THIS IS 40

Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann,
Albert Brooks, Megan Fox
Jason Segel, John Lithgow



Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann are back in a full length movie where they reprise their roles as Pete and Debbie, the husband and wife (friends of Katherine Heigl) from the film "Knocked Up."   

Also directed by Judd Apatow, this film explores the travails of Pete and Debbie as they both turn 40 and go through a mid life crisis.   Struggling with debt, a teenaged daughter, aging parents and health woes, somehow their seemingly happy existence is slowing going down the drain, so to speak.

The cast led by Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann (Judd Apatow's wife in real life) delivered fine performances. Their comedic timing were up to par.  The plot itself was amusing and entertaining but certain scenes could have used some editing.

"This is 40" is a witty and well written comedy which presented real life situations that a couple their age face on a daily basis.  It had extremely funny moments. Scenes where I totally laughed out loud which was fun because it has been a while since I've done that watching a film.  

It also included some crude humor and dialogue for mature audiences but were treated appropriately and were not offensive nor insulting.  Well I wasn't offended but that's just me, I just laugh everything off!
