What sad is that this movie is my marriage. The F word was very much used which I would prefer that it wasnt. This is not a movie for children AT ALL, its more geared for married adults.

I really like the actors in this movie but the premise misses the mark. And what makes the director think that bathroom humor appeals to an adult audience?I have a 2nd grade grandson, a 1st grade grandson and a 4 yr old grandson who think that bathroom humor is hilarious. Fortunately they will outgrow it, why hasn't the director and the actors done the same. Here is an idea, play up to an audience not down to an audience.

This film surprised me a great deal. I expected it to be funnybut it was even funnier than I expected (and make sure you wait thru the credits to laugh even more). The stroy is very simple about a couple experiencing the effects of aging a bit as they turn 40. What I was amazed at is how poignant the film is and how it weaves a few different plot lines thru it. The stars of the film do very well. The costars are great, too, in particular John Lithgow and Albert Brooks. They bring solid, good character acting with them while also being poignant and very effective at being 2 men who are going thru a lot, and their regret is deep in each case and it manifests itself in every moment in subtle ways. So this is a really fine film that is as hilarious as it is deeply felt and acted, while never falling to sentimentalism. The laughs are many and deep and so are te tears. The young actors who are real family memebers of Judd Apatow are brilliantly real and effective. Go enjoy and be touched!

Went to see the movie "This Is 40" Some Pervasive Language, Crude Humor, Sexual Content and Some Drug Filled Cookies.... LoL... Not Something to take the kids to go see when you haven't had the talk about the birds and the bees... This was a very good adult comedy about becoming an old fart and dealing with reality... Oh, Wait I fit that category.... Well worth the trip to the theater for this one my friends...
