This is 40 opens in theaters on Friday, December 21!

I am a huge, gigantic, over-the-mom fan of everything Judd Apatow does, and I have been looking forward to This is 40 all year!

While Angeline is out with friends on Friday, Chris and I are heading to the movies to stuff our faces with popcorn, cherry coke icees and laugh ourselves silly. I can’t wait!

Five years after writer/director Judd Apatow introduced us all 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.


I mean, come on…we all loved Seth Rogan in Knocked Up, but Pete and Debbie were the perfect characters to base a sequel on!

So what is This is 40 about?

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.

In his fourth directorial outing, Apatow’s new comedy captures what it takes for one family to flourish in the middle of a lifetime together.

What emerges 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.

    I cannot WAIT to see this! I love their characters so much and Leslie Mann’s daughters are great little actresses and not to mention so pretty like their mama.

    It’s kinda sad but I’m creeping up on 30 and I can totally relate to the mom in the preview. And I’ve already lived one of those scenes (I won’t say which one).
