This is 40

If you want to see a film that will make you LOL, go see This is 40. I loved it, my husband not so much. He had trouble empathizing with the characters because they are fairly dishonest with each other. I on the other hand found a certain truthfulness in the characters imperfections and lack of honesty,

The film could really be titled This is the Apatows at 40 because Judd Apatow, the film’s creator, cast his real life wife, Leslie Mann, and their daughters, Iris and Maude Apatow, in the lead roles. I think it is very cool that the family works together on films and imagine the bonds created are rock solid; antithetical to the more typical Hollywood working family lifestyle, where all the family members are running in opposite directions. One of my best friends lives in Hollywood Hills and works in the film industry in Hollywood, and I know this to be true from speaking with her about the daily struggles of being a mom while working in the industry.

If you go, don’t miss Melissa McCarthy’s hysterical outtake after the credits have rolled.

This is 40 now playing at Loews
