This is the Trailer for This is 40


Judd Apatow’s Knocked Up was hilarious because of, among other things, because of its cast of characters. Now we get a sneak peek into its sequel/spin-off This is 40 starring the clearly exhausted yet adorably in love married couple of Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann. What’s it about? Well it picks up along the same thematic lines that were alluded to and joked about in Knocked Up—I’m thinking specifically of the subplot about Rudd’s fantasy baseball league.

The trailer is below. Rudd and Mann seem to have hit a midlife rut, and now they’re going to act in a way to break out of it. It maintains the classic conversational jokes and absurdity that pepper all Apatow comedies, along with a dose of drama and realism. Hopefully it maintains that precarious balance. Oh, also, the trailer has Paul Rudd inspecting his junk with some sort of makeshift, mirrored apparatus.

Also I’m hoping there’ll be more DeNiro impressions. Please God let there be more DeNiro impressions.

The film is set for release this December, and the cast is also reported to have Melissa McCarthy, John Lithgow, Megan Fox, and Lena Dunham.
