    Synopsis


    The 40-Year-Old Virgin
    One man nervously ventures forth into the final frontier in this comedy starring comic actor Steve Carell. Andy Stitzer (Carell) is a cheerfully geeky guy who is settling into middle age with his large collection of comic books, action figures, and collectable models. Andy works in an electronics store, and seems reasonably happy with his life. However, one day his friends and co-workers David (Paul Rudd), Jay (Romany Malco), and Cal (Seth Rogen) discover that Andy has a secret -- due to his rather severe jitters around women, Andy is still a virgin. Andy's pals are appalled at this state of affairs, and set out to find a woman who'd be willing to get horizontal with him. After a number of disastrous dates, everyone thinks Andy has finally struck gold when he meets Trish (Catherine Keener), an attractive single mother who takes an immediate liking to him. What the other guys don't know is that Trish has just gotten out of a bad relationship, and has informed Andy she isn't ready to be intimate with him just yet. The 40-Year-Old Virgin was the first feature film directed by Judd Apatow, who previously served as a writer and producer for the well-regarded television shows Freaks and Geeks, Undeclared, and The Larry Sanders Show. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      A hilarious, heartwarming comedy

      The 40-Year-Old Virgin was the start of a strange phenomenon a few years ago that has continued through the films of Judd Apatow, Seth Rogen, and the rest of their group: a series of crude, well-written, frequently male-dominated comedies that carry positive message about friendship and male bonding. I've never seen anything like these films, because they somehow manage to never let convention bog them down, but rather use it to create a whole new level of comedy and human experience, usually related to relationships and how they develop, fall apart, of somehow hover in balance. This film is about Andy Stitzer, a middle-aged electronics store employee who still lives a sort of teenage fantasy life, but is also completely alone. Upon finally reaching out to him, his co-workers learn that he is still a virgin, and thus they make it their mission to change that fact at pretty much any cost. The film really exploits the perils of dating and having forgotten how to survive in the dating world to great effect, but the real asset of the film is its humanity, particularly in the character of Andy, played memorably by Steve Carrel in a star-making role. Andy is an innocent and a good man who has merely forgotten what it is to try to stop being alone. His co-workers, though crude and at times a bit too obsessive about his "condition" really do want to help him, and because of that fact, Andy finds the courage to both develop a strong friendship with them and a romantic connection with a nearby store owner, played by a charming Catherine Keener. I really recommend this film. Be warned that the humor does venture into very risque territory, but beneath its crude exterior lies a heart of gold. And a lot of laughs.

      This could easily have been another lowbrow copulation comedy. However, it's much better than that. Steve Carell (also a co-writer) does a fine job of making Andy into a sympathetic character. Indeed, I easily identified with his motivations and actions: the bad experiences that led him to forsake dating, his escape into fantasy, and even the mundane activities he uses to fill his solitary life. Andy's friends are also intriguing because they represent flawed approaches to women. David (Paul Rudd) is obsessed with a gal who dumped him years ago, Cal (Seth Rogan) objectifies females, and the serial cheater Jay (Romany Malco) can't commit to his longsuffering girlfriend.

      This film, along w Liar Liar, Fast Times RH, Jerk, Fletch, Billy Madison & Happy Gilmore, is just a re-issued film w a new-look cover. 40 Yr Old Virgin's original BR release was not best I've ever seen, so I bought the 2016 release hoping it was a new release w new improved sound & picture quality. Needless to say, I was disappointed because I wasted $$ on something I already had. Not a single change was made to the overall quality of movie. Even the disc itself was exactly same as original release. I basically paid $7.99 for a new cover photo...which is almost identical to original w only difference being the picture of Steve Carrell is bigger and zoomed-in.

      I kept hearing about how good this movie was and read all the reviews and finally I said, "All right all right, I'll check it out!" Let me tell you, the previews didn't do this movie any justice. This movie was so funny that my stomach was in so much pain afterward from all the laughing. This was definitely one of those movies that caught me by surprise at how over the top it was with its humor. Andy has to be the text book example of a true 40 year old virgin and watching him trying to remedy this problem is just way too funny....mainly because of what his co-workers at Smart Tech put him through. If you purchase this movie, you won't be sorry as it's one of those movies you can watch over and over again.

      If you have a good sense of humor then this is a great movie for you. It has adult themes so the right audience is required. It is funny to watch a man in his 40s have a very simple life of collecting action figures and even funnier seeing him act like a teenager when he becomes interested in a woman his age. Seeing an inexperienced man taking advice from a bunch of guys that don't have their lives together is hilarious and it only gets better when Steve Carrell tries to work on a relationship with a mother of two. Great buy and fun to watch over and over.

      There's no way I can be sad/depressed watching this movie. Steve does a phenomenal job as the 40-year old virgin. From his job at the stereo store to his visit to the local Planned Parenthood to his infamous waxing scene (which was really done), his reactions and commentary are dead on and make for a movie that provides laugh after laugh, while still telling a relatively "cute" story. Perfect for a date movie...boys and girls alike will like it.

      Good comedy

      This is a good mainstream comedy. While it does not live up to Apatow's television work, it does have a heart of its own. The comedy does seem to be placed in the beginning so that it can then be more dramatic at the end, but what comedy doesn't do that anymore? Overall, this film certainly seems like it's worth owning because it is a good movie to watch when you just don't feel like thinking.

      Excellent movie! Very very funny! Laugh out loud funny. Make sure you do not get the unrated version which lengthens the movie but really doesn't add any value to the movie. At the humor can be "over the top" (crude and/or vulgar -- but darn funny). You don't want to watch this with your parents... I highly recommend this movie for adults who like to laugh.
