It's a little silly, sometimes too pointed, and overly long, but at its heart are perceptive observations about the challenge of long-term relationships, raising a family, and turning 40 -- some of which will ring true for many of us.
This Is 40 (40 minutes too long, that is) is getting at something, but it doesn't get there by 40 miles-not more than 40 people outside L.A. will understand it. This is not a refinement of the frat-pack comedy as much as a tombstone for a subgenre.
