Movie Review: This is 40
"This is 40" is semi-sequel to the movie Knocked Up. It stars Paul Rudd as Pete and Leslie Mann as Debbie-two characters that were introduced in the movie Knocked Up. It would have been nice if the main characters of Knocked Up were at least in it for a cameo, but the movie was really about what it is like to turn 40, and those characters were younger. I suspect that birthdays probably aren't as traumatic for a lot of other people, but the people who go on as usual don't tend to make for good cinema. As a dog who is not a puppy anymore, I can understand that it is nice to be young, but there is something to be said for growing old since everyone does not get that opportunity. This movie is rated R so I don't necessarily recommend it for viewing by young children. It is an enjoyable way to spend some time, and the movie does have some funny moments. I give it 4 paws up which, on the human movie scale is a 6 out of 10. If you liked the movie, Knocked Up, you will probably like this movie. If you hated Knocked Up, save your money and don't go to see This is 40 because you probably won't like it either.
