From the looks of it, “This is 40” is a movie about Judd Apatow and his wife Leslie Mann, who stars in the movie as, well, Leslie Mann. The film co-stars Mann and Apatow’s daughters, Maude and Iris, as Mann’s daughters. Paul Rudd, though, stands in for Judd Apatow. Which I guess makes for some interesting dynamics on and off the set. Anyways, check out the first trailer for “This is 40”, which is cute and funny and might just be pretty darn good. Plus, Jason Segel transforms Leslie Mann into “a boner machine.” I guffawed loudly at that one.
Writer/director/producer Judd Apatow (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Funny People) brings audiences This Is 40, an original comedy that expands upon the story of Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) from the blockbuster hit Knocked Up as we see firsthand how they are dealing with their current state of life.
