Judd Apatow’s This Is 40 follows Knocked Up‘s scene-stealing characters Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) into middle age. It’s a clear — almost literal — step back from Funny People, which felt to me like two movies smooshed together, only one of which was really good. A little self-indulgent, a little too long… but still very funny and full of wonderful characters.
This Is 40 also stars Megan Fox, John Lithgow, Iris Apatow, Maude Apatow, Melissa McCarthy, Robert Smigel, Charlene Yi and Albert Brooks. (And Jason Segel is obviously in it, as well, though probably not a whole lot. Katherine Heigl? Definitely not in it.)
Fellow Apatow fans, see you in the theater on December 21st.
