This Is (Futile) 40?

One of Hollywood’s big offerings for the holiday season is a raunchy comedy about midlife crisis, THIS IS 40. Writer-director Judd Apatow, best known for hits like KNOCKED UP, uses his real-life wife, Leslie Mann, and their two young daughters to star in a story of an LA record executive suddenly worried about Viagra, hemorrhoids, and overdue bills.

Despite a few funny moments, the movie’s inexplicably unhappy people turn to psycho-therapists, personal trainers, Eastern healers and recreational drugs to fill empty places in their lives.

With a wealth of supporting characters played by John Lithgow, Albert Brooks, Jason Segel, Megan Fox and more, no one ever considers religious involvement for answers – an odd feature in a film released at a time of year when most Americans do take a few moments, at least, to celebrate traditional faith.
