Seth Rogen tied the knot this weekend with longtime love Lauren Miller.

Funnyman Seth Rogen, the comedy idol of modern stoner cinema fans everywhere, took some time off from joking around to engage in a serious legal matter Sunday -- marriage. Rogen tied the knot with longtime girlfriend Lauren Miller, who is a writer. The ceremony was said to be a funny one , which is unsurprising considering many of the notable names on the guest list, including Adam Sandler, Jonah Hill and the mastermind behind most of Rogen's top films, Judd Apatow. Rogen and Miller had been dating since 2006 and selected Sonoma, California as the site of their nuptials.

Rogen's marriage caps off a week of comedy leading men getting serious -- Mike Myers and wife Kelly Tisdale brought a bundle of joy into the world Thursday. As the Joker would ask, "Why so serious?" Is it the fall weather cooling off the comedic jets of these leading men? Whether or not that's the case, we figured it was time to re-imagine some of Seth Rogen's films to adhere to his new role as family man.

"Knocked Up": Rogen stars as Ben Stone, who meets Katherine Heigl's Alison Scott at a smoothie bar. The two overindulge in some antioxidant-rich beverages and end up having to go home together to ease their swelling stomachs. The two connect in a heart-to-heart conversation over some Pepto Bismol and find true love.

"Pineapple Express": Here, Rogen is process server clerk Dale Denton, who has an unfortunate affinity for smoking...tobacco. Yes, tobacco. Down-on-his-luck Denton unwittingly purchases a carton of cigars that snuck in on an unlicensed cargo ship from Cuba. Denton hastily dumps the Cubans in fear of violating US laws, only to realize that his fingerprints are all over the box and his driver's license slipped into the box after he opened it for inspection. Denton chases the box of Cubans across the state to prevent transmission across state lines and federal crime.

"Zack and Miri Make a Porno": Barista Zack (Rogen) and longtime buddy Miri (Elizabeth Banks) face economic woes and possible eviction. Without the ability to earn enough overtime at their respective jobs, the two elect to take on a formidable creative task to pay the rent: write a highly successful series of children's books. Can they create sufficient characterization and an engaging enough plot to satisfy parents and children without any elementary educational background or creative writing experience? Find out in this kid-friendly comedy of creative struggle.
