21. "This is Forty"
In theaters: December 21, 2012
Director: Judd Apatow
Cast: Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, Megan Fox, Jason Segel, Melissa McCarthy, Chris O'Dowd, John Lithgow, Albert Brooks, Lena Dunham, Annie Mumolo, Robert Smigel, Phil Hendrie
Lowdown: A not-quite-sequel to "Knocked Up" sees the return of the married couple (Rudd and Mann) who were supporting players in that film, with no sign of the characters played by Seth Rogen and Katherine Heigl.
Drew McWeeny says: The title pretty much casts a big wide net, and the chance to watch this group return, tackling marriage and aging and thwarted ambition, while introducing heavy hitters like Lithgow and Brooks into things? Wouldn't miss it. Besides, it's been too long since "Funny People."
