Five years after writer/director Judd Apatow introduced us to Pete and Debbie in Knocked Up, Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann reprise their roles as a husband and wife both approaching a milestone meltdown in This Is 40, an unfiltered, comedic look inside the life of an American family. After years of marriage, Pete lives in a house of all females: wife Debbie and their two daughters, eight-year-old Charlotte (Iris Apatow) and 13-year-old Sadie (Maude Apatow). As he struggles to keep his record label afloat, he and Debbie must figure out how to forgive, forget and enjoy the rest of their lives...before they kill each other. Apatow's fourth directorial outing is a deeply honest portrait of the challenges and rewards of marriage and parenthood in the modern age. Through the filmmaker's unblinking lens, we follow one couple's three-week navigation of sex and romance, career triumphs and financial hardships, aging parents and maturing children.
