    That's what makes This Is 40 so potently, painfully funny, even when it's gross. What other film would dare suggest rectal monitoring as a form of closeness? show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    The real problem with This Is 40 is its lack of truth, that Apatow wanted to express something about married life, and it eluded him. After all, no less than Kierkegaard once said that the actual dynamics of marriage are beyond the scope of art, and he was the best movie critic of the 19th century. show more

    Give it plenty of points for brutal honesty. But This is 40 could have used more laughs. show more
