Full Screenplay For Judd Apatow’s This Is 40 Published Online, Officially

Curious about Judd Apatow‘s next? Curious enough to read the whole screenplay? Universal have added This is 40 to their For Your Consideration site, and a single click will net you a PDF of the full script. Members of the Academy, thr HFPA, would be screenwriters and writing students take note.

Of course, Apatow’s films are famous for their improvisations, hence the “Line-o-Rama” features on the Blu-rays and DVDs, but this script will at least give away all of the plot moves. And perhaps its even a transcript from the finished film? It’s not clear that it isn’t.

I didn’t read the whole thing yet. I stopped at

I don’t want a turbo penis. I like your medium soft one.

but I’m sure I’ll read the rest in bed tonight. Not because I want the movie spoiled top to bottom but because I love reading screenplays. I love the craft of screenwriting, and I love to see it on display. In fact, I enjoy the screenplay for a bad movie in a way I don’t ever really enjoy a bad movie, and a good movie? Great.
