This new trailer for Judd Apatow's THIS IS 40 tells everyone's story

There are few people who can handle the chimeric genre of dramedy as well as Judd Apatow. His 40-Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up were both pretty good, which is why I’m really looking forward to his spin-off sequel to the latter, in the form of This is 40.

While not going for laugh out loud moments quite as much as the first one, this new trailer really seems to be selling the bittersweet slice of life angle, which is something a lot of us should be able to identify with. Also, there’s Megan Fox in her underwear talking about her boobs. Sold.

Paul Rudd getting shouted at by his wife while playing iPad games on the toilet? I’ve been that guy. And admit it, so have you. That’s actually what I think is going to draw in the crowds for this one, that sense of familiarity. My only issue I have with this trailer is that anybody who’s seen last year’s The Change Up knows, Leslie Mann, despite being much older, can show herself off proudly next to Megan Fox.
Synopsis:
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 first-hand how they are dealing with their current state of life.
