Maybe if you're a 12 year old boy you might like the dim-witted so not-funny humor, but it was an absolute insult to anyone who has a hint of intelligence. I went in thinking this movie was going to be total crap, and I was very surprised. However, if you are easily offended, do not see this movie. Surely, if anyone can go through the things Andy does and still have the strength to attract a woman as sexy as Catherine Keener, then it's true: It is never too late! Sorry, two thumbs down here. In addition, I found some parts of the film actually pretty touching as Andy finds himself developing both romantic relationships and friendships perhaps for the first time in his life. The main fault I'd have to find with this film is it's dreadful writing.
It's funny every 30 seconds. I thought every scene was like a bad Saturday Night Live sketch - not very funny to begin with, and stretched out beyond all rational thought. And thank you, no matter what, even if you think you are one of those hip parents do not take your kids to this movie. Because it wasn't even remotely funny. Does The 40 Year Old Virgin fit into this guild? The truth is, Andy loves women, but past traumatic experiences revealed hilariously one after the other in a flashback sequence have put him on the sidelines for good.
. Instead I got a smart, surprisingly original movie about a decent, average guy who just never had sex. There's also a strong current of misogyny which became increasingly hard to stomach as the film went on. Kal is clearly a sexual pervert but yet he seems to get what he wants with the opposite genre. According to him, he just let some of the guys particularly Rogen and Malco improv and talk the way they normally talk, all in an effort to find lots of new ways to be dirty. The 40-Year-Old Virgin 2005 The 40-Year-Old Virgin : Andy at the age of 40 still hasn't had sex. A world where it seems okay for a boss to sexually harass her underlings.
Occasionally a bit of random, absurd humor would pop in, which was good, but it was mostly relying on cheap humor tricks that got old after the first 15 minutes, for me. Steve Carell is terrific, but like The Office the supporting cast really makes the film work. Some of the humor is crude gross out stuff, but most of it is just well done intelligent comedy. I think that Seth Rogen should be getting more work, because he so freaking talented and engaging. Paul Rudd is hilarious as always. Steve Carell movie can have a chance to prove himself, to steal the attention, as well as Jim Carrey in Bruce Almighty and Will Ferrell Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgendy his films. After the revealing all his friends are on a mission to help get him laid.
What is wrong with not having sex if that is your choice? David, Jay, and Cal each embark on a mission to get Andy laid, so help them all. But if you're willing not to get offended by it, there's more where that came from. But it's clear that all three have a certain respect for the decent human being that Andy is, and they resolve to help him out by assisting him in ending his virginity. Three of us went: two men, one woman that would be me. And is nothing private anymore? I find that subtle, clever humor is much more entertaining than about 200 uses of the f-word or fratboy sex discussions. Now here's the real novelty with this picture: it does the impossible task of actually dealing with its subject matter in a cute, mature fashion.
As the title suggests, Andy is the 40 year old who is like the nice guy friend with still a little Pee-Wee Herman in him the opening over the credits of his his apartment is hilarious, a good sign. Along the way Andy meets a nice mom: Trish who fall head over heels for each other. A world where it's really funny to go drunk driving and smash into other peoples' cars. And Jay, a man in a relationship which seems to be affected by his continuous cheating and getting caught acts. There are some painfully funny moments in the movie, but I probably blushed about as much as I laughed. Like I said, there are some absolutely hysterical moments here, but you have to ask yourself if they're worth sitting through one of the most vulgar movies you're likely to ever see at the theater.
Too many past bad experiences have dampened his enthusiasm to the point that he avoids women completely. No wit, no charm, no humour. He lets his secret slip at a poker game with his buds from work. Going in to the sneak preview, knowing nothing about the movie except for the one trailer I'd seen, I thought it was going to be a Dude Where's My Car kind of crap fest. Storyline: The 40 Year Old Virgin.
And the romantic elements were completely contrived, particularly the scene where Keener finds porn in Carell's apartment. There were parts of comedic genius in this movie. Something about the 40 Year Old Virgin and the other comedy hit of the summer, Wedding Crashers, is similar, but they are two different films in some respects. Immediately, you know it's going to be about some guy who reaching his 40th birthday without having had sex will be pressured or helped by his friends to go out and get some. In the title role we have the comedy sensation of recent years, Steve Carell, who entered the Comedy Stratosphere with Bruce Almighty.
