You may not have seen actress Leslie Mann's most flattering side yet: Her two most memorable roles are the drunken French toast craver who hits on Steve Carell in "The 40 Year Old Virgin" and Debbie, the "crazy chick in a pink dress snatching up babies" in "Knocked Up." In "This Is 40," however, out on DVD and Blu-ray Friday, Mann had the chance to reprise the latter role, showing the (somewhat) softer side of Debbie.
"This Is 40," directed by Mann's husband, Judd Apatow, focuses in on Debbie, Pete (Paul Rudd) and their daughters (Mann's real-life kids, Iris and Maude Apatow), who were relegated to side character status in "Knocked Up." The "sort-of sequel" to the 2007 hit, "This Is 40" catches up with Pete and Debbie as they grapple with the trials and tribulations of middle age.
