Fearless, funny, sprawling, messy, vulgar and honest: those are just a few adjectives that describe Judd Apatow’s 'This Is 40'. The film earns its stripes as a raunchy, R-rated comedy even before the main title appears onscreen.

Moviegoers who expect another 'Bridesmaids' from this Judd Apatow-produced comedy are in for a surprise. Some of them may be disappointed with the lack of raucousness, but I was not: 'The Five-Year Engagement' is a strikingly original comedy with serious undertones.

When micro-indie filmmakers Jay and Mark Duplass spun their success with movies like 'The Puffy Chair' into an opportunity to work with full-scale crews and name actors, there were doubts that they could maintain their spontaneous approach and indie credibility. 'Cyrus' dispelled those feelings, and 'Jeff, Who Lives at Home' confirms their ability to make pictures that don’t look or sound like anyone else’s.

On my way to see this movie I kept saying to myself, “I hope they didn’t louse it up!” The Muppets mean too much to me to let Jason Segel, or anybody, for that matter, diminish them. The minute the picture started, I heaved a sigh of relief and broke out in a smile. This is a joyful movie, the kind the Muppets (and their many fans) deserve.
