You listen to too many people, listen to yourself.
His friends keep giving him advice, they keep pushing him in directions telling him whats cool, whats hip, and what he needs to do to be like one of the group.  It's almost a parelell to my own life and how nice it is to see the lead in a movie to be identifiable in real life in such a way.  The best part is, our hero knows just what to do.      Steve Carell is Andy, a nice guy.  He lives on his own, has a room full of his collection of toys, video games and …

Pros: A lot of hilarious dialogue, bizarre situations, great acting     Cons: More profanity than even I thought necessary     The Bottom Line: It's laugh-out-loud funny, but remember, it's rated R for a reason.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie's plot. Andy (Steve Carell) is a normal guy...sort of. He has a solid job, a nice apartment, owns a bike instead of a car, but there’s just one thing different …

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. The premise seems to be the more a guy is into toys, comic books and basic collectible items (the main character likes to hand paint toy soldiers and rides a bicycle for transportation), the less likely he will ever make it with a girl. A likeable electronic salesman who is all those things has never had any relationship with a woman. His work buddies realize this and try …

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. Unlike most adult comedies that rely strictly on gross-out and sexual humor, there's actually a message behind all of the silliness in this flick.     The story is simple, Carell is forty, a virgin, and has a few buds who are determined to get him a little nookie. 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 …
