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.

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.

Side Splitting Funny

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.

I signed up for this just so that I could state my opinion of this movie. Terrible, not funny, in my opinion unecessarily vulgar! Walked out in the middle of it. I'm not that far past 40, and I have probably only walked out of one or two other movies in my life!

Fabulous movie if you're in this lifestage

Very hilarious and a bonding marital movie for my hubby and me. The take away for us was that we were not so different than others in our lifestage--the stereotypes were so dead on that we were a bit uncomfortable (ie. sitting on the toilet playing Scrabble on his phone). We laughed so hard and will recommend to our friends in their 40's with kids. I do wish the F-bombs and cursing would have been used less frequently. It was excessive and had no humor because of the overuse. Great life-stage movie!
