Review: This is 40 (Judd Apatow, 2013)


Written and directed by Judd Apatow (The 40-Year Old Virgin, Funny People), This is 40 follows married couple Debbie (Leslie Mann) and Pete (Paul Rudd), first introduced in Apatow’s 2007 hit, Knocked Up. We re-visit them on the morning of Debbie’s 40th birthday – and the film concludes with a party to celebrate Pete’s 40th – and traverses their marriage, their relationships with their family and their tumultuous personal lives over a number of weeks, revealing they are in serious turmoil.
