This is 40 has its fair share of laughs and charming moments with Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann having considerable chemistry but its overlong runtime and occasional aimlessness result in the film lacking the touching poignancy that made Knocked Up great.
Although Ti40 isn't Apatow's worst film (looking at you, Funny People), it's the most damning example of him not being able to cut his films down. However, its painfully hilarious relatability is so persistence that its grating negativity and overreaching focus are easily overshadowed. Rudd and Mann are paired perfectly, as they navigate first-world problems without overblowing or trivializing them. A VERY good movie that is both almost great (with some editing) and almost terrible (without the relevance).
Judd Apatow is back in the directing chair and it's worth the wait, It's funny all the way through, It's not so much laugh out loud funny but it's smart and clever funny, Very well acted by all the cast, It was overlong but not in a bad way it kept me entertained all the way through, It's not as good as Knocked Up but it's still very good.
Great movie. While its plot doesn't flow quite as well or as breezily as its "predecessor", the themes are strong in the movie, the jokes are a little more hit than miss, and the performances are great, especially Rudd and Mann, as well as Man and Apatow's real daughters.
After years of marriage, Pete (Paul Rudd) lives in a house of all females: wife Debbie (Leslie Mann) and their two daughters, eight-year-old Charlotte (Iris Apatow) and 13-year-old Sadie (Maude Apatow). As he struggles to keep his record label afloat, he and Debbie must figure out how to forgive, forget and enjoy the rest of their lives... before they kill each other.
