August 16, 2005
Like a drunk friend at a bar, this movie's not nearly as funny as it thinks it is.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
August 15, 2005
Sticking to one joke in an unconscionably long film makes for a very stale, witless and repetitive comedy.

Apatow's creative miscalculation here extends well beyond forgetting to give his characters much to do: He made a comedy that's just not very funny
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 15, 2007
An infuriatingly-offensive, soft-porn primer on how to treat girls as objects who exist at the disposal of men.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/4

[T]his isn't, at its heart, a comedy. It's an achingly sad tale about loneliness and hopelessness...
August 21, 2005
Rated 'R' for repetitive.
August 21, 2005
A raunchy one-joke premised comedy.

At the risk of sounding like a party pooper, The 40-Year-Old Virgin is essentially the joke spelled out in the title stretched out for nearly two hours, with lots and lots of dead spots.

What this Virgin lacks and desperately needs is - dare I say? - someone with a little experience.

At first you think this is going to be another one of those 'guy comedies' where the jokes are raunchy and offensive, halfway through it settles down into a rhythm that works.

There are lots of stereotypes about grown-up virgins, but the film stands these stereotypes on their head, so much so that, by the end, our protagonist seems like the sanest character of the bunch.

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.

August 22, 2005
Its characters radiate contempt in so many directions that they heat with contempt from the inside out, as if in a microwave oven of scorn.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

Might make a good skit on "SNL" but as a full movie - no way!

I guess I lack the gene that finds gross-out humor and comedy applied with a sledgehammer funny. My advice is to stay as far away from this turkey as possible.

...it doesn't have the cleverness to match its charisma.

I was annoyed by it, and by its gross predictability -- up to, and including, its banana-oil-filled bromide of an ending.

Underneath all this idiotic crap, inconsistent characterizations, and plot points that are never developed, there is actually a warm, moving story
August 16, 2005
[Continues the trend] whereby ethnic inclusiveness can write a blank check for ethnic stereotyping and the homo-panic jokes are supposed to be on the hetero lunkheads, not on, y'know, the gays.
August 17, 2005
Also known as 'Porky's: The Mid-Life Crisis Edition.' Your reaction is going to depend on your tolerance of humor that's rude, crude and in-your-face.
