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.

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.

This is the funniest movie ever!

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.

Heard it was good, just don't see it with your parent's.

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.
March 14, 2016
With a star making performance and hilarious moments, it's one of the best rated-R comedies of the 2000's.
½ March 5, 2016
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.
