This Is 40

(R) ★★★☆☆

In the latest film from Judd Apatow, Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) reprise their roles from Knocked Up. They’ve reached age 40; there are money problems; Pete’s label is on the verge of insolvency; their sex life has cooled; Debbie becomes pregnant again. Rudd and Mann are incredibly skilled comedic actors, and there’s a lot to like here, with Albert Brooks and John Lithgow supporting to boot. But Apatow hesitates going deep enough, starting out well and bravely, and then settling for less.

Cirque du Soleil movies are a lot like ballet films—long on beauty and artistry, short on story. Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away is a 3-D catalog of the wonders of the Cirque company’s Las Vegas shows, from Criss Angel Believe and Mystére to O and Viva Elvis (which closed last August). It is a feast for the eyes and an appreciation of the accomplished art of the jugglers, tumblers, mimes, contortionists, acrobats and aerialists who have made Cirque a global brand.
