Funny and Honest about 40s

First, let me just say that I just turned 40 and this movie is spot-on honest about the negative aspects of nearly being old. The family that's the focus of the film is referred to by one of the characters as being like a family in a bank commercial, which is to say that they're pictures perfect. The husband is played very well by Paul Rudd and the wife by the hot Leslie Mann. There are also 2 daughters that are always fighting, and the grandparents from both sides are either guilty of being absent from their lives or around and asking for money. As you might expect, sex is also up for discussion along with the purple pill. Anyway, the story move along nicely and the jokes are plentiful. I really enjoyed all the 40s jokes, but beyond that it's full of well-crafted scenes, many of which are hilarious.

Took a long time for the plot to develop...never felt like it really ever exposed itself. There are some ridiculously funny (and ridiculous) scenes in the movie, but felt like there was too much use of the F word, just for the sake of using the F word. All in all...I wish I would have spent the money to see something else. Definitely not for kids!

So unrealistic

The movie was awful. To be funny, one would need to identify with the situation of at least one of the characters. The movie was so disjointed and out of touch with reality that it was bizarre, not humorous.

I was disappointed. I expected more laughs. I felt like I was in the middle of another couples argument for 2 hours. Saving grace was Melissa McCarthy, she was a hilarious! If you go- stay for the out takes. I laughed harder here than the entire movie.

I really liked this movie, I wasn't expecting it to be 2 hours long but it was enjoyable all throughout. It was really funny and I think its a perfect date night movie, something the guy and the girl will definitely enjoy.
