Apatow does his thing again! He makes a comedy out of an introspective story about real people. If you are married and in your 40s, or even close to it, you will probably get more of a snapshot of your life than laughs. It was funny at times, but not drop dead funny. Melissa McCarthy was hilarious as always though. The good part was that Rudd and Mann give believable performances as the married couple from KNOCKED-UP that are still trying to figure themselves out in this phase of life - with kids, mortgages, careers and sex. The problems they had were things an audience could connect to.They could have cut 10 minutes off the film to move it along quicker though. Still, I enjoyed the ups and downs, and the reconciliations the characters had to go through. It may not hit the funny bone like you thought walking in, but it will make you feel something walking out. Don't miss the outtakes. Geek Soul Brother gives this film 3 out of 5 Cosmic Afros.

If you are in your 40s or approaching 40s or remember your 40s this is a must see. If you think 40 sounds old don't bother trying to get it, you wont! My husband and I laughed until our sides ached.

Great job directing and acting in this movie. Laughed from the start to end of the movie. My wife and daughter also enjoyed this movie as much as I did. By the reactions around us in the theater this movie is a hit.

Bad

This movie lacks any artistic value. It didn't do anything but make me almost walk out. I will not refer this movie to anyone. Lacks decency and heart about anything that happens at 40. Looked to be a typical stereotypical dysfunctional family in California that lacks direction and proper upbringing. The cursing is absolutely out of bounds, this is not the military, but you would have thought that everyone had been there!!!

AS THE PARENT OF TWO DAUGHTERS, WHO ARE NOW GROWN WITH CHILDREN OF THEIR OWN ON THE WAY, I FOUND THIS MOVIE TO BE PERFECT. THE WRITING WAS SPOT ON. IT WAS A BIT LONG, BUT I WILL GO AGAIN. ALSO, IT WAS CERTAINLY NOT FOR CHILDREN, AT LEAST UNDER 14. BOTTOM LINE I HAVEN'T LAUGHED THAT HARD AT A MOVIE IN YEARS.
