It's truly dirty and truly romantic at the same time, a combination that's very hard to pull off.

Clever concept degraded by vulgarity. Far too long at just under two hours with some funny moments, counterbalanced by juvenile use of coarse language and situations.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

There are moments of macho overindulgence but, for the most part, it's perfectly pitched and splendidly funny.

Keener is as adorable as ever and there's a chemistry between her and Carell that takes you by surprise.

It's a joy to be in the hands of filmmakers who intuitively know the difference between rude and crude, who know that horny and heartfelt can exist in tandem and that jokes about race and sexuality are not the same as racism and homophobia.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10

With some serious editing, this could'’ve been one of the comedies of the year. As it is, it’'s strictly one for the lads.

The summer's funniest, most affectionate and - as it happens - dirtiest comedy.

First half is flat and unfunny, second half picks up and ends well.

On the road to true love, as it turns out, there are a lot of dick jokes and a lot of gay jokes and a line-up of stereotypes.

Even Keener transcends her famous ball-busting screen persona and registers real warmth.
Full Review | Original Score: 8.6/10
August 30, 2005
Kind-hearted, hilarious, and thankfully, rated R - no punches pulled makes for a funnier film.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

Underneath all this idiotic crap, inconsistent characterizations, and plot points that are never developed, there is actually a warm, moving story

Don't miss Steve Carell's debut in a lead role......it's truly refreshing.

The scene you'll most remember is when Andy agrees to a chest waxing.

What this Virgin lacks and desperately needs is - dare I say? - someone with a little experience.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Overall, The 40-Year-Old Virgin finds a good balance between multiplex-pleasing body humor and multiplex-pleasing sincerity.

Apatow proves once again that a raunchy, R-rated comedy can still bring in a mainstream audience.
