I was invited to Anderson Live talk show here in Manhattan Thursday, December 20, 2012 to be part of 40 year old audience members who were either turning 40 or already 40. I turned 40 in October yeah hard to believe but I was excited to attend and took my sister along for the day.
It started with a special screening of the comedy film “This Is 40″which was shown at the Loews Theater on 68th & Broadway at 8:00 a.m. Whoever attended the screening got priority to get into the talk show ahead of everyone else.
Some people said they couldn’t get up that early for a movie, or they had to take the kids to school. I told them they missed an amazing comedy and I couldn’t stop laughing.
“This Is 40” produced and written by John Apatow is the spinoff to the sequel Knocked Up (2007).
This film follows the lives of middle aged married couple Pete and Debbie as they face challenges of their lives. They are dealing with turning 40, their jobs, and children Sadie and Charlotte who add stress to their relationship.
It is R rated so if you’re not into foul language, and sexual content then you know what to do. I on the other hand enjoyed this film very much.
The cast includes :
Paul Rudd as Peter owner of record label
Leslie Mann as Debbie shop owner
Maude Apatow as Sadie 13 yr old daughter
Iris Apatow as Charlotte 8 yr old daughter John Lithgow as Oliver (Debbie’s 65 yr old father)
Albert Brooks as Larry (Pete’s father)
Megan Fox as Desi (one of Debbie’s employee)
Charlyne Yi as Jodi (one of Debbie’s employee)
The other cast members are very funny as well. Charlyne Yi who played Jodi is crazy and played her character very well. She’s funny.
Everyone is mesmerized with Megan Fox character. I wonder why. Lol. You will see. Everyone that was in the movie did a terrific job and I couldn’t see anyone else playing their parts. Of course John knew what he was doing when he picked his wife Leslie and two daughters Maude, and Iris to play the daughters in the film.
I was excited to get to the studio and see Anderson of course but also some of the cast in person.
John Apatow, Leslie Mann, and Paul Rudd, were on the show. Leslie was Anderson’s co host. John and Leslie’s two daughters who were stars in the film were in the audience as well.
The movie comes out today Friday December 21, 2012. Yes the world stayed around for you to see this movie, and the taping of Anderson Live comes on today at 12:00 on Fox5. They might show me in the audience.
Since this was Anderson’s last show for the season we were given $100 Visa cards, snow for the kids from Misfit toys, and a CD.
My sister and I had a great day and I recommend seeing this movie and requesting tickets to Anderson Live next season.
Enjoy the pictures below from movie theater and talk show.
I also was a Tweeter throughout the show and a lot of my tweets were favorites of Anderson Live. #AndersonLiveTweetSeats
