This is 40 - Movie Review

This is 40 (R) 133 minutes B
40 is the new 30

Starring John Lithgow, Lena Dunham, Chris O'Dowd, Megan Fox, Charlyne Yi, Albert Brooks,  Jason Segel, Melissa McCarthy, Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann

This is 40 is a funny, manic and slightly annoying film about turning 40. It's typical Judd Apatow, so if you like his brand of humor drop what you're doing and go see this film NOW.  Oh, and if you are 40, was 40, or about to turn 40, you'll probably get a kick out of this as well.  As for everyone else, unless you like whiny, miserable, beautiful yuppies, you might want to wait for this one to arrive on DVD/home video.
Bonus DVD/Home Rental Review
Bachelorette (R) 87 Minutes D-
Completely Forgettable

Theatrical release September 2012
Starring Kirsten Dunst, Isla Fisher, Lizzy Caplan, Rebel Wilson, Adam Scott, James Marsden

Riding the coattails of Bridesmaids and The Hangover, this film was utterly stupid and disappointing.  Don't waste your time.
