The Plot: This is 40 expands upon the story of Pete (Rudd) and Debbie (Mann) from Knocked Up, picking up about five years later to see first-hand how they are dealing with their current state of life. The comedy also stars John Lithgow, Chris O'Dowd, Megan Fox, Iris Apatow, Maude Apatow, Melissa McCarthy, Robert Smigel, Charlene Yi and Albert Brooks.
Why It's a Must-See: Turning 40 can't be that bad, can it? That's the question director Judd Apatow explores in his new sorta-sequel to Knocked Up, and woeful, true life moments often provide fuel for some hearty comedic moments. "There is something about turning 40 that just does feel different," fortysomething star Paul tells ET. "Women care more about turning 30 than guys. But guys with 40 -- even the sound it … it's like you're dropping a bunch of bricks." Leslie adds, "I had a meltdown at 30. It was hard. It was really hard. That was a tough one."
