Like being forced to watch your "zany - hip" friends' home movies, except no one thinks they're "zany" or "hip." These labels were self applied because gosh darn it....their lives are just so crazy kooky and interesting sometimes! At the one hour mark you're desperately trying to escape their living room, but: "Wait! A really funny part is coming up!" At 90 minutes: "You have to see what our daughter said here! You won't believe how wise she is. And she's only eight!" At two hours they start offering up deep insights like: "Men use the bathroom to hide from the family!" "Teenagers spend to much darn time on the internet and texting! Am I right people or what?!" Then at two hours and thirteen minutes their camcorder battery finally...mercifully....dies....and before they can get the spare one from the closet.... everyone bolts for the door. Watching "This is 40" was like that. We don't hate these people, they are our friends after all...but no one finds them, their kids or their lives half as interesting as they do. Thankfully in the real world most of these couple can't afford to release their home movies nation wide like Apatow can.
