The 40 Year Old Virgin back to product details

E-Bay meets Circuit City

This movie is the best comedy I have seen in some time. Some of the language is rather crude but most of the time it is spoken by crude people. The dream scenes are super good.
All in all this movie will be good exercise because you will be internally jogging by laughing and chuckling so much

Let's Hear It for the Virgins!

What's most wonderful about THE 40-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN? Its surprising lack of the usual "Saturday Night Live" ironic distancing. The characters are more kind and sweet--if a bit on the dumb side--than they are smarmy, nasty or stupid. And so we come to care about them all, not just Carell's and Keener's (both quite nicely written and performed) but even the supporting dimwits who work at the Circuit City clone (Paul Rudd is, as always, first-class).

It does rather amaze me that the movie grossed over $100,000, given that its so-silly and so-spectacular ending is right out of the 60s/70s--a time during which the young audience that made this film a hit were running around in diapers (or were not even a gleam in their pre-teen parents' eyes). What could they have made of that finale?! Whatever: this movie--which offers a lovely take on sex that kids might learn from--is a lark and a charmer, so grin and giggle to your heart's content.

By the by, the "unrated" version adds something like 17 minutes and runs two-and-one-quarter hours. When I noticed the length, I thought, "Mistake: Comedy should be short and sweet." But then I watched--and wasn't bored for more than a minute or two.
