Of all the relationships that Judd Apatow has forged in his career, one of the most enduring personally and professionally has been with Ben Stiller. He was a writer on "The Ben Stiller Show," and as both their stars began to rise, they found space to work together time and again, with Stiller memorably popping up in everything from "Freaks & Geeks" to "Anchorman," while Apatow produced "The Cable Guy," which starred and was directed by the comic actor. But perhaps their most interesting time together was on something that never came to pass.

After the comprehensive onslaught of attributed projects for which his name lies above the title, it then remains a rare and welcome sight to see Judd Apatow return for his fourth directorial effort, “This is 40.” Last seen in 2009 with “Funny People,” Apatow has now expanded his cinematic universe with his latest film to focus on Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann), two supporting characters from “Knocked Up” who return saddled with a host of unexplored issues.

The messiness of family and all its glory is front and center in Judd Apatow's upcoming dramedy, "This Is 40." The "sort-of sequel" to 2007's "Knocked Up," this more grown-up comedy expands on the family in the film played by Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann and the kids Maude and Iris Apatow. ''People really responded to Pete and Debbie, and I thought it would be fun to see where they are now,'' Apatow told EW recently. ''I come from television, so I want there to be 80 episodes of everything.''

It seems Judd Apatow is revisting his past this fall. His upcoming "This Is 40" plucks two characters from 2007's "Knocked Up" and refreshes them with a new tale, and it looks like something he wrote two decades ago is getting a fresh coat of paint.

Now showing for critics, and with screeners already in the hands of various guilds and groups, Judd Apatow's "This Is 40" is officially out of the gate, and the early buzz seems to be positive.

It's already been revealed that the soundtrack for Judd Apatow's "This is 40" -- his sort-of-sequel to "Knocked Up" -- will feature another choice selections of cuts, including songs by Yoko Ono, Paul McCartney, Avett Brothers, Loudon Wainwright and more. But even more appealing is the fact that there are four artists who contributed new songs to the film's soundtrack, including Fiona Apple, Norah Jones, Graham Parker (who cameos in the film), and Lindsey Buckingham; all produced by the film's composer Jon Brion (Wilco and Ryan Adams also contribute new/live versions of previously known songs). It's a bit of a Dad-rock mix, but hell, it fits the material, and these kind of song selections served the tone for "Knocked Up" and Apatow's previous film "Funny People" extremely well.

In case you're living under a rock, you likely know that Judd Apatow's latest dramedy, "This is 40," is a type of spin-off or follow-up to his 2007 comedy, "Knocked Up." To recap: Ben (Seth Rogen) and Alison (Katherine Heigl) are the leads of "Knocked Up" and "This Is 40" centers on two of the supporting characters of that film, Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Leslie Mann) -- Debbie being Alison's older sister in the film. Got that?
