Hollywood pap threatens civilsation as we know it....again

I love it when paper pundits deign to really comtemplete contemporary cinema and near shite themselves when they have to face up to its themes:
Joe Queenan in todays Guardian on Knocked Up:

I think women need to start their own film industry: this one isn't working.
It is anybody's guess what the female protagonist gets out of the relationship with Seth Rogen in Knocked Up.

(does he think women haven't made films before?)

Where is all this leading? It's leading to a future so dark that women will look back on the decade that brought them The Runaway Bride, Notting Hill, My Best Friend's Wedding and My Big Fat Greek Wedding as a golden age.
I mean Knocked Up isn't as bad as Epic Movie or something, now really did threaten civilisation as we know it.

P.S. If you try google image searching for 'knocked up' without your results filtered, you'd see far worse things that posters for this film.
