KNOCKED UP is that the film is pro-life propaganda, and that they completely left any discussion of abortion out of the movie. That’s not true even in the final cut, where there are at least three scenes that make some sort of reference to the idea of wrestling with the choice, but in this extended sequence, you’ll see just how profound that conversation gets when Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, and Jason Segel are involved. And of course, this is not safe for work. Not remotely.
