I just wrote a review for This Is 40
“Looks like Judd Apatow turned his own earlier work into an ingredient for a Hollywood studio formula. Still, even in the first 10 minutes that I tolerated, there was good stuff, all of it coming out of the two kids’ mouths. May have been a better idea to have made the movie about them or from their POV. Sadly, the movie is about their parents. No amount of scatological, sexual or dark humor could’ve made these parents interesting. Better instead to re-watch “Knocked Up” and not risk diminishing it by watching this supposed sequel.”
Writer/director/producer Judd Apatow (“The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” “Funny People”) brings audiences “This Is 40,” an original comedy that expands upon the story of Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) from the blockbuster hit “Knocked Up” as we see first-hand how they are dealing with their current state of life.
