Though it won’t be released until December 21, 2012, the producers of This is 40 are giving comedy fans a sneak preview of what this highly anticipated, some-what -of -a-sequel-to-Knocked -Up movie is all about.
This is 40 picks up a few years after the birth of Ben Stone (Seth Rogen) and Allison Scott’s (Katherine Heigl’s) baby. Only those two characters won’t be in the movie. Instead director Judd Apatow is taking us into the lives of Debbie (Leslie Mann) and Pete (Paul Rudd).
If you remember, Mann’s character Debbie was incredibly insecure about growing old, so much so that she had a meltdown outside of a club when she couldn’t skip “all the other bitches” in line. Paul Rudd’s character Pete just wanted to play some fantasy baseball with his friends and maybe trip out on some drugs in Las Vegas without having to deal with all the pressure and stress that comes from being a father and husband.
The trailer shows Debbie and Paul fighting an uphill battle against aging, and features what’s becoming a standard Judd Apatow scene of a woman being examined by a gynecologist.
