Monday Movie Reveiw

This is 40
I've been wanting to see this movie for a while now. I loved Knocked Up, loved the previews for this, and thought it would be a really fun movie. Except this wound up being not quite what I expected.

Now there were a lot of funny moments. Except the first half of the movie felt like funny scenes stuck together without much of a plot. The plot did pick up at the end, but still a lot of this didn't work for me.

I don't think this is a bad movie, and again liked a lot of the moments within it. I could see this as a great background movie. You know the type you have on to watch while you mindlessly do laundry, but I don't see myself sitting down to watch this again.

And for a few final randoms details, I did love how their daughter had an American Girl doll in her room. And I didn't love that Katherine Heigl and and Seth Rogan didn't have a single cameo. For a sort-of-sequel you think they could have least been in one scene, or even just mentioned in passing.


  1. I heard there was a picture of them shown in the movie. but most people who have seen it agree with you and did not like it!

  2. Oh no! My hubs and I were dying to see, but now I think we'll put it on the backburner... sigh. Or maybe just once it's out on video!
    AND THAT IS SO EXCITING THAT YOU LIVE IN LOUISIANA!!! I LOVE CALIFORNIA, BUT LOVE ANOTHER LOUISIANIAN HERE!!! And love that LSU pic!!!! :) I went to LSU for law school but am now living in NOLA! Can't wait to start reading your blog!

  3. I've been wanting to see this one. But I guess I'll wait til it's out on DVD.
