Judd Apatow has made his directing career out of telling human stories that resonate with a lot of real emotion, while also being extremely funny comedies. He has a signature style that continues to shines through in his latest effort, This Is 40, which arrives on Blu-ray and DVD today, Friday, March 22nd.

This particular outing allowed him to once again work with his wife, Leslie Mann, and their two children Maude Apatow and Iris Apatow, in telling the continuing story of married couple Deb and Pete (Paul Rudd), whom we met in Judd Apatow's previous comedy Knocked Up.

Watch the Hilarious ‘This Is 40’ Blooper Reel!

A blooper reel is always a welcomed addition to any Blu-ray or DVD, because it gives us a glimpse inside the production, watching actors goofing around on the set and reacting to flubbed lines. Today, a gag reel has debuted for Judd Apatow's comedy This Is 40, even though it is still playing in theaters. This hilarious behind-the-scenes look shows Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann, Jason Segel, Megan Fox, Charlyne Yi, Melissa McCarthy, Chris O'Dowd, and even Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong screwing up their lines. Be warned, though, there is R-rated language peppered throughout this reel that will surely tickle your funny bone.

Last summer's Super 8 introduced us to a number of extremely talented child actors such as Joel Courtney, Zach Mills, Riley Griffiths, Gabriel Basso, and Ryan Lee.

The 16-year-old actor brings his comedic chops to the big screen once again this weekend in director Judd Apatow's This Is 40, debuting in theaters December 21. The actor portrays the young son of Melissa McCarthy's Catherine, and the love interest of Maude Apatow's Sadie. I recently had the chance to speak with the actor over the phone.
