Paul Rudd (Our Idiot Brother) and Leslie Mann (The Change-Up) again star as Pete and Debbie, a husband and wife balancing kids, work and life. All this while approaching the milestone of turning 40 and figuring out how to enjoy the rest of their lives.
With mixed reviews, the R-rated movie grossed only about half its predecessor at the box office, with around $66 million. Washington Post critic Michael O’Shannon said This Is 40 “feels haphazard and unfinished, despite a few moments of laugh-out-loud humor.” Peter Rainer of the Christian Science Monitor was kinder, but still reserved in his praise: “The performers are so likable that you stay with them even when, as is often the case, the material is hit-or-miss.”
An unrated edition of the film will be on the Blu-ray/DVD Combo, as well as a downloadable digital copy and instant streaming of This Is 40 via UltraViolet.

- gag reel
