Apatow’s new film thinly entertaining
Stupid freaking Judd Apatow, with his stupid freaking foul-mouthed and sentimental “Hobbit”-length comedies, his stupid freaking insistence on not only peopling them with his old comic cronies, but his wife and cursing kids.
Happy freaking R-rated holidays, America. Here’s your “Meet the Parents” this year – longer and less funny.
“This Is 40” – the very premise is flawed, since everybody knows “50 is the new 40” – is a sort of sequel to “Knocked Up” that catches up with the struggling, funny and quite real sidekick couple of that film, Debbie and Pete, played by Leslie Mann (Mrs. Apatow) and Paul Rudd. It’s an intermittently amusing dance through generations of bad parenting come home to roost, poor family planning and worse economic planning, when they both hit that milestone birthday, which tells Debbie they’re getting old.
