I’m a fan of Judd Apatow. From the movies he’s directed, to thing’s he been involved in as either a writer or producer. From The Larry Sanders Show to Freaks and Geeks, I’ve always found value in everything he’s put his stamp on. But when I first heard about This is 40 and the premise behind it, I wasn’t super psyched about it. It seemed like he was stretching an idea a little too thin. That may still be the case, but this new trailer gives me hope I may be wrong.
Yep Judd, I hear you, growing up and getting old sucks. That’s why I still wear band t-shirts and skirt everything associated with growing up and getting old. What can I say, I don’t want to grow up…I’m a Toy-R-Us kid. I’m mean, I’m literally a couple of steps away from just moving back to my parents house just so I can not do grown up things like pay rent. Then that money can be used for more important things, like going out to eat every night and band t-shirts. I’m getting off topic aren’t I? We should talk a little about the movie.
This is 40 is filled with Apatow regulars and…Albert F***in Brooks. It’s so good to see Albert in anything and he has one of the better moments in the trailer. The one problem with Apatow movies is if you aren’t a fan of his previous endeavors, you probably won’t like this one either. Luckily, I’m not one of those people and I’m now really looking forward to This is 40.
So on Dec 21st, let’s all go and look for the starfish shall we?
