This Is 40 (2012)

This Is 40 (2012)
Directed by: Judd Apatow
Country: USA

Review: Judd Apatow offers another agitated comedy with “This is 40”, a movie that tries to be cool but ends to be exhaustively tasteless. Ten percent of the jokes were well set, while the rest seemed forced and tactless. A more creative plot was needed to make me involved, instead of relying on a bunch of goofy jokes about sex, getting old, farting or hemorrhoids. The acting, often unnatural and full of hysteria, just bored me even more. We can still add to all these factors, an excess of language abuse – once in a while it can be funny, but throughout the whole movie it becomes tiresome and inappropriate. “This is 40” is simply a bad movie, lacking any type of smartness and denoting a great dose of childish talks and behaviors.
