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!

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.

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..........

This film is very funny, certainly if your 40 ish. Great comedy writing, Rudd and Mann are perfectly cast.

Don't stop the film when the credits roll, if you do you will miss one of the best rants ever!

watchable, And a few funny parts (that they ruined by showing them on the T.V. adds) but they where pretty much all the good parts so mostly this was one of those movies you stare at then think "really this is a movie?" It was just like watching someones life .... some around 40 obviously lol but not exactly a riveting watch, But not unbareable either.

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.

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.

it is funny only about what you see in the triler the rest of the movie is just obvious and also a bit discriminating. it says don't wish for the better just succumb about life , it is realistic for people that are sad!
