The First Trailer for ‘This is 40’ Nails the Mid-Life Crisis,...

Every few years, famed comedy director Judd Apatow rises from the ground to return to the director's chair, covered in dirt and spare $100 bills.  Most of the time, Apatow only returns because he has some intimate or personal story to share, ala Funny People.  Or he just wants you to laugh your balls off, ala The 40 Year Old Virgin or Knocked Up.  You know, whatever works.  Regardless, the next movie from director Judd Apatow is always held in high esteem.  This time around, we're getting This is 40, the Knocked Up semi-sequel countinuing the story of side characters Pete and Debbie (played by Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann).  This one seems to be on the more personal side of the spectrum, as it shows Pete and Debiie working their way through a midlife crisis.  Which is fine setup for a comedy.  But if this is a comedy from Judd Apatow...why the hell am I not laughing?

Horrible Bosses Review: Three Men Plot to Kill Their Bosses in...

Reviewing a comedy is one of the hardest things to do in the film journalism world.  Unlike action movies or drama flicks, a comedy is completely dependent on one thing, and one thing only; did you laugh?  It could be terribly directed and have a piss poor plot but, if you laughed enough, none of that would really matter anyways.  So going into this review of Horrible Bosses, know this; I cannot understand your sense of humor.  To do that, I imagine it would take weeks of long, hard psychoanalysis.  But I do know mine.  And for what it's worth, Horrible Bosses tickled my funny bone just right.
