This Is 40 – Review

A Judd Apatow movie that I actually liked.

This Is 40 claims to be a sort of sequel to Knocked Up. If it is a sequel it is definitely better than it predecessor.

The film follows husband an wife, Pete and Debbie (Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann) in the week that they both turn 40 (or 38 if you believe Debbie). They go through a lot of things you’d expect to happen over a few months rather than a week. Financial trouble, rebellious children, fights with each other, fights with parents at their children’s school (just one of the highlights in this film and a reason to stick around for the credits) and issues with their parents who both have second families.

Filled with heaps of pop-culture references including digs at John Goodman and J.J. Abrams, This Is 40 had me laughing for most of the film (and like I usually say, there is only one good rom-com a year… Shame this one was so early on).
