Following The 40-Year-Old Virgin (2005), Knocked Up (2007) and Funny People (2009), this is 45-year-old Judd Apatow’s fourth film as writer-director. In his latest offering he has cast Paul Rudd as Pete, and his own wife (Leslie Mann) in the role of Pete's wife, Debbie. He has also cast his own children (Maude and Iris Apatow) as Pete and Debbie’s pre-teen daughters. A personal story? One may think.
As the awesome on-screen couple face the daunting milestone of the big four-oh, they don’t always do it very gracefully, proving that with age doesn’t always come wisdom. The film has all the ingredients for a smart and enjoyable comedy, but it’s also a very real and somewhat painful study of married life and parenthood.
