Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: There are moments of perception and sweetness, as per usual with Apatow movies. It's just too bad the movie's trajectory is formless and jokes built around petty marital resentments sometimes fall flat.
Fresh: The film has as much to say about family dynamics as a couple's wavering love.
Fresh: With This Is 40, Apatow turns his audience into fitfully chuckling therapists, dealing with a raft of problems that aren't entirely sorted out.
Rotten: The real problem with "This Is 40" is its lack of truth, that Apatow wanted to express something about married life, and it eluded him.
What a stupid movie
This movie was way too long and slow and summarizes everything that's wrong with America: people living above their means, bratty kids, etc. Don't waste your time watching it at home. Just go to your local restaurant, gym, coffee shop, etc. It's all there...
AVOID AT ALL COSTS!
I never write reviews, but having suffered through this film last night, I felt compelled.
This movie should not even be mentioned in the same category as "Knocked Up", which was funny. "This is 40" is deeply depressing, slow, dim witted, and vulgar simply for the sake of being vulgar.
I wish I could have my $5.99 back along with the 2.5 hours of my life that was wasted on this trash.
Time to call it quits Apatow!
Crass, uninspired and disappointing
Turned 40 this year and hoped this movie would provide some comic relief. What a disappointment. The characters are unlike able, superficial, completely self-centered and sad. The movie is slow to go almost nowhere. If you think swearing and vulgarity hilarious, go for it. If you want a story with any real value or meaning, look elsewhere.
