Nick's Review of This is 40
This is 40(2012)
No shit this is not a film for people expecting Judd Apatow to have changed style overnight. "This Is 40" captures the writer-director in full, free flowing form. It also seriously addresses white people problems with characters drawn from conflict of interest. But don't get it wrong, there's a weight to "This is 40", and goddamn it, it's honest, painful, true, about something, and comes from somewhere. Age, like the movie -- and like it does to Pete and Debbie -- is a sense of life that does more to a body and mind than keep spitting both closer to the other side. If you take note of it every once in a while it can help you remember to come up for air.
