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,…
Happy tenth birthday, The 40-Year-Old Virgin! Just think. In another 30 years, you can have sex!
Always makes me laugh.
With its all-star cast it comes as no surprise that “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” is a hilarious film, that is to be expected, but what is surprising is how well is works as a drama and love story. Unlike most comedies that go for laughs for first two acts and then try to inject heartfelt emotion into the third act, “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” intertwines comedy and drama throughout its runtime. By doing this I was not only laughing constantly, but also felt emotionally invested in the story throughout the film.
The film is centered around a group a coworkers that take it upon themselves to get Andy (Steve Carell) laid after they find out he is a virgin. While it might…
Andy is a 40 year old guy that works in the stock room of an electronic store, likes action figures, playing online poker, and oh by the way he is a virgin. As his buddies increasingly pressure him to "do the deed" he meets a woman who he begins to fall for. Now Andy has to hope that "if you don't use it you lose it" isn't really true. Sometimes the right person is more than worth the wait.
Talk about a talented cast just ready to take the world by storm. Carell, Rudd, Rogen, Lynch and more all were right on point. This has so many one liners that have become just a apart of everyday life. The message…
One of my favourite comedy films ever!
One of the few Apatow movies that doesn't feel overlong, despite running for over two hours, this benefits from some great lead performances (Carell, Keener, Rudd, Rogen, etc), a nice ability to bounce around between hilarious and sweet, and a fun, superfluous, musical number to end everything.
It could still do with being trimmed, 20 minutes could easily be lopped off, but that is easy to forget when you're enjoying lines delivered like the following from Jane Lynch: "I'm very discreet, but I'll haunt your dreams."
Kept me laughing. The bit with the body wax nearly made me fall out of bed.
Ma perché dura 2 ore e un quarto?
(Edit: ah, perché a quanto pare si netflix c'è la super necessaria e imperdibile "director's cut")
This movie is freakin' hilarious.
2nd watch - 4 star

Expected a stupid unfunny comedy, instead I got a pretty good movie.
