This is 40 2012

This is 40      Pete and Debbie are a married couple with two daughters and they are the same couple in the movie Knocked Up also by Judd Apatow.  Debbie is having a birthday and she tells everyone she is 38.  Soon after Pete is having a birthday and he is turning 40, so both of them are really 40 but she is lying.  They are having a lot of financial problems, Pete’s music label business is not doing very well, someone is stealing from the boutique clothing store Debbie owns and they are over there heads in their house.  It isn’t helping that Pete’s father has young triplet boys and he is always asking for money. 
     There are so many scenes in this film that I have never seen before and I did not want to see either.  It has Judd Apatow written all over it, does he make any other kind of movie?  And, why does he have his older daughter swearing every time they talk?  This is wears you down and ages you with its constant yelling, fighting and arguing.  3* (This movie is OK)

134 min, Comedy directed by Judd Apatow with Leslie Mann, Paul Rudd, Maude Apatow, Iris Apatow, Jason Segel, Annie Mumolo, Robert Smiget, Megan Fox.

Note:  Blockbuster 3*, imdb 6.2 out of 10, 52% critic 52% audience on Rotten Tomatoes.
