That was an excellent one.
Simple and well acted, it has tension enough to knot the stomach.
The film makes a home in your brain and the only cure is to see it again.
The plot isn't so bad, but the pace of storytelling is too slow which makes people bored. Certain moments are so obvious and unnecessary for the main plot. I would've fast-forwarded those moments if it was an online streaming. The ending looks like implying a sequel, not sure if this movie will get one
Rewatching this on FX and it is God awful. So depressing and just nasty. If you were ever on the fence about marriage, just watch this and then enjoy your life being single. How did this get made?
This woman has literally ever thing a human female could ever want, a beautiful home, loving husband and children, any luxury at her fingertips. Its not enough, apparently. See, she's turned 40, and she doesn't like it. The aging process is sexist. She is offended by the existence of a younger, hotter woman...Tough beans lady!Thusly, she's entitled to whine like a brat, cheat on her husband, chew out 10-year old boys and feel sorry for herself.This is just despicable material. Apatow is peddling garbage. American women are the most over-privileged creatures in human history, yet we're meant to see them as victims?
I've heard said that this is Apatow's worst movie. This is complete horse dang. This picture has more real body to it than anything he's done. It's not just a bald comedy. It's life. That is, pain and humor. Bluster and secrets. Beauty and embarrassment. Sean Penn said once that if you want entertainment, go get an 8-ball and a few prostitutes. That real art is about sharing. The things that make us less alone. I'll wrap up here cause I feel myself getting verbose but Leslie Mann is a Got damn revelation. As are her children, especially the oldest daughter, Maude. This movie got too little recognition. I only hope it gets a cult-y thing going before its all said and done. Who knows? Movies live forever. Thank God.
about a bad marriage. I originally thought this was a different movie and had high expectations...then ever so slowly I realized I simply MUST have gotten it wrong. I had to have mixed this movie up with another, an error in communication. My brain, eyes and ears paid the price for this egregious error. Nothing about this is realistic at all. If you're 40, you've more than likely scrapped that bad marriage somewhere in your 30s. It was excruciating to sit through just over 2hrs of this garbage. I want to take a guitar string and whip everyone in the face - including those irritating children. Whose children behave in the manner these two did? Everything was super exaggerated and ridiculous. What kids continue YELLING AT FULL VOLUME, SCREAMING AND BANGING on their locked parent's door after being told to stop??!! Multiple times! What teenage girl is perpetually angry, yelling, whiny and mean --even to her parents 24x7x365??? Oh wait, it's because she got her period....F*ck off, F*ck right the h3ll off. This movie is ridiculous and vulgar. Yes, more vulgar than me saying F*CK OFF to this movie. And oh yeah, F*ck off movie. I bought none of what was being sold here and honestly this is pretty much the polar opposite of 40. I wanted to be articulate and give a decent review but anger over the 2+hrs I lost watching this - AT WORK - has fractured my mind and this became a rant instead. Abhorrent, self-absorbed, pretentious POS.
