Product Description

From the director of Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin comes an unfiltered, comedic look inside the life of an American family. 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 Segel, Megan Fox, John Lithgow and Albert Brooks, This is 40 is a candid and heartwarming comedy about the challenges and rewards of marriage and parenthood in the modern age.

Amazon.com

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.

    I once asked a friend if a coworker had gone to vacations with his wife to which he laughed and replied

    "Barry, no he is the smartest man in the room, he never married. I been married 35 years and I could have killed my wife 5 times already"

    At the moment I laughed but this joke resonated while watching this film specially now that I'm a married man myself.

    "This is 40" follows Pete and Debbie (Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann) relationship as Pete's record label is on the verge of bankruptcy and Debbie's coming to the realization she is turning 40. There is the needy father (Albert Brooks) who still borrowing money from Pete to Debbie's disapproval and there is Debbie's father (John Lithgow) who after a long time is finally reentering her life.

    Having children, mortgage payments, dual careers, there is enough in "This is 40" that its relatable to the average family and where many comedies would have taken the light route and either show only one side or just the comedic side of things; "This is 40" just explodes in your face. Everything that you would normally tell somebody when you are mad its said and then some more. People bickering, fighting and rudely screaming at each other.

    And that's where this movie triumphs in its uniqueness and sincerity in its approach but that's also where it fails because people expecting a comedy alas "40 years old Virgin" (and that's the majority) end up disappointed.

    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.

    When I first saw the previews of This Is 40, I immediately added the film to my "must watch" list. I absolutely loved Knocked Up, and am a big fan of many of Judd Apatow's other films (Forgetting Sarah Marshall and I Love You Man are among my most favorite comedies). As it is for some other fans of Apatow's work, what is most enthralling for me is the real emotion behind the farce, the grain of truth in the jokes that make them relatable and personal. However it's a fine line with this genre of comedy and here Apatow steps too far over it from funny and touching into cringe-worthy territory.

    I would describe the experience of watching this movie as stressful or nervewracking. Most of the film is about watching people fight with each other over daily problems. What struck me again and again was how excessively avoidable these problems really were. I wanted to grab these two characters and force them to make a budget. That would solve 50% of the problems that come up in the movie. The other 50%? Perhaps these people really don't belong together. Hard to say, written as they are to conflict. The whole thing is so staged, so forced, it ended up feeling like a bad sitcom that just went on and on. The film also had trouble reaching a resolution. The characters kept moving apart and coming together again and again, making up and fighting and making up and...well you get it. Like I said, stressful. Not a good way to spend several hours of your life.

    If you are new to Apatow, I'd say start somewhere else, anywhere else. If you've seen all his other stuff, there are a few laughs to be had here if you have a high tolerance for trainwreck humor. However, I don't.

    This is by far the most painfully funny of all of Judd Apatow's films, it's also clearly his most personal. Apatow has done for being 40 what he did with the High school Experience (see: Freaks and Geeks), he's amplified the reality of the experience to show the absurdity of it all. Paul Rudd is excellent at playing a version of Apatow, here a record producer vs a filmmaker, but the themes are the same. Apatow cast his real life wife (Leslie Mann) as the female lead, a brilliant but risky move, that really pays off. His kids are the kids in the film and they both can really act.

    This may be a "You have to be 40 or experienced being 40 to enjoy it" kind of film, but it's hard to think of a more painfully funny and naked look at entering middle age.
