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.

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!
An embarrassingly bad plot.
This movie is a stoned masterpiece! Its as stoned as 2001 : A Space Odyssey or Drive or Stalker. Its the 2001 of comedy movies. I mean look at those crazy lines man this movie has tonnes and tonnes of such lines. Steve Carell's performance is on Marlon Brando level of comic timing man, the guy nailed it on & on. He acted like he was born for this role. I mean there are few cliches but it doesnt matter when there is such genuine stuff happening on the screen which evokes such moving laughter. We come across hilarious stuff that evokes laughter but this is the kind of stuff that moves you as it makes you laugh. You can literally…
Less of an Apatow movie and more of Steve Carell's thing. Still find it super funny.
Probably my favorite of the Apatow directed catalog. The writing is really sharp and the supporting cast is perfect.
Also, it gave me a new appreciation for Michael MacDonald! Yah Mo Be There!
Still holds up. Clearly Apatow's best film (even though it is, like everything else he's ever done, about twenty minutes too long). Unlike many other comedies that rely on the improvisational skills of their casts, by my calculation, the vast majority of the jokes riffed here land.
I think this is a film that seems a lot more special before you watch it, then when you finish it. It is off the wall funny, yes, but I don't really think it was anything more. I can give it credit for keeping the plot simple, and having funny and interesting characters, but I didn't really find it particularly special, or any different than any of the other comedies from Seth Rogen or Judd Apatow.
i think this was the first steve carell movie i saw

I could not for the life of me take my eyes off Paul Rudd whenever he was on screen. my god do I love his stupid adorable face. it's a pretty funny movie but I felt a lot of secondhand embarrassment and that always makes me uncomfortable. well most of the jokes were still good and hit for me. romcoms don't really set you up for a twist or something so I knew what I was getting into and predicted two thirds of the story within the first 15 minutes. also Andy was quite relatable cause I too prefer to sit at home with my collected merch and read instead of going out. hate bicycles tho.
