Romantic comedy
Writer-director Judd Apatow spins off Knocked Up with the further family adventures of Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann). The two characters prove worthy of their own movie thanks to the appeal of Rudd and Mann, who make a great screen couple. Debbie is not interested in turning 40 on her 40th birthday, and Pete wants to eat cupcakes without persecution while trying to get his independent album label up and running. Apatow pits the two against each other, and great comedic arguing ensues. Rudd is always a pleasure, while Mann continues to show she’s one of Hollywood’s funniest actresses. The supporting cast includes Melissa McCarthy (who steals the movie in her few scenes, including a hilarious closing credit outtake), Jason Segel, Albert Brooks and John Lithgow. They are all in top form.

Colorado Springs Independent Messy midlife: This Is 40 This Is 40 once again shows that Apatow's a genius at coming up with funny stuff for funny people to do, and pretty clueless when it comes to wrangling that stuff into a manageable form. by Scott Renshaw 12/19/2012

East Bay Express This Is 40 No, this is forgettable. by Kelly Vance 12/19/2012
Indy Week Aging grossly in This Is 40 There are hundreds upon hundreds of Apatow-style jokes in this thing: about colonoscopies and mammograms and gynecology tools, about escorts and Oxycontin addicts and French-kissing babies. I laughed a lot, even when I didn't want to. by Glenn McDonald 12/19/2012
Charleston City Paper Judd Apatow's This Is 40 finds plenty of comedy, but needs to find an editor I have a dream that, one of these days, Judd Apatow is going to make a 100-minute comedy so tightly packed with great material that you're not going to be able to breathe from the laughing. It will absolutely freaking kill. by Scott Renshaw 12/19/2012
