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.
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.
"I need some pooooon!"
Having seen it about five times now, I still can't get over that random yet utterly hilarious ending.
I couldn't go to sleep with Requiem for a Dream still in my mind, so I decided I'd watch this.
There were 4 of us in my house on Sunday afternoon and between us we couldn't decide on a single movie in my Blu-ray collection that we all wanted to watch. I wanted Inglorious Basterds or Snatch, my girlfriend got to the point where she no longer cared (in actual fact, she wanted to watch The Notebook) and my two other friends couldn't decide.
We had reached the stage where we were going to write our names and one film on a piece of paper and put them in a hat (yes, really) when one of my friends suggested 'The 40 Year Old Virgin'. All of a sudden, things clicked into place and we all agreed! Hurrah!
I personally love…
Despite the jokes falling flat sometimes, and even if it's surely foreseeable along the way, The 40 Year-Old Virgin is a hilarious ride from start to finish thanks to its wonderful comedic cast and a hilarious, fresh, energetic, and witty script. There are some really quotable lines here, with some really impressive and natural back-and-forth between the characters. I'm actually proud to say that it's Apatow's best work.
Judd Apatow consigue realizar una visión sobre una sociedad centrada en el sexo y todo lo que ello conlleva. Apatow sabe profundizar con su comedia pero su comedia no consigue abandonar esa sensación burda, sucia y sin gracia. Aún haciendo algún chiste divertido, es más interesante el drama que la comedia. Por suerte, tiene algo que decir, algo raro en la comedia actual americana.
Despite the traditional rom-com cliches (including my personal most hated, "third-act misunderstanding"), this is a smart and hilarious comedy with an absurdly perfect ending.
The 40 Year-Old Virgin is a hilarious film featuring Steve Caroll as the hapless virgin. His friends played by Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd and Romany Malco learn of Caroll's "affliction" and take it upon themselves to help him lose it. The movie features a geniunly funny and original story. Packed with star cameos and new faces from the hilarious Leslie Mann to a very young Jonah Hill. Director Judd Apatow finds a perfect balance between social commentary with this movie.
Plenty of laughs in this one.
Appatow's best movie.
A very funny and heartfelt comedy about a 40-year old virgin trying to find love with the help of some guys as it features a breakthrough performance from Steve Carell and one of the most infamous scenes involving wax... "KELLY CLARKSON!!!!"
A good premise that is well executed. Steve Carell is very endearing and likable with good buddy support from Paul Rudd, Romany Malco and Seth Rogen.
For a Judd Apatow film, it deals with the titular issue far more delicately that one would expect. A heartwarming tale and a decent comedy.
This one was new to me as well, and it was pretty damn funny. Carrell was great not taking his character into freakiness, but true earnestness without losing its funny. The supporting cast was great, especially Seth Rogen.
