This Is 40 – 6.5/10

This isn’t Sparta. This… Is… 40!


Sequel of sorts to Knocked Up focusing on Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) a few years on.
There is literally no plot to This Is 40, ‘couple argue’ is pretty much it. There are some great one liners though and if you share my undying love for Paul Rudd there is a lot to enjoy.
One downside is that Director Judd Apatow amazingly still hasn’t learned that comedies should definitely not be over two hours long. A mistake he keeps making over and over again. Apatow is still probably the best Hollywood comedy director right now though in the absence of Kevin Smith and with the Coen Brothers work becoming more dramatic. A genuinely funny if forgettable movie.
