From Judd Apatow, the mastermind producer behind hit comedy 'Anchorman', 'The 40 Year-Old Virgin' is a fantastic blend of comedy, romance and somewhat realistic moments of drama. Staring Steve Carell as the mature virgin, the film doesn't just pull out over-the-top gross humour and gags like many other sex-comedies (a-hem, Inbetweeners... American Pie), it instead thrusts the audience into a world of humour that has a realistic manner to it - no different to your typical night out with the guys where the odd sex joke pops out. All-in-all I think this film is a fantastic comedy that not only showcases the acting ability of Carell and the supporting cast, but focuses on a realistic scenario and then buffs it up with a dose of humour.

Steve Carrell was so spot on with this comedy that it made up for its too realistic approach of the premise. Not a completely laugh out loud movie but it holds its own in charm and simple characters. But hey, what the hell was that ending song!?

It is hilarious, it is somewhat relatable, but overall it is a stupendous comedy if it was not for Steve Carrell's performance.

A Funny Adult Comedy

Demostrando que para hacer reír solo se necesita una divertida idea que no sale de una realidad humana.

Hace un buen uso del humor provocativo y erótico en grandes cantidades, curiosamente las escenas más graciosas (que aparte son memorables) son de su humor más reservado que demuestra que también funciona y es efectivo.

Tiene a Steve Carell como protagonista en un papel que le queda perfecto, porque se siente real por las características del actor, lo que hace fácil que conectemos con él, sin mencionar que es propiamente cómico en cada acción hilarante que hace.

Si Jim Carrey tiene "The mask", Steve Carell tiene "The 40 year old virgin"

Sobre el resto del cast no poseen ningún defecto o son opacados con el protagonista, cada uno es reconocible y al mismo tiempo carismáticos individualmente. El concepto no sólo usado como comedia, sino que lo tratan bien haciéndolo tierno y natural, que también provoca gran interés en la historia.

THE 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN (2005) "Es, en mi opinión, una de las mejores comedias de los últimos años. Funciona enormemente, es efectiva en su propio humor en una película donde te puedes identificar y concienciar sobre esta humana realidad"

A hilarious comedy by director Judd Apatow. Many young stars careers began with this movie such as Jonah Hill, Kevin Hart and Seth Rogan. In Steve Carrell's first film at the star role his acting was great for the role he had to play. This is one of the funniest films I've ever scene and there are really no words I can use to show how funny it is, it's just a movie comedy lovers and movie lovers must see.

Brilliant funny film way better than what I expected, It's a comedy that will not be everyones taste and you have to make sure your not easily offended before watching a Judd Apatow movie as he's not affriad to make his work more in your face than you want.

Judd Apatow's best movie.

This has to be one of the funniest movies Seth Rogen has been in. This could be my favorite comedy next to Pineapple Express.

Is Steve Carrell's first movie his best? No, it's probably Fox-catcher.

You pretty much know what you're in for when you press play on a Judd Apatow film and this one is no exception. Lots of very funny dialogue and funny situations that Steve Carell is put in. Of course, you can't ignore the classic scene where Carell has his chest waxed (and was 100% real and filmed in 1 take). I'd have to say this one is a must see if you haven't.

Didn't personally like it, found it funny or interesting, it's definitely an overrated movie.

Way smarter than it maybe looks like at first, this comedy is really funny, maybe a bit too long, but still entertaining.

Judd Apatow seems to have a very interesting sense of humor, to say the least. There's a lot of jokes in The 40-Year-Old Virgin that really work when they land, but for every one that lands, there's one that falls flat. Jokes in the latter category often ride the line of gross-out humor that just seems crude for being crude, and it's just not all that funny. Because of all of this, the movie is weirdly inconsistent in delivering jokes. The thing keeping the film afloat, however, is the presence of Steve Carell. Carell is perfect for the titular character, and the way he plays all of the awkward mannerisms of his character is definitely the film's strongest point. The rest of the cast, including the likes of Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, and Elizabeth Banks, all add humorous moments of their own, but this is Carell's vehicle, and he completely delivers. It's just a shame that this talent couldn't have been used in a more consistent comedy.

Its got some good dialogue. But it can get repetitive and its just not sophisticated or interesting enough to be over 2 hours long. And near the end there is a really dumb and out of place slapstick moment that completely took me out of it.
