'This is 40' or as Debbie (Leslie Mann) likes to say...38...Yep, she lies about her age...even to her gynecologist.
Debbie and Pete (Paul Rudd) her husband are turning 40, but Deb just won't admit it...Can't admit it...
Judd Apatow's new film 'This Is 40' is a followup to 'Knocked Up'. If you've been wondering what happened to those two main characters in that film, here's your chance to find out.
Debbie and Pete are happily maried with two girls, Sadie (Maude Apatow) and Iris (Charlotte Apatow) The family lives in a beautiful, lavish house that they can barely afford.
Pete's indie label isn't doing very well and his next big launch of Graham Parker And The Rumor's comeback record, doesn't look too promising.
Plus someone has stolen $13,000 from Leslie's Lula Lemon type store. It's either her top salesperson, Desi (Megan Fox) or her pet employee, Jodi (Charlene Yi).
On top of all this, Pete's father, (the wonderful smarmy, narcissitic, Albert Brooks) is constantly borrowing money him...money Pete doesn't have, but he just can't say 'no' to his daddy.
Oh did I mention that Debbie, also has a father (John Litgow) but he couldn't care less about her? All his affections are for his younger, picture perfect NEW family.
'This Is 40' is an emotionally insightful, hysterically funny film. It touches on issues everyone can relate to...sex, family, marriage, parents, kids, growing old, and life in general and it does it with Apatow's brilliant, spot on dialogue.
'This Is 40' opens in theatres, Friday, December 21, 2012...a perfect film for the holidays.
