Knocked Up Sequel Trailer

This Is 40 Trailer: Does It Look Depressing or Funny?

When the first trailer for This Is 40 dropped, I was disheartened by the focus on how horrible it is to grow old. I was expecting it to be more lighthearted, since it's Judd Apatow's "sort-of sequel" to Knocked Up. This new trailer is funnier, with more of the family dynamic (I love seeing Maude Apatow as now-preteen Sadie). However, it's not all jokes; for example, Debbie and Pete (Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd) both talk about killing each other and generally nag at each other. The tagline of "This is everyone's story" implies that its sentiments are universal, and maybe they are, but for me it feels awfully glass-half-empty. Still, I'm excited to see it because I love Rudd so much — not to mention the supporting players we see here, like Jason Segel and Chris O'Dowd. I'm curious about how everyone else feels though — is this trailer hilarious or depressing?

It's appalling. Paul Rudd and Chris O'Dowd deserve better roles!

I cannot relate to this at all.  It's kind of funny and kind of sad at the same time.  I do like Paul Rudd, though.

I don't really get the intro. Is he saying he wants to die? Or that he wants a divorce? Confused.
