Dramedy: A married couple must contend with various issues, big and small, that threaten to tear apart their marriage.
Pete (PAUL RUDD) and Debbie (LESLIE MANN) have been married for more than a decade and have two daughters, 13-year-old Sadie (MAUDE APATOW) and 8-year-old Charlotte (IRIS APATOW). They would seem to have it all in their nicely appointed southern California home, but there are problems bubbling beneath the surface, ready to erupt at any moment.

Pete runs his own small record label with two employees -- Ronnie (CHRIS O'DOWD) and Cat (LENA DUNHAM) -- and desperately wants to sell a lot of albums for music veteran Graham Parker (GRAHAM PARKER). That's not only because he loves the music, but he also needs the money to avoid having to sell their house. One of the places their funds go is to Pete's remarried father, Larry (ALBERT BROOKS), who needs the cash to support his wife and their three young triplets.

Debbie -- who runs a small clothing boutique with employees Desi (MEGAN FOX) and Jodi (CHARLYNE YI) -- has her own daddy issues in that her surgeon father, Oliver (JOHN LITHGOW), hasn't been around much in her life, but she's trying to change that. She's also trying to change Pete's eating habits -- due to her trying to get into shape through physical trainer Jason (JASON SEGEL) -- but that's nagging he doesn't appreciate, much like his reaction to her being upset about him using Viagra. As a result, he often goes off for long bike rides with his friend, Barry (ROBERT SMIGEL), when not retreating to the bathroom for time away from Debbie and their kids.

With both of their 40th birthdays approaching, Pete and Debbie let their various issues, big and small, finally get the best of them, resulting in increasing unrest and disrespect between them. As the big birthday party approaches, it's unclear if they'll still be together by the time that rolls around.

Those who are fans of anyone in the cast and/or films by Judd Apatow might be interested in it (mostly likely older teens).

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
