This is Forty

More Judd Apatow humor in this sequel to Knocked Up that takes the story of Pete and Debbie on to age 40, when all the issues of middle age, marriage, sex and children provide plenty of material for humor. If you like Apatow humor, This is Forty will be enjoyable, but it holds few surprises. Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann are on firm ground, and work well with Apatow’s mix of bawdy humor rooted in the real issues of long term intimacy, and though the film is rather shapeless, there is a vital energy and appreciation of the absurd ups and downs of life. That said, if you are not into the humor of the less hygienic of bodily functions, This is Forty could be off putting.
