This movie seemed to go on forever. another u.s comedy with no actual comedy in it ( where's the laughs) . the end was the finniest part which i think was a outake. the rest was boring . The cast are likeable but its not enough.

I Hope That's NOT 40

As the Plot Outline says, this is a spinoff of Knocked Up (2007). Except there is no sight of Seth Rogan, Katherine Heigl, or Jonah Hill. Pete and Debbie (Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann) are struggling running their own businesses while also raising two kids. They both have what I would call a mid-life crisis that probably comes from both of them having daddy issues. I didn't mind this film, but my wife hated it, mainly because there is no resolution (did they have to sell their house)? But, it does seem to me that they both reconciled with their fathers.

One thing of note, Leslie Mann is Judd Apatow's wife in real life and Sadie and Charlotte were played by Maude and Iris Apatow, their daughters.

I found the lack of actual comedy a little disconcerting. I expected more from …

Not as funny as Knocked Up

One of a few movies i sat down to watch this weekend, this being the only movie of the lot that i hadn't yet seen. Having really enjoyed it's predecessor 'Knocked Up' (#81 on my top 100 movies of all time list) I started this film with slight optimistic hope as i knew that it revolved around Kathy Heigl's sister and brother in law in the original, however neither Seth Rogen or Heigl were involved with this project. Although the next best thing to Rogen is Paul Rudd so here we go... I found this film contained no where near the laughs the first one did however it was still somewhat funny. Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann both reprise their roles from Knocked Up as Pete and Debbie , 5 years after the events of Knocked Up Pete is approaching his 40th birthday and is entirely stressed out not …

Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) are your typical married couple whose marriage has lost its spark. They argue and fight a lot, but still connected and bonded from having two daughters pre-teen Sadie who is obsessed with technology (Iphone, Ipad, Ipod) and Lost Series and the younger Charlotte who is hell-bent on bothering her big sister.

Debbie has just turned 40 and doesn't want to admit it defiantly insisting that she is still only 38. (Really what woman wouldn’t lie about her age hahaha????) This midlife crisis leads to her questioning her relationship with Pete, who also has to face his own problems of dealing with a mooching father, Larry (Albert Brooks), on top of his emotional wife. Pete is a typical male, does not care about health or being 40, eats cupcakes, has a …
