The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005)


Sex isn’t love; that is what I think the theme of this film is! So very,very funny! This film has a few brilliant moments, a bunch of very funny moments and is generally funny through out. Gets a little “Hollywood” at a few points but each time it does, boom they hit you with one of those thigh slapping moments to bring you back!
The idea alone gave me brain knots, I mean how can anyone go so long without even having, lets say bad sex or severely awkward sex? "40 Year Old Virgin" brought the concept around and made it seem plausible!
This film also has something that is rarely seen in films of this genre, a genuine heart. Between the guys at work becoming a lonely man’s confidants and friends and his search for real love, “The 40 Year Old Virgin” delivers on all fronts.

Steve Carell was perfectly cast in this role, a geek with a good heart. A man desperate to fit in, but so shy that he doesn’t try until pushed.

If you like situation comedy, you will flat out love “The 40 Year Old Virgin”!

The Plot:

40-year-old Andy Stitzer has done quite a few things in his life. He's got a cushy job stamping invoices at an electronics superstore, a nice apartment with a proud collection of action figures and comic books, good friends, a nice attitude. But there's just one little thing he hasn't quite gotten around to doing yet--something most people have done by his age. Done a lot. Andy's never, ever, ever had sex--not even by accident. So is that such a big deal? Well, for Andy's buds at the store, it sure is. Although they think he's a bit of an oddball, there's certainly a planet full of stranger (and homelier) guys who've at least had one go at having a go. They consider it their duty to help Andy out of his dire situation and go to great lengths to help him. But nothing proves effective enough to lure their friend out of lifelong chastity until he meets Trish (Catherine Keener), a 40-year-old mother of three. Andy's friends are psyched by the possibility that "it" may finally happen...until they hear that Andy and Trish have begun their relationship based on a mutual no-sex policy.
