Judd Apatow definitely delivers funny and perceptive scenes in This is 40, even if they are buried in aimless self-indulgence.

Audience Reviews for This is 40


Light-hearted parenting sitcom that is entertaining enough albeit cheesy in an American way.

I found 'This Is 40' to be a funnier and far more enjoyable film than I had originally expected. One of the film's major highlights are the hysterical and smart performances of Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd as they make a lovely couple who both give plenty of great laughs; whether they're interacting with each other or with other supporting characters. Even Maude and Iris Apatow as the couple's children give those rare yet decent laughs. Ultimately, it's the situations the family are placed in that allow the audience to connect with Paul Rudd and/or Leslie Mann; whether its handling kids, dealing with finance issues, or just general arguments about their marriage. While the film is over 2 hours long, I personally only felt maybe one or two scenes were slightly dragged, but I still enjoyed every moment regardless. Judd Apatow has directed a bundle of films that I've majorly enjoyed, particularly 'The 40 Year Old Virgin'. In this case, 'This Is 40' is one of my most favored comedies to come out in recent years.

While the movie won't/didn't win awards, it was really fun to watch. There were many funny, raunchy moments, but it also had a lot of heart. I felt like it was really relatable, and true to life in many ways. Paul Rudd was adorable. Melissa McCarthy really added some quirky fun!
