The latest film from Judd Apatow follows in the vein of the director’s signature thought-provoking comedy. Based on characters appearing in Knocked Up, This Is 40 follows Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann as they deal with the stresses of life while turning 40. With a runtime well over two hours, This Is 40 could have easily excised some scenes to make for a smoother experience. Then again, a film with some extraneous elements feels suited for its runtime.
