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…
"I need some pooooon!"
The quintessential Judd Apatow film. I don't like most of his movies, but this one was only rarely annoying.
What a fun time.
It's a typical "Apatow"-Movie, but those aren't bad.
Steve Carrell is so funny, but Seth Rogan, Paul Rudd and Romany Malco do a good job as well.
ALl in all it's a very funny movie, it had lots of moments that made me laugh even though I was sick at the time.
The jokes are sexual but you could maybe think that by the name "40 year old VIRGIN".
There is not much more I can say about it, I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
feel bad for him
Man this is really enjoyable. Love it.
Unnecessarily long, but still consistently very funny.
A movie about a good, innocent guy surrounded by assholes who harrass him for being different and try to force him into things he isn't really comfortable with.
Regardless of what I'm doing, if I encounter The 40 Year Old Virgin giving anywhere, I will all but certainly watch it. For that reason, I've seen this film...a lot. But even despite that, I'll always be surprised just how many memorable scenes and wonderful moments are contained within this film. Certainly one of my all time favorites.
Steve Carrell proves himself to be an immensely likeable and relatable actor in this, his breakout film, the same year that he was cast as Michael Scott in The Office. Although the film is a little uneven and a little too long (Apatow Syndrome), it has more than enough to make it an enjoyable viewing experience with some decent chemistry between the gang of actors who play co-workers at an electrical retail store whose mission is to lose Carrell's character his virginity. Naturally their shallow endeavours are hamstrung and he ends up with divorced single mother and becomes a part of her family, winning of the children, going through a little bump before coming out triumphant and no longer a V.
The least indulgent, and thus best, of Apatow's filmography. Probably the most immediately influential comedy of the new millennium. It started the trend of overrelying on improv that not even Apatow seems to be able to control anymore, but works rather wonderfully here. When Jane Lynch tells Steve Carell about the Guatemalan man who took her virginity and proceeds to sing in Spanish, that's the kind of improv that I welcome in my movies.
Ten years after the fact, there is a lot of bro-ish and LGBT-phobic humor that hasn't aged well. The laughs of the first half of the movie seem particularly lazy, but once the Catherine Keener enters the picture and the movie becomes more of a romantic…
Steve Carell is one of my fave comedic actors, and this has to be my fave of all of his films :)
Great cast in general really though
