Apatow is obsessed with bowel movements, urinating, throwing up and other low and cheap humor. Take away the "F"word and this trash movie can run for 25 minutes.Does Apatow have a promotion deal with a toilet seat mfr.?

some of the worst writing ever seen on screen

Amen. Absolutely horrible. And the acting wasn;t much better. Even the characters looked miserable while delivering their lines, as if they knew how bad it was.

well i can call bullcrap because this got my funny bone

Paul Rudd is the only one who has a couple of funny lines, but otherwise it's a horrible movie

I think you're all missing the point. Apatow is so disgustingly pretentious that he actually casted his real life spouse and his real life kids to play in this film. It's obviously a look into his home life and the fact is, we don't care. At a time in which our country's economy is truly in the toilet, we are expected to empathize with two whiny upper class adults who have more money than most of us will ever acrue over the course of a lifetime. And yes, there is the enormous run time. Sorry, Judd. I can't back you up on this one.

You're really right. But that's why I didn't pay to see it, I watched it at a friend's house.
The setting is really out of touch -- the cars they drive, where they live -- it's ridiculous. Instead of being a satire on upper class LA living, it actually takes itself seriously.

a little too long for a comedy

True, the movie could have used some tightening up; but I can't imagine where that tightening should have happened, cause I truly enjoyed every moment; and although my turning 40 was closer to The 40 Year Old Virgin, I related much more to this movie and wouldn't want to cut any of this family's trials, tribulations and daily dysfunction, or that of their friends, co-workers and extended family.

how many people can relate to this ridiculously lavish lifestyle? such horrendously selfish whiny characters - if this is an indication of upper middle class america - i am not surprised the nation is going down

Not as long as Les Mis which I saw yesterday.

Most of Apatow's movies are way too long. That's why FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL is my favorite: it's the shortest.

Apatow's films have always been too long: why does the editing on all his film suck so bad? This is my FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL is my favorite, because its the shortest.

Not only was it not-good for me, but fluffed up to that length, felt even worse.
