Judd Apatow Collection Stackup Graph

Judd Apatow writes, directs, and produces comedies with a lot of similar casts. But what role creates the best movies? Here we've compared two movies he wrote and produced (The 40 Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up) to two that he only produced and didn't write (Superbad and Forgetting Sarah Marshell). The difference is palpable: movies Apatow writes are by far the more favored.

Based on the results, Knocked Up is clearly the best compared to the other choices. You might want to consider buying it from Amazon.

Also, it looks like Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Superbad are a lot worse than average. At least there's some room for improvement.
