They had supporting roles in "Knocked Up," but Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann get center stage as they reprise the characters in writer-director Judd Apatow's amusing comedy about reaching midllfe.
The couple aren't entirely happy about the situation, given the complications posed by their careers and their children. Jason Segel also returns from the first film in a cast that includes Melissa McCarthy, Megan Fox, John Lithgow, Albert Brooks and Lena Dunham ("Girls"). DVD extras: audio commentary by Apatow; deleted scenes; outtakes; music by Graham Parker and the Rumour, and Ryan Adams. *** (R: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
