Sort-of-sequel to Knocked Up delivers plenty of laughs but still hangs around for far too long
Judd Apatow's latest comedy had a pretty tough time with a lot of critics at cinemas, due to it being completely out of touch with what turning 40 means to anyone who isn't a Hollywood millionaire. Honestly, we could care less. The only thing that matters is that (despite being about half-an-hour too long) This is 40 is a very funny film that frequently had us in fits of laughter. The Blu-ray itself also managed to raise a smile with its proficient AVC 2.40:1 1080p encode and bountiful selection of extras – although the DTS-HD MA 5.1 mix could have been a lot more engaging.
This is 40, Universal Pictures, All-region BD, £25 Approx
