My expectations for this one might have been higher than usual since I thought The 40-Year-Old Virgin was so good. While writer/director Judd Apatow has disappointed in the past — that Ron Burgundy movie is simply unwatchable — he delivers in this movie. For any thirty-something that has gone through the joys and travails of having a baby, there are plenty of references in this movie that will strike very close to home.
Oh, and keep an eye on Kristen Wiig. She is a scene-stealer in this film, her brilliant character work on SNL is reminiscent of Gilda Radner, and I predict her career is about to blow up.
