Performers, Cast and Crew:
Hollywood Reporter - 11/30/2012
"[T]here are more than enough bawdy laughs and truthful emotional moments to put this over as a mainstream audience pleaser..."
Los Angeles Times - 12/20/2012
"[N]ot since Apatow so thoroughly crashed (and trashed) the romantic comedy scene in 2005 with the foul-mouthed charm of THE 40-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN has Apatow gotten relationships this right."
New York Times - 12/20/2012
"It snuggles up next to you, breathes in your face, dribbles crumbs on your shirt and laughs at its own jokes."
Movieline - 12/17/2012
"It's Apatow's most personal film yet, even more so than FUNNY PEOPLE..."
A.V. Club - 12/20/2012
"[The movie] captures the rhythms and concerns of real life in ways that slicker Hollywood comedies don't."
Total Film - 03/01/2013
4 stars out of 5 -- "[Apatow's] nimble comic brain lands an array of bullseye moments that will resonate with anyone who's entered the messy vortex of modern-day relationships."
Judd Apatow's THIS IS 40 stars Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann star as Pete and Debbie, the same married couple they played in Apatow's KNOCKED UP. As the movie opens, Debbie is turning 40 but tells everybody she's younger. She runs a small, boutique clothing store that's breaking even financially, while Pete manages a retro-minded indie-music label that's under serious financial strain just as they are trying to launch a new album by Graham Parker. Their money troubles are compounded by Pete's dad Larry (Albert Brooks), who continually hits up his son for cash because he has toddler triplets after an overly successful fertilization treatment with his younger second wife. Debbie has daddy issues as well. Her father (John Lithgow), an emotionally cold, highly successful surgeon, seems to want no part of his daughter's life, even though they meet for lunch occasionally after not talking to each other for a lengthy period of time. All of these people, along with Debbie's trainer, Pete's employees, and salesgirls from Debbie's boutique, arrive at the couple's beautiful home for a birthday party where all the familial wounds are opened.
