Writer/director/producer Judd Apatow (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Funny People) brings audiences This Is 40, an original comedy that expands upon the story of Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) from the blockbuster hit Knocked Up as we see first-hand how they are dealing with their current state of life.
I wish that I could talk to Judd Apatow and tell him to stop putting the same people in all of his movies. They all are just bleeding together because there isn't much new "flavor" in his films. It seems like Leslie Mann only gets work when it's in Judd Apatow movies. She isn't a poor actress but it's time to stop depending on being in your husbands films and moving on with your career. This movie was pretty boring throughout most of it. It left me sitting there wondering why I was watching it. The previews looked like it would be alright but it was less than average. The youngest daughter in the film had zero acting talent. It's sad when you know that someone is the directors or a producers kid because they have no talent and yet they are still in the movie. In this case it was Judd Apatow's kid. Megan Fox is also in this movie. There is another person who has no talent. It's too bad how she keeps getting acting work just because of how she looks. There are actresses that have beauty and talent that are yet unknown, maybe those women should be put in a movie like this to make it a lot better! I would skip this one because it just wasn't that good! 4/10
