Terrible movie
Verified purchase
This is a terrible movie. It is not funny. It is about horrible people, who don't learn their lesson. They are all still horrible at the end. The best scene is in the preview. Watch where Melissa McCarthy is in the principal's office. That's basically as funny as it gets, and she's not a main character, being in only 2 scenes. It should've been called "this is 40 minutes too long" because it dragged so much my wife and I were wondering if it was a 3 hr movie. Don't waste you money, go buy/rent something better.

I really dig this movie a lot because Apatows films seem to have both substance in the story as well with equally matched humor & wit. The off- hand sequel to Knocked Up,I'm in the sense it follows Deb & Pete as their family has grown and they're both turning 40. It shows the way 40 effects everyone,as the children age and they have different careers. It shows how life works and how fun it can be if you really look at it & have fun with it,yes there are struggles,real life struggles and real issues that alotta families go thru...such as careers slowing down,life choices,finances,raising 2 daughters (1 who's now a teen & the other is like 7,And they don't get along) This movie is just,real. I don't know how else to put it.The sarcasm is there and the humor dissent let up for a minute. This is a film that I think hit it's mark,with an all star cast of Leslie Mann,Paul Rudd,John Lithgow,Megan Fox,Albert Brooks,Jason Segal,amongst others. Let me tell you this,if you are 40 or are older,or kissing the edge of 40 then you can probably relate to it and appreciate the humor and wit,I myself am 26 but man that does not change the fact that I love it,not should it. With age comes experience,so I'm sure alotta people either get it or they dont,same thing comes to wether it's appreciated or not. I personally appreciate it. Don't be hesitant,if you know and like Judd Apatows work then please give this a shot & enjoy it.

I remembered it being funny...
Verified purchase
The laughter I associated with this movie of course was from the real life version of this incredibly toxic couple. While I love the cast in pretty much every other movie I have ever seen them and am a big fan of the director, I feel like this movie spends a lot of time providing an excuse for some of the most toxic and disgusting behaviors. While Pete and Debbie leave destruction in their path (physically threatening a child and calling his mother a whole slew of profanities, then immediately gaslighting her) they end the film on a "we were never the problem" happy ending suggesting that everything is going to be alright. The sad reality as a child raised by parents much like these (except poor) is that they won't just change because of a medical emergency or an extra child. It is just another life they will leave in ruins due to their out of touch parenting. And this isn't even getting into the overly self indulgent run time or the lack of any real story as none of the issues brought up through the film ever reach a resolution. I think Judd had an idea to show a dysfunctional family, succeeded by too great a degree, and forgot that he was supposed to be directing a film.

I laughed a LOT during this movie...
*spoiler alert ish*
In this is 40 The cast went so well together you felt as though it was a real family. There was an equal amount of laughs, bad parenting, good parenting, "why is this happenings?" and "Paul Rudd is perfect" moments through out the film. The focus was strictly on Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann in this prequel it was not tied into Knock- up. Apatow focused on the 2 characters in knocked who had been there done that and are so unstable they are stable. This film was not suppose to be a slap silly comedy, yet a funny insightful good film that makes though who can relate lighten up and those of us who aren't 40.

I didn't think I was going to love it as much as I did, but I would watch this another 8 or 9 times before I was bored of it, just not back to back of course. Also, this made me want to watch Knocked Up again...

Grand Serio-Comic performance by Leslie Mann
Verified purchase
Upon first watching I was unsure if I really liked this movie, or not. Yet when it was shown again and again on cable, I was always drawn to watch it, and usually would while reading a book, or something. It became clear to me that Leslie Mann delivers here a tour-de-force comedic performance, mixing with seriosity. She veritably lights up the film whenever she appears. (...) There is no definite plot here, but it was purposely designed this way: to give a glimpse of a reasonably well off couple who are both approaching 40 in our modern world of computers, Iphones, Ipads, Itunes, and etc. Disarming, heartfelt, crude, but always shockingly funny in an off beat almost ironic manner, this film may come to be realized as a modern masterwork of comedy, by Judd Apetow. I recommend the regular, as opposed to the unrated, version, for, though the story line is developed better in the unrated, more amusing vignettes are present in the regular screening.

Foul language
Verified purchase
I love movies where I actually love one or two of the characters. I don’t know if I’m just getting old, but movies where everybody is calling each other foul names and constant cursing just makes me not like any of them. Society seems to have lost at least any a tiny level of a moral compass. I’m very open minded and liberal, but I just want at least a tiny bit of standards to come back. I won’t watch this movie again, though I really do like the actors that are in the movie.

Funny as heck
Verified purchase
The funniest, true to life comedy I’ve seen in a long time. This movies highlights most of the issues that cause that mid-life crisis panic. Bottoms line is when faced with aging as a couple always communicate honestly, live for who you are today not yesterday, create healthy rules for your kids from the get go and not spring rules on them suddenly because you wake up one day and think you need to do something drastic because you’re a crappy parent in your eyes. Always be honest about your finances and have both spouses involved. And most of all...laugh

Apatow does it agian with mid-life crises
Verified purchase
This Is 40 was Judd Apatow’s spinoff of Knocked Up. Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann and their two daughters Maude and Iris Apatow returned from that movie to deal with middle age. This involves all kinds of issues from sex to insecurities to medical exams to parenthood to more. There are plenty of funny scenes plus some of the other cast members from Knocked Up return in different roles such as Jason Segel. Albert Brooks as Rudd’s father also has some strong moments. The message is despite going through mid life crises the two still love each other. It’s another quality movie by Apatow.
