REVIEW: Apatow Grows Up, Takes A Step Back With Messy 'This Is 40'

movieline
5 April 2013
  • Excerpt: This is 40 ends with a title card saying that it's "Based on characters created by Judd Apatow ." While this is true — the film's about Debbie ( Leslie Mann ) and Pete ( Paul Rudd ), who were supporting figures in Apatow's 2007 hit Knocked Up — it also feels like it might be more accurate for it to...

  • Excerpt: The Film Five years after Judd Apatow struck cinematic gold with Knocked Up , the director is revisting some of the film's characters. However, This Is 40 doesn't check in with its predecessor's main focus to see how parenthood is treating the odd on-screen couple.

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: 'This Is 40' may be far from 2012's best comedy, but many aspects of it ring hysterically and brutally true.

This Is 40 (2012)

14 March 2013
  • Conclusion: This Is 40 is a mashup of a classic perils-of-family-life comedy you'd expect from a seasoned director -- bitingly funny yet frighteningly familiar -- and the kind of uneven, over-indulgent comedy struggling first-time indie filmmakers try to crank out before cutting their teeth.

The Digital Fix
23 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Judd Apatow�s latest comedy drama, spun off from his 2007 hit Knocked Up , is a long and extremely bumpy ride across the well-worn turf of the mid-life crisis.

  • Excerpt: This is 40 actually reflects the conflicts and joys of ringing in the birthday in question if your name happens to be Judd Apatow. For the rest of us, it’s a passable comedy plagued by the usual Apatow potholes.

AV Club
20 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Ever since Judd Apatow made his debut as a writer-director in 2005 with The 40-Year-Old Virgin , the knock against his films has been that their more inspired moments are undercut by the overall bloat.
