Welcome to the house Apatow built – the comedic landscape forged by director/writer/producer Judd Apatow, who in a few short years went from a pop-culture reject (with two quickly-cancelled TV series and a flopped film to his name) to Hollywood’s most consistently successful – and well-received – purveyor of comedy. His reign of terror / laughter began in proper when he directed the smash hit The 40-Year-Old Virgin, then things got really busy in 2007 with the teen sex romp Superbad and Apatow’s second directorial job, Knocked Up. This year, things get complicated. Greg Mottola, who directed Superbad, launches his debut as a writer-director in Adventureland. Paul Rudd and Jason Segel, both Apatow familiars, costar in I Love You, Man. Neither movie has Apatow on board – is his golden touch really as important as it’s made out to be? Here to help us ponder this by looking at these two new films as well as touching on Superbad and Forgetting Sarah Marshall is recurring guest Derek Gladu. All this and more on this episode of Sound on Sight.
