This movie was a huge disappointment. Knowing what I know now about this movie I wouldn't even waste a $1.00 renting it from Redbox when it comes out on dvd. I wanted to walk out about 30 minutes in, but for some reason stayed thinking it may just get better. While it had a few funny moments those were few and far between. Besides the fact that it is not funny, the script and plot go nowhere. This Is 40 is not up to the standards you would expect from Apatow, so do yourself favor, save your money.

Not funny. Walked out after what seemed an eternity. I can't believe intelligent? people with money sat down and created this disaster. Hollywood steals money at the box office. What kind pf parents put their children in a movie like this, it was the worst miserable mess.

Just watch the trailer and save your time and money rather than wasting it to see if this foul, extremely dysfunctional family will ever figure it out. It just goes on and on and gets worse and worse.

My boyfriend and I were so disappointed with this movie we decided to write a review; we don't normally blog or write reviews, but we hope to save someone the disappointment we have after losing 2.5 hrs of a Saturday afternoon together seeing this UNFUNNY flick. We were hoping for light-hearted comedy like the preview shows; however, instead we got kids screaming at one another and swearing, adults yelling at one another, parents yelling at kids, kids yelling at parents...it was a nightmare that never got better. I envy those who walked out and saved part of their day; wish we'd have done the same. If you're looking for a depressing flick w/out a plot or any semblance of morale theme with a few "forced" comedic moments (that you've already seen on the preview), then this won't disappoint. Unfortunately, we weren't looking for it, but found it. Sad. Disappointing. We left feeling awkward and frustrated from the lack of any sort of closure or understanding behind the flick's intent.

I love this movie very funny. I think this is more for people that are in their late 30's early 40's. need to pay attention to what they say lots of funny lines.
