KJ's Review of This is 40
This is 40(2012)
This film is a complete circle, going from comedy to drama almost constantly, never really finding a midpoint to settle upon. Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd have great chemistry together and I think that is probably the best part of the film. "This is 40" follows characters from the film "Knocked Up" as they reach the age of 40 and get through life's obstacles. It is a sweet story, but poorly written and very cliched. I'm not saying I didn't like the movie, but I would never recommend it. It's actually pretty depressing. This is not a comedy, it's a drama with real-life situations that become funny. Judd Apatow tried a little too hard this time around, and it didn't really pay off.
