Five years after we were introduced to Pete and Debbie in Knocked Up, Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann reprise thir roles as husband and wife this time approaching a middle-aged meltdown. After years of marriage, Pete lives in a house of all females, his wife Debbie and their two daughters Charlotte (Iris Apatow) and Sadie (Maude Apatow), played by Judd's real life children.
Pete owns a stuggling record label and Debbie is desperately trying to figure out how to improve their relationship, which has turned into a series of arguments, lies and blame as they both approach 40. As they try to balance romance, careers, parents and children in their own hilarious ways, they must also figure out how to enjoy the rest of their lives.
This is 40 is a candidly honest portrait of the challenges and rewards of marriage and parenthood in the modern age. The film follows one couple's three-week navigation of sex, romance, career triumphs and financial hardships, available to take home on Blu-ray, DVD & UltraViolet.
