Like any good filmmaker, Judd Apatow has a specific voice and in three films under his belt has focused on one subject, in varying degrees; maturing.
Putting away childish things (The 40 Year Old Virgin), becoming a parent (Knocked Up) and facing one's mortality (Funny People). Here is the latest, the "sort-of-sequel" to Knocked Up, This is 40 with Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann reprising their Pete and Debbie characters.
The title, and accompanying trailer, says it all. It's about getting older. Something we can all relate to. Looks promising (Nice to see returning alums Jason Segel, also returning from Knocked Up, and Melissa McCarthy), just hope Apatow has matured enough as a filmmaker and learn to cut the fat. Good as his films have been, we don't see more comedies clocking in at over two and a half hours.
