New 'This Is 40' Trailer Gives Paul Rudd's Undercarriage New Tasks

"THIS IS EVERYONE'S STORY," promises this trailer for Judd Apatow's Knocked Up sort-of-sequel, This Is 40. But mostly it's everyone who is 40-ish, white, comically-charming, and relatively well-off's story, with this latest preview focusing on such sitcom-level struggles as fake-pooping with an iPad, argumentative fellow parents, the trauma of having breasts less ideal than Megan Fox's, and the bickering that accompanies the constant wish of kind of wanting your spouse to die. The new trailer also reveals some story beats seemingly lifted straight out of Knocked Up, like Seek Wisdom from Fat Jewish Dad, and Do Drugs on Vacation with Paul Rudd. Still, it's hard to deny the appeal of Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann's on-screen mugging, and appearances by Melissa McCarthy, Chris O'Dowd, and Albert Brooks provide a welcome distraction for when you start noticing how weirdly-stitched-together Mann's voice consistently sounds.
