Saw this in the theater. It was a fun enough film, though it is very much age and marital status specific in whether or not you will enjoy it. Was a fun watch once, not sure it warrants multiple viewings though.
Another solid and very funny dramedy from Judd Apatow. The final act kinda fell apart a bit and Albert Brook's character was pretty unlikable, but nonetheless it was still quite good and I'm sure a lot of people will be able to relate to the material. Day 1 for me.
If not for Melissa McCarthy this movie would have been as painful as the marriage it portrays. Some incredibly, outrageously hilarious scenes mashed into an altogether miserable storyline, populated by mostly miserable characters.
Saw it over the weekend. This is very underrated and might actually be Apatow's best, IMO. I thought it was hilarious and incredibly touching. Having married friends in their 30's and 40's I found this really honest and truthful. I couldn't help but see my friends in these characters. Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann were great. Especially Mann. I loved the ending. Would enjoy revisiting these characters again someday.
nathanp, it's definitely better than Funny People. I found that movie pretty insufferable and couldn't even finish it. I wasn't expecting a lot from this one going by what I'd heard but it was a big surprise for me. I was really impressed.
Has to be one of the best Apatow movies. Maybe I like it so much because my wife and I could relate to it. Basically, Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd were the only things I liked about Knocked Up. I bought Knocked Up just for them. Buying this movie will be a no-brainer. The parts in This is 40 with Jason Segal and "Jodie" were great as well.
Here's what you learn from this movie: Aging is hard. Being married is rough. Parents and children don't always see eye to eye. And your children won't like the same things you like.
It's too long and awful. Rudd and Mann are so much better than this. The only thing positive about it is that it's better than Funny People...but not by much.
