This Is 40
A.k.a. "Judd Apatow's Midlife-Crisis Mixtape." The director's quasi-autobiographical film about lurching into your fifth decade has a fitting soundtrack – mostly singer-songwriters, mostly dudes, kind of fuddy-duddy. It's as carefully curated as a Wes Anderson soundtrack, from the chestnuts (Paul McCartney's "Lunch Box/Old Sox") to the few originals (Fiona Apple's sprightly but vicious "Dull Tool"). Top billing goes to Seventies star Graham Parker, who gets two new songs and plays himself in the movie.
