This is 40 is a great movie, it offers a multi scene, multi approach to the issues facing life at 40. While it was marketed as the sequel to the move "Knocked Up" there seems to be no real connection other than the cast.
Over all the move was great and offered rich emotional and comedic insight into the challenges of aging.

It was a very funny movie to go to, very vulgar and a lot of crude humor. If you're fine with this, than it's a must go to movie! laughed my head off!

This movie was a real bummer. I can't believe I paid $10 to see a movie based on mine and my friends' lives. If I wanted that, I wouldn't bother going to the movies. Yes, I get it, it is based on real people with real problems and I'm sure there are people out there dealing with these types of issues, but these characters and their whining and complaining and putting each other down was too much to endure for 2 plus hours. The kids' characters were funnier than the adults. Seeing kids like that in a realistic light was refreshing because 13 year olds are obnoxious and 8 year olds are innocent and sweet. But these adults with their ranting and raving just got old and tiresome. Albert Brooks was funny but even his character got old after awhile. There were some funny moments where I chuckled out loud, but they were too few to sway me into liking this film. Sorry Apatow, Freaks and Geeks was your shining achievement.

There were very few funny parts in this movie. For the most part it was just a couple fighting non stop. If I want to see that I can watch my neighbors for free

This movie was absolutely hilarious. It takes a lot to make me laugh out loud during a movie and with this....I was dying. Tears in my eyes. So many great one liners and many that I'm sure I missed from laughing so hard. I'll have to see it again. If you're 'around that age' and have kids that age......see it. The cast was great! Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd are hilarious and so are the children in the film - Leslie's children in real life. Al Brooks is great too.
Not understanding the 'vanilla' reviews from some - lighten up people! Not every family is the Cleavers - for goodness sake. Welcome to dysfunctional family 2012. LOVED IT.
