This is 40

The sort-of sequel to ''Knocked Up''


This is 40
A followup to the couple who featured in Apatow's Knocked Up, who are now hitting forty as per the title. They spend a lot of time bickering about things that all married couples fight about, but which does not necessarily make for entertaining viewing. Expect the usual Apatow blend of crude language and humour.

133 minutes.
No persons under 16 (Language, Sex, Nudity).
Comedy.

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Theresa Smith quote iconOutrageously dirty humour. Could've done with a good edit and an actual point.

Cape Times
Todd McCarthy quote iconNew comedy doesn't quite hit the mark.

The Citizen
Leon van Nierop quote iconThis film confronts your sensitivities with the power of a steam engine thundering through a tunnel.

Justin Hess quote iconIt's not a bad film at all but your enjoyment of it will depend on which camp you fall into.

Box Office
Amy Nicholson quote iconFans to Judd Apatow: ''We want a divorce''
3
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconYields some of Apatow's most personal observations yet on the feelings for husbands, wives, parents, and children that we categorize as love.
15
ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconSimply put, if you enjoy scenes of people bickering, yelling and acting like spoiled brats at times, this might be right up your alley of dysfunctional family fiction. If not, it's about as much fun as watching a couple rise to a slow boil of marital trouble before your eyes.

Tomatometer quote iconJudd Apatow definitely delivers funny and perceptive scenes in This is 40, even if they are buried in aimless self-indulgence.
