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.

I thought this movie was splendid, and funny... much better than I expected. My guess is that you must be able to relate to the situation in some capacity to be able to enjoy it (i.e. married, kids, age, etc). I'm married in my late 20s with no kids yet and totally got the humor of it all.
If you can draw comparisons in any way to the premise of the movie, then go see it... but go with your husband/wife!

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.

This is a basic film of today's family. If you like watching dis functional family at hand then this is the movie for you, of course they added a basic story line to it basically to keep you interested. Its a very long movie for what it is about and would not recommend it to anyone.
