The Screenplay to Judd Apatow’s ‘This is 40’ Is Online and It’s Really Long
Universal has posted the entire screenplay to Judd Apatow’s upcoming movie This is 40 on its “For Your Consideration” awards site (via Bleeding Cool). You can click open a full PDF of the massive, 146-page script here. Some clips from Jon Brion’s score for the film are also available on the site. Apatow’s movies are known for leaning heavily on improvisation, so most of the jokes in the script will probably be different from those in the final version, but the story’s the same so you should probably avoid reading the script if you don’t want to completely spoil the movie for yourself. It comes out December 21st, so only read it if two months is too long of a wait for you. The movie’s runtime was also just announced. It’s 134 minutes-long, putting it, right in between Apatow’s last movies, Funny People (146 min.) and Knocked Up (129 min.). So, this December, expect people to complain about This is 40 being too long more than they did with Knocked Up and less than they did with Funny People.
