Consensus: Judd Apatow definitely delivers funny and perceptive scenes in This is 40, even if they are buried in aimless self-indulgence.

However irritating 'This Is 40' is at times, there's a warmth that wins you over, and an honesty about families.

Judd Apatow is not a disciplined artist. And that's a good thing.

If this is what 40 is like, someone needs a reality check.

Apparently Apatow's penchant for if-it's-not-broke filmmaking isn't changing anytime soon. And it's a shame, because while This is 40 has plenty of laughs, it lacks decency and heart.

"This Is 40" tends to be about the self-inflicted problems of spoiled upper-middle class white people. Which can be sort of funny, sure. Sort of.

The performers are so likable that you stay with them even when, as is often the case, the material is hit-or-miss.

No one could be as whiny, spoiled, tasteless, combative and reliant on annoying stand-up comedy riffs as the entire cast of this film, the most disappointing one of the year.

For Apatow to get to the point where Oscar voters start taking notice, he needs to start acting more like he's 40, not 14.

Light-hearted parenting sitcom that is entertaining enough albeit cheesy in an American way.

uninspiring comedy that keeps you waiting all movie just for a simple giggle!

"This is 40" is definitely Judd Apatow's weakest directorial effort to date, but it's not a film to dismiss because of it. The film has a… More

I found 'This Is 40' to be a funnier and far more enjoyable film than I had originally expected. One of the film's major highlights are the… More

Functioning as both a stand alone film, and a sort-of sequel/spin-off to Knocked Up, this is a look at the lives of married couple Pete and Debbie as they both… More
