Paul Rudd, Jason Segel And More Can't Keep It Together In This Is 40 Blooper Reel

I can't even imagine how hard it must be keeping a straight face on the set of a Judd Apatow movie. The writer/director regularly brings together the funniest people acting in movies today and not only does he give them funny scripts to work from, he also lets them improvise and make the material the best it can be. And as professional as the stars are, it's totally understandable that they would occasionally break down and just start guffawing. Need proof? Just watch the newly released blooper reel from Apatow's latest feature, This is 40.

The video is actually the latest in a long line of internet releases for the film featuring material that one would think would be saved for the Blu-ray/DVD release. Just a few days after the comedy hit theaters Universal began releasing deleted scenes and that has continued through this week. The new clip comes to us courtesy of Funny or Die and you can watch it below.

My favorite part? When Jason Segel is trying to deliver the line, "Everything you need is inside of you" and starts berating himself for not being a professional ("Come on, Segel! This is what you do!"). It's clear how hard the guy is working, but at the same time his plight is understandable: after all, he is basically dry humping the director's wife on camera and delivering one hell of a double entendre at the same time.

This is 40 will next be making its way to home video, but a date has not yet been announced. To see more from the movie head over to our Blend Film Database.
