The Independent Culture

Judd Apatow's "sort-of sequel" to Knocked Up revisits the married couple played by Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann, now found to be suffering a mid-life crisis – although it's only a crisis if you're used to the sort of moneyed Californian privilege that Apatow enjoys.

This is 40 is a long, self-indulgent ramble through a series of anticlimactic vignettes, but it has just enough piquant jokes about life's frustrations to save it.
