Synopsis: A look at the lives of Pete and Debbie a few years after the events of Knocked Up.
Release Date: December 21, 2012
Thoughts: In my review of the teaser trailer to This Is 40 I made mention that while I was a fan of director Judd Apatow’s work I remain concerned that he doesn’t know how to edit himself. His movies tend to run long and belabor the points that he’s made at several junctions. I’m betting this “sorta sequel” to Knocked Up runs over two hours but let’s hope against hope that Apatow has learned how to edit judiciously. This second trailer opens up the film a bit to show more of the supporting players (many are Apatow staples) and gives us a heads up that the raunchy humor will be delivered in full force. I think Rudd and Mann are appealing actors and non-traditional leading players so am looking forward to this…I just want to know how large of a soda I’ll have to get so as not to need a bathroom break.
