Frequently Bought Together
From the director of Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin, comes an unfiltered, comedic look inside family life. After years of marriage, Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) are approaching a milestone meltdown. As they try to balance romance, careers, parents and children in their own hilarious ways, they must also figure out how to enjoy the rest of their lives. Featuring Melissa McCarthy, Jason Segal, Megan Fox, John Lithgow and Albert Brooks, This is 40 is a candid and heart-warming comedy about the challenges and rewards of marriage and parenthood in the modern age.
Director Judd Apatow gets the Zeitgeist just right in the low-key but truly funny comedy This Is 40. This Is 40 is billed as a "sort-of sequel" to Knocked Up and Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann star in both as a happily married couple. In This Is 40, both Pete (Rudd) and Debbie (Mann) turn 40, which sets off a small but irreversible midlife crisis for both. Luckily, the two have a pretty privileged and happy life. It's as though they don't even truly know how to have a midlife crisis, yet it's somehow expected. There are a lot of genuine laughs in This Is 40, many bordering on bad taste--but still hilarious. Pete's struggle with hemorrhoids is one of those movie jokes you know you shouldn't laugh at, but you do. The answer to the question "Will Pete and Debbie and their family still be cool as they get older?" is probably never at issue, but watching the two actors, who have tremendous chemistry, bounce off each other during their birthday week really is funny. Adding to the merriment is the stellar supporting cast, including Megan Fox, Graham Parker (yes, the rocker), Lena Dunham (Girls), Melissa McCarthy, Chris O'Dowd, and Albert Brooks, who truly elevate This Is 40 to a genius ensemble experience.

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.
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..........
Don't stop the film when the credits roll, if you do you will miss one of the best rants ever!
In summary if your partner puts in on the T.V. you wont want to kill yourself,(I can easly watch chick flicks and rom-coms so its not that) But don't pay any real amounts of money for this one.
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.
