we laughed throughout the movie, we enjoyed it, a bit long so make plenty of time with all the previews and stuff, but overall, enjoyed the movie and all of the adult type jokes, not a movie to take your kids to

I laughed so hard at time I had tears running down my face. It is a great Married Couple movie. Make it a date night and you will be talking about it during the ride home.

I liked this couple from Knocked Up, so I was real happy to see this movie begin to be promoted a month or two ago.
The topper for me was seeing Chris O'Dowd (from The IT Crowd). I think that Apatow missed a huge one-liner opportunity with Chris since there was so much technology/computer-centric things in the film. There were quite a few instances where someone could have had a problem with a laptop/computer and Chris would have said "Have you tried turning it off and then on again?" and it would have had me rolling on the floor! Even if it were just part of the bloopers during the credits at the end.
In any case, there are enough really funny scenes that every couple who's been together awhile and in their 40's can relate to and giggle about.

As someone who loves a great comedy and a movie that is aimed right squarely at my demographic - middle age, young family - I thought this was awful. It wasn't funny - save for a few good lines - it was patronizing (enough Apple product envy, omg!), and the family, by and large just wasn't likable. Hence the reason why I thought the ending was implausible. I lterally felt like I wasted two long long long long hours watching this movie.

We have waited a month for this movie to come into theatres. Loved similar films - Knocked Up, etc. Unfortunately, little time spent on the humor of married life in your 40s and more time spent on their depressing and sometimes bizarre family scenarios (really a house THAT well decorated and they can't afford the house?).
Expected so much more...disappointed.
