Conclusion: Featuring a career-boosting performance from Steve Carell, 'The 40 Year Old Virgin' smashes genre walls and delivers a raunchy sex comedy that's as heartfelt as it is hilarious. As a Blu-ray release, the video and audio on this disc are nothing to write home about, but the package is a clear upgrade...
Excerpt: Andy Stitzer has gone 40 years without "doing it." Now his pals are making it their mission to help him score... fast! Can he survive their hilariously bad advice? Will he land in the arms of the way-too-experienced or the way-too-drunk?
Excerpt: I realize I'm in the minority when it comes to Judd Apatow's movies—I don't like them. Their pervasive sexual humor is anything but funny coming from sophomoric men in their 20s and 30s, and far too much attention is paid to Andy's coworkers instead of his relationship with Trish (Catherine Keener),...
Excerpt: Oh, there's something kinda-sorta ironic about the fact that my hundredth HD DVD review since the format's launch last year would be for The 40 Year Old Virgin . The 40 Year Old Virgin sounds like a one joke flick.
Excerpt: Andy Stitzer (Steve Carell) works in the stock room at an electronics store. He's a quiet, nerdy guy who's polite to his workmates but keeps himself to himself. His workmates - David (Paul Rudd), Jay (Romany Malco) and Cal (Seth Rogen) - are fine with that.
Excerpt: Steve Carell’s career has been growing like wildfire over the past few years. He first gained notoriety on “The Daily Show” as one of John Stewart’s roving reporters. From there he went on to UPS commercials… ok maybe that was a step in the wrong direction.
Excerpt: The generally winning, big-hearted Steve Carell vehicle The 40-Year-Old Virgin is funny and realistically romantic, but almost never at the same time. It's essentially two movies operating at cross purposes.
Excerpt: Andy Stitzer är en sanslöst nördig man i fyrtio års ålder vars dygd är lika orörd som en av hans actionfigurer som stått inne i en plastförpackning hela sitt liv. Men till skillnad från leksakerna har hans oskuld inte gjort att han ökat i värde.
Conclusion: Filmen: Regissören Judd Apatow ligger bakom några av de senaste årens bästa komedier men även några av de sämsta, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story till exempel. Supersugen och Knocked Up å andra sidan var riktigt knasroliga och samtidigt varma skildringar av de kvinnorädda kompisgängen.
