Judd Apatow doesn't make short movies. His the first film he directed, The 40 Year Old Virgin, clocks in at an hour and 56 minutes long - and that's his shortest one to date. His latest, This is 40 - which came into theaters this past weekend, doesn't break the trend that Apatow has started either, and is a full two hours and 14 minutes long. In the editing room, however, it wasn't just small bits and pieces that he had to delete from the final cut - he had at least one five and a half minute scene that didn't make it to theaters. But you can just watch it below.
Having seen the movie I can tell you that this would have been somewhere nearly the end of the second act and start of the third, but no plot details are given away so don't worry about spoilers. That said, let me lay down the warning of a long, awkward conversation and a pretty serious poop joke. Check it out, courtesy of Funny or Die.
This is 40, Apatow's fourth film, features Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann returning as Pete and Debbie, the married couple with two kids (Iris and Maude Apatow) from the writer/director's previous film, Knocked Up. Set five years after that film, the movie watches as the duo deal with the fact that they are getting older and have settled into a routine - all while facing some serious money problems. Albert Brooks, John Lithgow, Jason Segel, Megan Fox, Chris O'Dowd, Annie Mumolo and Robert Smigel. You can see the movie in theaters now, and if you head over to our Blend Film Database you can read Sean's review and watch a bunch of trailers.
