This is 40 is a no go

I was disappointed. I expected more laughs. I felt like I was in the middle of another couples argument for 2 hours. Saving grace was Melissa McCarthy, she was a hilarious! If you go- stay for the out takes. I laughed harder here than the entire movie.

Funny and Honest about 40s

First, let me just say that I just turned 40 and this movie is spot-on honest about the negative aspects of nearly being old. The family that's the focus of the film is referred to by one of the characters as being like a family in a bank commercial, which is to say that they're pictures perfect. The husband is played very well by Paul Rudd and the wife by the hot Leslie Mann. There are also 2 daughters that are always fighting, and the grandparents from both sides are either guilty of being absent from their lives or around and asking for money. As you might expect, sex is also up for discussion along with the purple pill. Anyway, the story move along nicely and the jokes are plentiful. I really enjoyed all the 40s jokes, but beyond that it's full of well-crafted scenes, many of which are hilarious.

Not the best......

We thought this movie was going to be a lot funnier than it was. This movie was drug out for way too long and could have been half the time and still had its few funny parts. We were disappointed that a scene in one of the commercials advertising the movie was not even in the movie and other scenes were so random that not sure why they were even part of the movie. Definately not for kids under 17. Seen it once and that was enough.

Took a long time for the plot to develop...never felt like it really ever exposed itself. There are some ridiculously funny (and ridiculous) scenes in the movie, but felt like there was too much use of the F word, just for the sake of using the F word. All in all...I wish I would have spent the money to see something else. Definitely not for kids!

Waste of Time

I was so looking forward to this movie. It had a great cast; some of my favorite actors. I went with 4 girlfriends and from the previews we thought it was going to be a light hearted comedy. Geez....about 3/4 of the way through, I started wondering to myself if there was even a plot. There was no "end" we were working towards, no conclusion or climax. When we left I found out all of my friends felt exactly the same way. It was like watching someone's day-to-day life....whatever. Not even sure this would be a good rental. It had a few funny parts but for the most part it was a complete waste of time. I'm sorry to say this too because like I said, I love Paul Ruud and Leslie Mann, as well as Albert Brooks. Oh well. Just money and time down the drain...
