About This Is 40
Fuelled by a successful formula of raunch and sap, the Judd Apatow juggernaut rumbles on with this comedy based on two supporting characters from the hugely popular 'Knocked Up'. Paul (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Lesle Mann) are a photogenic couple reflecting on their lives as they approach their 40th birthdays. Debbie runs a clothing shop while Pete tends to his ailing independent record company. As they work their adequately-paid jobs and tend to their quirky but cute kids in their comfortable but not palatial home, the ravages of daily life leave them to wonder if their marriage has run out of steam. Debbie decides to make more of an effort to connect with her family but finds it difficult to reach out to her father, while Pete worries about his business. When they run into financial difficulties they start to feel the strain even more.
