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.

A great comedy with multiple LOL moments. Very quotable movie. KELLY CLARKSON 86 out of 100

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.

The 40 Year-Old Virgin is a very clever and sometimes moving comedy that is great when it's being funny, and good when it's being romantic.

Good casting line up and a good kick start for Steve Carell as he proves how good of a humour he can provide. Did drag for a little bit and the storyline is basically described in the title, you can guess what happens.

With a star making performance and hilarious moments, it's one of the best rated-R comedies of the 2000's.

The makers of "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" have above all succeeded in avoiding turning in a one-joke film and instead offering a rather sweet, resonant comedy that doesn't run out of steam halfway through. Steve Carrell is very good in the titular role, aided by the highly enjoyable trio of Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd and Romany Malco, and a joyful Catherine Keener. Spicy comedy done right.

The 40-Year-Old Virgin is the directorial debut from Judd Apatow, and it stars co-writer Steve Carell in his first film as a main character here in a comedy about a guy who works in an electronic store, lives alone in a house, and never had sex before in his life. So his co-workers try to help a guy out with having sex for the first time. Seeing as this is the only film that Steve Carell has written, I was hoping that it has lots of laughs, and not only does it accomplish them, but it was very sweet and has a heart. Some of the characters may seem unlikable at first, but they redeem themselves by actually helping a guy find either the right girl for her, or just find a random girl to have sex with. The situations that Steve Carell's character has to deal with in order to get a girl is very relatable and can be very funny, especially the chest wax scene. The writing by Steve Carell and Judd Apatow is well written with a lot of funny jokes, and it might as well be a dating tip for guys or girls who want to be in a relationship. You just feel so sorry for Steve Carell's character that you might as well help him also. Steve Carell is really funny in it, and so are the supporting cast like Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, Romany Malco, and Elizabeth Banks. The chemistry between Steve Carell and Catherine Keener is very well done and they got some funny moments together. The reality of the film is that it's so funny, that Kat Dennings is funny in it and is a bit different from her usual type of humor. As is, The 40-Year-Old Virgin is a hilarious film that I honestly would keep watching that every time that I see it on TV.

As with most movies, I have to be in the mood for it. However with 40 Year Old Virgin, I could watch it anytime and any day, a hilarious film.

I had not seen this movie in a while and I decided to view it again, it doesn't disappoint!!! Some of the scenes/jokes are hilarious and pretty clever. The indian guys saying racist jokes may be offensive to some people but it's a comedy, so it was funny. It's a raunchy comedy with some nudity and adult only language...but it works! The only thing keeping me from rating it one point higher is that it feels too long and some of the scenes should have been cut shorter. For example, when he is getting his chest waxed...it was very funny but it stopped being funny because that scenes goes on forever. There are other parts too with this problem but it's only a minor problem. If you want to laugh and you're not easily offended, this is a good comedy with some romance. I rate it 3.5/5 OR 7/10

Entertaining, but not as laugh out loud funny as some other Apatow movies

Thankfully the secondary characters brought a smile to my face.

Probably second only to Anchorman in quotability. Hilarious dialogue and a brilliant comedic performance from Steve Carell and a supporting cast that I think surpasses the almighty Channel 4 News Team

Steve Carrell is perfectly cast in The 40 Year Old Virgn. A 21st century comedy classic and perhaps the best of the frat pack films, this one will make you laugh over multiple viewings, and never lose its spirit. Where The 40 Year Old Virgin triumphs is in its ability make fun of its characters without insulting them, giving it a sense of friend like jocularity that makes it infinitely likeable. Establishing one star in Carrell, bolstering the careers of Rogen and Paul Rudd and containing underrated performances from Romany Malco and Jane Lynch, this film satisfies as a great comedy should.
