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.

Need to cool the F bomb and the C word! Otherwise I had a great time - and laughed all the way through it. Paul Rudd continues to be a highlight in all his films. Love the twinkle in his eyes! Leslie Mann gives a believable performance - she's having a breakdown over turning 40. Wish there had been more of Melissa McCarhty. What a great comedic talent. Don't see this if you have a problem with crude. Do go if you need a laugh. I got my money's worth.

When I saw the movie was over 2 hours I thought "Oh No", but the movie was funny, fast paced, you could identify with the different characters because we all have family and memories that were portrayed in the story. I would see it again and very seldom do I watch movies twice.

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.

This movie was worth watching at the theaters. Lots of good/funny actors in this movie, but def adult comedy. I laughed so hard , def worth seeing.
