In Judd Apatow‘s latest film, This Is 40, the writer/director revisits characters he created in 2007’s Knocked Up and examines the foibles of marriage.
Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) are a married couple in their 40s with children (Mann’s real-life daughters, Maude and Iris Apatow) under pressure, both economic and emotional.
