    “This is 40” lands directly in the lap of middle-aged couples. It’s a film for them and about them, making it less accessible to the average ticket buyer, but also more memorable to the intended ticket buyer. In fact, it’s a setting so close to the director’s heart that each of the casted family members are Judd Apatow’s real-life family, substituting only Rudd for himself.

    This lends an authentic weight to each of the couple’s encounters, leaving one to wonder if the film’s more personal moments aren’t in fact, autobiographical.

    This movie is very very crude. Raunchy humor. If you are into that kind of movie then you will like this movie. There are some hilarious parts that had me laughing, but at the same time there are parts that take it too far. NOT a kid show. This is for a mature audience only. I probably would not have this in my collection in fear that my mother would ask what its about if she was to be looking through my DVD's.

    ... is uneven, long and sprawling, occasionally funny and biting. Give it plenty of points for brutal honesty... could have used more laughs—... The movie is not so much a cohesive story as a series of scenes, a collection of ideas that fall under the heading of an overarching theme: marriage in middle age... It's just too bad the movie's trajectory is formless and jokes built around petty marital resentments sometimes fall flat... Read full review here

    ...doesn’t shield us from the difficulties of sustaining a marriage, even while it makes us laugh, hard... honesty involved... Some of it is grounded in absurdity, some in real life; Rudd and Mann excel at finding the funny in both places... Read full review here

    This is 40 is essentially a window into the life of an upper middle-class American family over the course of a two-week period... It has a straight-from-the-heart feel that allows his numerous observations about family, marriage, aging to feel more honest than trite. Many viewers will relate to Pete and Debbie because they will see themselves in the characters... Read full review here

    The movie is overlong and saggy, swooping almost randomly from set-piece scene to set-piece scene, and yet it is all supposed to take place in about one week. This continually undercuts any sense of forward momentum... Read full review here

    It snuggles up next to you, breathes in your face, dribbles crumbs on your shirt and laughs at its own jokes. Such proximity makes it easy to notice flaws, and there are a lot of loose ends and a few forced conclusions. But, then again, the acceptance of imperfection is Mr. Apatow’s theme, so a degree of sloppiness is to be expected. That’s life... Read full review here

    ...less about a concept than a state of being... The whole tone of the movie is spontaneous, rolling, experiential. It's got some laugh-out-loud lines... This Is 40 isn't always hilarious, but it's ticklishly honest and droll about all the things being a parent can do to a relationship. And why it's still worth it... Read full review here
