Movie Reviews

  • there are big laughs here, and smaller ones that sting
    3 of 4 by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone ]
  • the movie is not so much a cohesive story as a series of scenes, a collection of ideas that fall under the heading of an overarching theme: marriage in middle age
    2.5 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • the comic efforts both feel forced and undercut any attempt at drama
    1.5 of 4 by Kyle Smith [New York Post ]
  • it's an outpouring of raw material, an inventory of domestic hassles, marital spats and random insights and silliness that inches forward while running in place
    by Scott Tobias [NPR ]
  • isn't always hilarious, but it's ticklishly honest and droll about all the things being a parent can do to a relationship
    Review rate : A- by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • hardly a standard comedy length (although given the running times of the movies Apatow and his acolytes have been making, the average might be going up), and is filled with plot tendrils that are arguably inessential
    3.5 of 5 by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies ]
  • feels like five episodes of "Parenthood" spliced together with some naughty bits thrown in. The movie is funny at times
    Review rate : C by Tom Long [Detroit News ]
  • feels haphazard and unfinished, despite a few moments of laugh-out-loud humor
    2 of 4 by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post ]
  • everybody is horrible in "This Is 40"
    1 of 4 by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • every time that funny movie starts to emerge, Apatow tramples it with scenes of domestic irritation
    3 of 5 by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News ]
  • almost touches on something real in its light commentary on technology
    2.5 of 4 by Ricardo Baca [Denver Post ]
  • 3.5 of 5 Reviewed by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times ]
