I’m not even a Sofia Coppola superfan, but I’m still anxiously awaiting parking my mall-jean-clad butt in a theater seat to watch “The Bling Ring” about the Hollywood teenagers who broke into celebrities’ homes and steal their Acne jean. Maybe it’s because Coppola actually filmed inside Paris Hilton’s weird home with pictures of herself all over the place? Or maybe because it stars Emma Watson pole dancing in stripper heels and Taissa Farmiga, the girl from “American Horror Story” season one? Or because Leslie Mann made a vision board of Angelina Jolie’s life? Gahhh, this is going to be amazing. [YouTube]
Starring Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, Maude Apatow, Iris Apatow, Jason Segel, Megan Fox, Chris O’Dowd, Albert Brooks and John Lithgow
Simply put, “This Is 40″ left a sour taste in my mouth. I felt like Judd Apatow did what he always does, which is write a plum role for his wife, and then decide: “Hey, I’ll throw every other funny person I know in this movie! And also Megan Fox!

Maude Apatow is just 14 years old, and though she’s appeared in some of her dad Judd’s movies, she’s not exactly a child star. She’s more focused on starting high school than starting a career—”It’ll be OK,” she predicts in a New York Times profile. “Hopefully.” But Maude’s observations on life as an adolescent speak to many, from normal kids her age to celebrities much older—she counts Girls‘ Lena Dunham and iconic author Judy Blume among her fans—and her astute, often hilarious tweets have scored her 67,000 Twitter followers. (And no, her dad doesn’t write her tweets, although he sometimes edits her grammar and the two often spar over Twitter. “It could not be more unhealthy,” says Apatow.) Read more…
Oh, Shirtless Paul Rudd. You are Shirtless Paul Rudd and you’re not even the best thing in this trailer. “This Is 40″ is the sort-of sequel to “Knocked Up,” about Paul and Debbie, the sister and brother-in-law of Katharine Heigl’s character. Now they’re 40 and feeling positively ancient. But they’re still got pot brownies, a gorgeous home, two great kids, and people in their lives like Megan Fox, Chris O’Dowd, and Jason Segel. Doesn’t sound too shabby to me. By all means, Leslie Mann, take 28. I’ll hand it over for half a pot brownie and a romp in the sack with your onscreen husband.
