This movie looks really good. Judd Apatow anything is usually a safe bet. This is 40 is the kind of sequel to Knocked Up, but centers on Pete and Debbie’s relationship as they turn 40.
Paul Rudd is fucking fantastic always, and Leslie Mann is beautiful and awesome as a 40-year-old hot lady. Seriously, these people make 40 look like the new 30. Growing up is so easy for us. 30 is the new 24, and 40 is the new 30. 50 is 50 and 65 is the new 38, but with free time and no student loan payments.
Check out the trailer. I’m glad someone is making 40 look realistic but not so stupidly pathetic. Nothing ever HAS to be pathetic at 40, except like cosplay maybe, and still living with your parents.
I think it’s about high time Paul Rudd got a star on the walk of fame, don’t you?!
My first Paul Rudd experience was him as a socially and politically informed college student and Cher’s stepbrother in Clueless. After that, I can’t remember a time Paul Rudd wasn’t in our lives. Whether it was in movies or through his stint and Phoebe’s husband on Friends, one of the most successful sitcoms of all time, it seems like he’s always been there for us.
He’s also got a new movie coming out with Jennifer Aniston called Wanderlust(Here’s our Friends reunion, yay!) that looks really funny. He’s been a staple in comedy films and television that spans 3 decades, with starring roles in pretty much every major comedy film. I Love You, Man?! Come on! Comedic bromance gold! He even helped create one of my favorite Netflix picks, Party Down. If that’s not reason enough, then I don’t know what is!
Although I unfortunately do not know Paul Rudd, he has kept himself out of the hoopla of the Hollywood party and gossip rag scene, which is commendable. And he seems like a genuinely nice guy. If he somehow turns out to be a super turd-face actor-type, then there is no God, and Paul Rudd shall be deemed the best actor ever because he’s kept up that schtick his entire career. (It’s not true though, I just know it!)
He’s definitely one of the most liked men in Hollywood. I mean, have you ever heard anyone be like “Dude, I fucking HATE Paul Rudd.” If you ever cross anyone who says this, they probably hate puppies and chocolate malts, too. Get as far away from that person, forever. They are an alien here to destroy humanity, earth and life as we know it.
It’s no secret that comedy and comedians don’t get the same recognition as dramatic actors, which is such a pity because the ability to make someone laugh is equally as important as making someone cry.
So, I beg the question, when is our fabulous Paul Rudd going to get a star on the walk of fame?!
I first was made aware of Party Down in early 2011. If you have Netflix and have yet to see this show, it is an absolute must.
It follows the lives of caterers in Hollywood, all hoping to make it big someday, but stuck waiting at crazy events. The show, insanely, got cancelled after only two seasons on Starz. However, the show was so popular among fans (despite getting axed) that a movie is said to be in the works, a la Arrested Development.
Our fave Adam Scott, who you may know as the amazing Ben Wyatt on Parks and Recreation, plays Henry Pollard in Party Down which is, in my humble opinion, Scott’s best character to date.
Other stars of the show are Jane Lynch before she was stolen to be on Glee, Lizzy Caplan, Ken Marino, Ryan Hansen, Martin Starr and Megan Mullally.
