I FUCKING LOVE COLOURING
The 40 Year Old Virgin
The longer you wait, the harder it gets.
Andy Stitzer has a pleasant life with a nice apartment and a job stamping invoices at an electronics store. But at age 40, there's one thing Andy hasn't done, and it's really bothering his sex-obsessed male co-workers: Andy is still a virgin. Determined to help Andy get laid, the guys make it their mission to de-virginize him. But it all seems hopeless until Andy meets small business owner Trish, a single mom.
I didn't even care if that guy got laid, I was just mad when he started selling all his awesome action figures.
"When your son is born.. Is he already on parol?"
Some great lines throughout due to a damn good cast who have excellent chemistry. What's funnier than seeing a guy with an erection pee all over himself? nothing.
Steve Carrell not only gives a star making, pitch perfect performance that makes the film so funny, but I can't imagine anyone else in the role. As perfect as he is, it's also the fantastic and hilarious supporting turns from the likes of Catherine Keener, Jane Lynch, Leslie Mann, and many others who make this so enjoyable. I'm not usually a fan of gross out raunchy humor, but every joke in this film had me laughing on hard on the floor. Each joke is timed so perfectly and executed even better. What separates this from most gross out comedies of the past is that the actors and writers put a lot of heart in to it and it really shows.
Film 5 on my Re-watch Wednesday List.
The 40 Year Old Virgin is one of the few comedies I feel comfortable rating 4 stars. I tend to rate comedies on a different scale in my head, and 3.5 stars is what I normally give ones that I find really funny. This film earns the extra half star not because it's really funny, (it is) but because there's a nice realistically funny story at the heart of it. I find it very refreshing to see an adult comedy that not only makes me laugh, but also tells a solid story. Most comedies are extremely lacking when it comes to plot and go for cheap laughs. That's not to say there aren't…
This film has become something of a time capsule for the mid Aughts. The film isn't exactly steeped in referential humor, but it's so imbued in its own time frame that it has become dated. Bookstores, pre-HD televisions, flip phones, and freakin' VHS tapes are still around, among other dated ideas. It's a film that exists on the edge of oblivion.
But it still works. It's still genuinely funny, and seems to exist from a time when most of these actors had yet to be typecast in pretty standard roles. Carell plays a pretty normal guy that isn't always overreacting to everything and only shouts when he's legitimately angry. Catherine Keener works surprisingly well with Judd Apatow's improvisational comedic style,…
Raunchy and hilarious but also really sweet and very heartfelt, "The 40 Year Old Virgin" isn't a great comedy by any means but I still really enjoyed watching it due to the extremely likeable cast and the well written screenplay.
Fun, light-hearted comedy with Carrell on top form.
I find myself apologizing for this movie and trying to justify it when thinking about reviewing it.
There is a lot of good material here, the premise and arc is unique enough to farm even more material, the cast is great and obviously very talented, and Apatow knows how to make movies, but in the end this is a very problematic and unfunny movie that meanders and has more fun than it probably should with some of the lines of humour it opts to go down.
It's really most interesting as a study to see where these guys all were ten years ago and how much they've all grown up and become so talented.
Damn, I remember watching this almost every night after school back in 2005/2006. This movie changed my whole personal landscape on the ideas of comedy. Improv on film could potentially yield great results when structured correctly. The days of slapstick heavy routines and 90's fart humor were basically second bill now. Judd Apatow decided to take things in a slightly more harrowing turn and is still somewhat the rage to this day. The tale of the world's latest bloomer was so realistic and down to earth, yet at the same time so very over the top and extreme when it had to be.
Giving Hollywood the likes of Seth Rogen, Kat Dennings, Elizabeth Banks and(for the sake of playing top…
This is the movie that started it all.
This launched the careers of Carell, Seth Rogen, and director Judd Apatow. It also changed the way comedy films were made and marketing. The Age of Apatow has begun.
I laugh every time!
I don't know why I hadn't watched this movie sooner, especially it has multiple great and hilarious actors/characters in it and we actually own the movie!
I literally knew nothing about this movie going into it- had never even seen the trailer, I just knew Steve Carell was in it (who I already thought was hilarious so I was just hoping the actual movie would be good). Luckily it was full of laughs and rememberable hilarious moments.
I was just in love with Steve Carell's hilarious super dorky awkward humor and all around being! I couldn't imagine anyone else playing his character, Andy. The side characters were a nice surprise of familiar faces, Cal played by Seth Rogan and David…
Admitting your a virgin at 40 is like saying you still rent movies from Blockbuster.
