They never let me anywhere near the studios but I'm sure I'd have the best "one hour - all request hour" if they did!
Have you ever watched a movie that was so uncomfortable at times because somehow, the characters on the screen were having the SAME CONVERSATION you have had maybe in your head or with close friends? Okay. And while you're watching this play out on a GIANT screen in front of you, your wife is sitting right next to you. Ever had that happen?
That moment is going to happen a lot in the movie This is 40. The beauty of this film is that if you are older than 30 - you're going to get A LOT of the content in this movie. Families, kids, work, stress, marriage, life. If you are still single and in your twenties, you'd be better off watching Texas Chainsaw Massacre in 3D, screaming at the top of your lungs.
There are scenes in This Is 40 that will have you laughing so hard. Like when the woman in the workout group talks about her "love life."
There are lines that are so funny you will find yourself quoting them for days, like when Albert Brooks' asks to borrow money for a bab, "You only have a $100? That's okay, I'll bring back the change."
But its the "real life" drama that somehow is weaved throughout this "comedy" that will bring you back to reality and ask yourself those life defining questions... like the converstations in the first thirty seconds of this trailer:
The critics that said the movie is too long need to be slapped. You will find yourself sitting through the credits - I GAURANTEE! Throw down your hard earned $11 this weekend and buy a ticket to this movie.
