In this film Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann)turn 40 and re-examine their lives. Debbie decides everyone must make changes while Pete hides the fact they are broke. It seems Pete invested his future in the resurgence of Graham Parker.

They are clearly a mixed couple as Pete likes classic rock while Debbie prefers Lady Gaga. They also have father issues, one is a stranger (John Lithgow) while the other needs a handout (Albert Brooks). Apatow also brings back his daughters Maude and Iris from "Knocked Up" to be Sadie and Charlotte again. I must say his daughters did a great job as a moody foul mouthed 11 year old and an 8 year old wise beyond her years who says to her sister, "You're no fun since your body got weird."

The humor is never really a side splitter such as when they are talking to each other as their counselor says they should talk to each other:

Paul: "When I apologize, that means you'll let it go and won't throw it back at me in the future?"
Debbie: "I don't do that and I will continue not to do that."

If you loved Apatow's other work, this one is in line with them: crudely humorous and pretentious masquerading as a meaningful statement on modern relationships.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, nudity (Leslie Mann). Megan Fox bra/panties and bikini. Maybe as a rental.

In case you are watching "Lost" for the first time, this film includes the spoiler ending.

I've watched and really enjoyed just about everything Judd Atapow has ever done.

From Freaks 'n' Geeks/Undeclared through to Superbad/Knocked Up/ 5 year Engagement/ Get Him to the Greek.

I'd hoped this would be his magnum opus and was looking forward to seeing it but it failed to live up to my expectations.

I love Paul Judd and Leslie Mann and their characters from Knocked Up were continued here. However, they were watered down versions of the originals. Far less interesting or amusing than the previous incarnations. In Knocked Up they had the Seth Rogen/ Katherine Heigl characters to bounce off and develop from but they had no similar counterparts here.

The film is too long, too clumsy and too crude. I never, ever thought I'd say this but there is far too much swearing and it's pointless, adding nothing to the movie. (This comes from someone who's a huge fan of The Thick Of It - where swearing is a true art form.)

The plot is (just) interesting enough to keep you going until the end and there's a decent cameo from John Lithgow but the laughs don't really come. I laughed out loud just once and sniggered a few times but that was it.

The outtake featured during the end credits is way funnier than anything in the previous 133 minutes - which sums it up really..........

A comedic tale of family life as husband and wife both turn 40 in the same week, dealing with the pressures of children, work and extended family. If you are around that age range then there is much to be recognised here!

This is 40 features a strong (if not a little incestous) cast and some very funny set-pieces.

The film would benefit from being 20-30 minutes shorter and, frustratingly, there are a lot of lose ends left dangling.

Whatever you do, don 't miss the hilarious mid-credits out-take.

'This Is 40 ' is a frank film about married life, bringing up children, dealing with difficult parents, and just plain getting older. Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann play a married couple, both with fathers who are more than troublesome. It is a film with humor, but often the humor is really forced. I saw the film on HBO, so didn't spend the fortune it takes nowadays to take the family to the movies.

The film takes us several places, downsizing and the economic crisis. Something, however, was missing. The storyline never reached out and took a hold of me. The couple's children are their own children, and the family had real chemistry, which is a very good thing!

As a 40 something married mum of two daughters I can completely appreciate this film. So funny and so true I laughed all the way through. Anyone married with children and who have hit 40 will find this film a scream. ENJOY!

I'm a big fan of Judd Apatow. But this quasi-sequel to "Knocked Up", following up on the Pete and Debbie characters
a few years later is a really frustrating movie. There are so many good moments, moments that are laugh out loud
funny, or touching and real, that you want to scream when it keeps sliding into over-cute, or pushing for laughs, or
cliché, or overly verbose, stopping to state literally what the audience has figured out long before.

I felt like Apatow's tendency to make comedies that last over 2 hours is starting to catch up with him. The film feels
needlessly padded. Every major storyline makes its point at least one more time than it needs to.

That said, this is still way better than most Hollywood films. There are a lot of strong performances and solid writing.
I appreciated how honest it is about how messy and hard life, marriage and families are. When it's good it's great. But
20 or 30 minutes shorter, with more focus and less falling into rim-shots, repeats and easy heart tugs and it could
have been a classic.
