There are a few things to get out of "This is 40" -- like all those "Lost" references and Albert Book -- the new film, written and directed by funnyman Judd Apatow. But we would argue that it's not nearly as entertaining as some of the other movies that Apatow has attached his name to as a producer/creative ambassador.

In that spirit, we came up with a list of the ten best things that Apatow has produced or written but didn't direct. (Sadly, this does discount "Freaks and Geeks" and "Undeclared." Sorry team.) If you're looking to pre-game before "This is 40" (which hits theaters on December 21) any one of these would make a fine choice.
