Steve Carell's '40 Year Old Virgin' is an immature mess. The man, well, yes..., even the movie. Maybe it's even a contrived mess, but the results are gratifying--no pun intended!    Andy (Carell) is an isolated employee at "Smart Tech," a generic version of something like Best Buy. There's he's an invisible nerd who has little connection with his fellow employees as he does to significant others at home. (At least there, he has apartment neighbors, an elderly African-American …

This movie was just ok as far as entertainment value goes. If you saw the trailer you already have seen all the laughs in it.

Steve Carell has a winner on his hands with "The 40-Year-Old Virgin." It's a raunchy, laugh-out-loud adult comedy that's worthy of multiple viewings.

They're initial attempts are hilarious. As the story goes on, however, …

You got to give a hand to Steve Carnell and Paul Rudd for trying. Unlike other movies, comedies are usually hard to rate or sum up when there really good (like Wedding Crashers) but easy to criticize if there bad (like this movie).     The movie started out with a good concept, and progressed pretty nicely, but by the middle of the movie, I felt like the comedy just ran too dry. Lets face it, Steve Carnell doesn't have the star power or comedy laughter of a will Ferrell, Owen …

Raucous humor, outrageous interpersonal situations, potty mouth, and over the top jokes have long been the successful turf of countless summer movies aimed at the teen crowd, films such as the endless American Pie series, Dumb and Dumberer, There's Something About Mary, etc. Now there is a new trend aimed at the thirty to forty something audiences that mimics the earlier teen subjects. THE 40-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN falls into this category along with WEDDING CRASHERS et al, but there is a difference with …
