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.

I did not expect to enjoy this movie so much. I am so glad I did, hands down one of my favorite movies of the year and I see lots of them.

It is very seldom that I have walked out of a movie, but I came very close to doing just that after watching this HORRIBLE film. I expected it to be light-hearted and funny. Instead it was boring and depressing with a non-existent story line that made no sense and went no where. The best part of the whole movie was about 2 minutes that were dedicated to a small role that Melissa McCarthy had. She was hysterical, the rest was just DUMB! Save your $10 and spend it on a decent movie!

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.

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!
