All of the performances in this movies are very good and funny.
Brian B. Johnson
Sure, there were a few times I laughed out loud, but it was over two hours long and I feel it lost its shock appeal by being too drawn out.

This is one of the funniest movies I've had the pleasure of catching at a movie theater in a long time. I thought I was purchasing more laughs for my buck buying the UNRATED version, but much to my disappointment this is definitely a case of MORE is LESS. The added scenes do nothing to enhance the original; in fact, I'd say 90% of these added scenes should have been left as "deleted scenes." They hurt the comedic pacing of the original. If you thoroughly enjoyed the original at the theaters, stay away from this unrated version. In fact, I'm so disappointed in this unrated version, I'm tempted to buy the r-rated "original" version even though it only comes in full screen (why the original is unavailable in the widescreen format is also cause for this fan to roll his eyes in disbelief).

Surprise, it's a morality tale disguised as a sex comedy.

Imagine you combined a few of the best parts of Something about Mary, 40 days and 40 nights, Sideways and ( as strange as it might sound) an after school special. Now, throw in more profanity than really necessary and imagine that the combination worked.

Plus, unlike the Josh Hartnett film, 40 days and 40 nights, there is some actual thought given to the kind of person who is shown.

It's not Shakespeare. It's not Once Upon a Time In Mexico. And it's not the Usual Suspects, but for what it is it works.

And what it is, is the smartest dumb movie I've seen in a very long time.

Among its many surprises, is you have a peer group of men who actually look out for each other.

You also have an attractive grandmother who is not the standard cookie-cutter grandmother.

These are just two of the many departures from the expected that make this anything but the one-note comedy that the commercials make it seem like.

The 40 year-old is cut from the same cloth as Steve Martin's early masterpiece, the Jerk, and as someone in his thirties, it's refreshing to see a funny movie, where the main character is not a 20-something.

Plus, the soundtrack is a surprising combination of some of the forgotten treasures of pop and broadway.

Perhaps, the best of all, it's nice to be reminded that everyone is running on their own schedule in life.

My first viewing of "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" was late in its theatrical run. By then it had been banished to the smallest theater in the multiplex, so me and (I assume) the only other middle-aged virgin in town were its sole audience. I wish I'd seen it sooner, because it's now one of my all-time favorite comedies.

Forty-year-old Andy Stitzer lives a comfortably regimented singleton life - similar to the main character from "About a Boy," except chaste, uncool, and with no internal monologue. He works in the service department of Smart Tech, a Circuit City-like electronics store. One day, a couple of coworkers ask him to be the fifth man at a poker party. He accepts, but during the game is outed as a virgin. The rest of the movie revolves around his friends' outrageous attempts to get him hooked up, along with Andy's determined efforts to overcome his fear of women and woo Trish, an attractive customer who owns an online auction store across the street.

This could easily have been another lowbrow copulation comedy. However, it's much better than that. Steve Carell (also a co-writer) does a fine job of making Andy into a sympathetic character. Indeed, I easily identified with his motivations and actions: the bad experiences that led him to forsake dating, his escape into fantasy, and even the mundane activities he uses to fill his solitary life. Andy's friends are also intriguing because they represent flawed approaches to women. David (Paul Rudd) is obsessed with a gal who dumped him years ago, Cal (Seth Rogan) objectifies females, and the serial cheater Jay (Romany Malco) can't commit to his longsuffering girlfriend.

The movie has been lengthened in this DVD edition by 17 minutes with additional and extended scenes.

They say that a tragedy is when something bad happens to you. On the other hand, a comedy is when something bad happens to someone else. Thus would seem to be the premise for The 40-Year Old Virgin, a film with a surprisingly efficient yet slightly misleading title.

Virgin's topic is Andy, a 40 year old electronics store clerk who has never done the deed. Shy and sweet, he sits alone in an apartment filled with an action figure collection so geeky it includes the Six-Million Dollar Man's boss. When trading sex stories with his buddies one night, everyone is shocked to learn they have a virgin in their midst. Andy matter-of-factly explains that he came close in his youth, but simply stopped trying; having sex wasn't his Holy Grail of existence. Nonetheless, Andy's friends make it their pet project to get him laid.

Much of the film's strength lies in that it is not a mean-spirited tirade against people like Andy, but a sometimes too sweet comedy about sex and virginity. Unlike the dreadful Wedding Crashers, the writers of The 40 Year-Old Virgin actually bothered to write a script, creating unique and often hilarious characters. Steve Carell avoids playing Andy as a horrifically crippled nerd, instead making him a nice guy who's nice nature has automatically cut him off from most women. The three friends initially seem like stereotypical jerks, but their roles are well written enough that they all function well within the plot. Paul Rudd plays David, the guy we have all seen before, obsessed with a relationship that ended a long time ago. Seth Rogen's Cal swaggers about as if he has been laid a billion times and suggests dating drunks, while Romany Malco `s Jay has been laid a billion times, much to the chagrin of his wife.
