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.
A movie, which contains all the basic jokes you would expect it to have, given the title. The thing is, very few of these jokes are actually funny. Sure some of them get a chuckle or two out of you, but you're not actually that amused while watching this movie. Plus the characters are extremely inconsistent - the laid-back lady's man is suddenly a neurotic wreck who clings on to his ex, a confident lady's man is suddenly insecure and the biggest jerk of the movie is suddenly the voice of wisdom... I mean what the hell? In a good comedy this kind of randomness might actually be hilarious, but in this it's just increasingly annoying. And while the movie offers some words of wisdom about its subject, it's really just a screwball comedy with nothing new to offer. Plus the main character's nerdness feels extremely forced.
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!"
Pussy ain't worth selling OG action figures over, man.
It may be stupid but I still love this. Holds up surprisingly well thanks to a fantastic cast.
Virginity. In some cultures and times it’s the sign of holy innocence. In this society it’s a stigma and something you should be ashamed about. And when you’re an adult man, like Andy Stitzer, it’s hopeless. As a 40-year old, he is a normal, introvert man who just stopped trying and is okay with his sexless life. But his co-workers feel sorry for him and want him to find a woman. Those colleagues all have very unhealthy love lives themselves. David is still depressed after breaking up with his ex two years ago, player Jay is actually very insecure and Cal has a freaky sexual preference. Although they keep giving Andy advice, he manages to find a woman who likes…
More intelligent and heartfelt then most frat bro comedies but I wish an editor would've been allowed to do their job in this one.
In recent years Judd Apatow's brand of point and shoot improvisational comedy filming has started have diminishing returns of enjoyment. However, The 40 Year Virgin acts as a reminder as to why I fell in love with the Apatow gang in the first place. The sharp and often gratuitous humour of this film is centered around an earnest emotional core, and that acts to raise the movie up. The movie has all the penis jokes and gross out gags that are expected of this type of movie, but Andy (Carell) is a sweet character and the relationships he builds feel real. Overall, The 40 Year Virgin is a really satisfying and endearing R rated comedy.
Film à la fois attendu et inattendu.
Tout à fait attendu du coté des blagues un peu lourde, d'un peu de misogynie, du fait que Steve Carell soit (encore une fois) très bon. C'est aussi un peu naïf, un peu fleur bleue et vraiment dommage qu'il n'y ait pas un traitement un peu plus en profondeur.
Totalement inattendu de voir Conrad de la série Weeds, Seth Rogen "mince" et Jonah Hill gros (les débuts de la fameuse bande). La production Apatow qui fait que l'humour, les images, le montage et la musique ont un certain cachet. C'est aussi parfois très drôle( la scène avec la conductrice complètement bourrée) et on a perdu l'habitude d'avoir une époque où les geeks ne sont pas cool.
Bon moment de détente, je m'attendais à pire.
oh boy the pain
This was on TV.
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
