This Is 40, 2012 - ★★½

Judd Apatow really needs to make friends with some editors. Like many of his films This Is 40 is way too long but it's also badly put together. Related scenes often seem to contradict each other but most of the film feels like a collection of unrelated moments. It's a shame because whilst it would be hard to describe the characters as likable, they are relatable and often quite funny. Instead we're presented with what feels like a compilation of outtakes from a better TV show like Modern Family.
