This Is 40

This is 134 minutes! Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann star as the now-married couple Judd Apatow first introduced us to in Knocked Up. (Katherine Heigl, who told Vanity Fair that the original “paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as lovable, goofy, fun-loving guys” was not invited back for the sequel.) Rudd has a dream of introducing a new generation to Graham Parker, while Mann is desperately clinging to 39. The largely improvised marital skit-com marks Apatow’s fourth jaunt in the director’s chair; at least this time, he has the good sense to feature Albert Brooks in a meaty supporting role as Rudd’s dependent father. There are the usual amount of gross-out jokes one associates with the Apatow factory, along with the usual featherweight observational material — he sneaks cupcakes, she hides cigarettes — sprinkled with topical references. And what would a Viagra opener be without a subsequent stream of penis jokes? As much as I enjoy watching Albert on screen, in this case, his comedic timing would have been put to better use if he'd been hired as an editorial consultant to whittle away a half-hour. With Jason Segal, Robert Smigel, and Megan Fox. (2012) — Scott Marks
