Want a sneak peek at This Is 40, Judd Apatow’s upcoming semi-sequel to Knocked Up? You could watch the film’s nearly three-minute-long trailer… or you could just go to Universal’s special awards season website, which is currently hosting a PDF of the movie’s full screenplay. The page also has subsections devoted to Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, Snow White and the Huntsman, Ted, and Les Miserables. Every one of them includes a screenplay, except for Les Mis.
That makes sense; while the first three films have already been released, Tom Hooper’s musical won’t hit theaters until Christmas Day. But This Is 40 also isn’t getting released until December – making the studio’s decision to post its screenplay seem curious, at the very least. Then again, it’s likely that the film’s actual dialogue varies greatly from what’s on the page; Apatow is known for encouraging his actors to improvise.
In any case: The curious and impatient can find a PDF of the script here. It is, of course, NSFW, although there are no images to go with its descriptions of Viagra-fueled sex and gynecological visits.
