Sadly not as expected.

There were definitely some funny moments, and one of the best lines ever (about the difference in straight and gay mustaches), but way too much use of the f-word was a turn-off, among other things.

Train Wreak of a movie

Movie had a lot of potential, but its a huge miss. It is funny in a few places, but mostly its just sad and has no real ending, it just stops. Terrible writer.

It's exceptional if you relate and like a darker comedy

This is real life and quite refreshing to see it on the big screen. For those of us near 40 in marriages that struggle/include fighting, kids who are sucked into electronics and question their parents, but still try to find a happy life, this is for you. I hope main stream Hollywood does more of this: blend old school feel good 'American' flicks with not so sexy, sometimes unhappy real life for the rest of us. On a sour note, could have focused less attention on the sexy character... it was forced and unimportant except to lure men into the movie.

Horrible!

Was excited to see this movie with my girlfriends of the forty-something crowd and was highly disappointed! It had a few funny lines but I really wanted to walk-out. It was even hard to sit still and one girlfriend fell asleep. In my opinion, not even a DVD watching movie.

Paul Rudd & Leslie Mann were Great but the rest of the Cast includingMegan Fox were awful in This Is 40. I Laughed maybe 5 times; 2 hours and 15 minutes. The scene where Paul Rudd takes a pic of himself with his legs up was one of the only funny scenes for him other than 2 scenes in the beginning. Jason Segal isn't that funny like his Character (How I Met your mother, Forgetting Sarah Marshall). But I forgot he was in it and a Special Surprise Melissa McCarthy was in it She made me smile.
