“This Is 40” + Fit at 40 Blu-ray Giveaway
I remember how excited I was when I was younger for each birthday that came. It was a time to have fun with family and friends, open presents and eat cake and ice cream. Not that I’m almost 34 (oh my gosh – did I really just say that without having to calculate in my head?), birthdays are getting a little scarier. I know that with the upcoming changes in age will come major changes in life. Ya know, like menopause, wrinkles, grey hair (oh wait I already have that), among other things.
That being said, I found the movie, This Is 40, even funnier! I mean, I have never lied about my age or made everyone celebrate the same age year after year, but I totally got where Pete and Debbie were coming from. This made the movie even funnier! I am actually planning on have a Girl’s Night In, where we’ll watch This Is 40, eat goodies, drink wine, and laugh together! Have you seen This Is 40 yet?
This Is 40 is now available in the Blu-ray Combo Pack with the Unrated Version, DVD, Digital Copy and Ultraviolet. A midlife milestone sends a long-married couple into an uproarious tailspin in This Is 40. Audiences fell in love with contentiously loving couple Pete and Debbie in Judd Apatow’s comedy sensation Knocked Up. Five years later, Apatow reunites with his hilarious creations as Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann reprise their roles as husband and wife balancing the challenges and rewards of marriage and parenthood with the milestone of turning 40.

Forty-five minutes of cardio five days a week is just enough to help keep you looking fit and fabulous in your forties.
