The 40 Year Old Virgin Reviews

Page 2 of 2192
February 2, 2012
Steve Carell is so likable as the titular geek in this laugh-out-loud sex comedy filled with honesty and tenderness. The 40 Year-Old Virgin is realistically funny, insightful, and heartwarming.
July 23, 2014
hilarious scenes, carell is the best
July 22, 2014
Steve Carell proves his leading man quality at a raunchy and believable comedy with countless awkward and hysterical situations.
July 14, 2012
Apatow's directorial debut is full of clever dialogue, raunchy humor, and unexpected sincerity.
July 20, 2014
Simply hilarious. But not too fascinating when you care enough about the story line and pictures as you watch it for more than two hours.
March 25, 2008
Chalk full of classic one liners and amazing comedic performances from just about the entire cast and crew, Judd Apatow's undeniably quirky story of a literal, 40 year old virgin has many great moments and is one of the truest and funniest films in a long time. Not shy, yet not cruel, this story of a man and his virginity is a great romp; although a bit long, it is certainly a comedy you won't want to miss.

I just got bored by it half way through
July 16, 2014
Much better than I expected.
June 11, 2014
I love Steve Carrell, but this film was a bit too long and parts too repetitive, so that the deadpan humor was a little too much and hard to take. With some good editing and cutting, it could be a lot funnier and better.
July 6, 2014
It's charming and Steve Carell is rather likeable in his breakthrough role. The film can't completely sweep up some of the crude humor under the rug, but there is enough here to balance it out and give it heart.
June 29, 2014
I never had a desire to see this film because I was disappointed by Apatow's Forgetting Sarah Marshall and never forgave him for that. I just found that movie sexist and lewd, with no morals to take away. Perhaps it's my fault to expect morals from Apatow instead of Aesop.

Throughout the years, though, I've seen and loved The 40 Year-Old Virgin's casts' other movies. And here are these excellent comedians, packaged in one film that's universally adored. I suspended disbelief and watched it.

The film is awkwardly hilarious, which is a feeling familiar to anyone who has seen another Apatow movie. However, what truly made the film is something unexpected: heartfelt romance and optimism. I didn't know this side of Apatow, but after 132 minutes of evidence, I must concede he's more than one bad movie. Despite my reservations, I found 40 Year-Old Virgin out rom-com-ing the best rom-coms.
June 28, 2014
This movie....was so painfully terrible...that I'd much rather watch 3 hours worth of SCAT porn than to watch this piece of crap. How this movie even got an 84 to 85 percent is beyond me. :/
June 19, 2007
Silly, light-hearted sex comedy.
June 14, 2007
Comedy with lots of gross out humor but as much heart
June 16, 2014
One of the funniest films in the new millenium.
April 7, 2014
Guilty pleasure with a capital G, the film is racist, sexist, disgustingly raunchy, and often mean-spirited, but the main character is so likable, and the script is so damn funny that I can't complain.
October 6, 2012
With a star making performance and hilarious moments, it's one of the best rated-R comedies of the 2000's.
June 11, 2014
This is a dirty yet romantic comedy film with an excellent story. Very funny throughout and it is sure to keep you entertained.
May 30, 2014
I adore Judd Apatow, but even though it's arguable this is his most beloved film, I just don't get this one. Sorry. I think its praises are symptomatic of more of a case of lightning in a bottle than anything.
November 22, 2005
A vulgar yet charming little comedy.
