The 40-Year-Old Virgin

August 20, 2005 - reviews

I’m a big fan of Steve Carrell. Loved him on The Daily Show. I also like Paul Rudd. But, Anchorman being the unwatchable mess that it is, I was a little apprehensive about this re-pairing of two of its stars. But they pulled this one off. It’s very entertaining. The story is predictable, but has an undeniable appeal for thirtysomethings, whether you are still a virgin or not. Like just about every Hollywood movie, it suffers from traileritis — too much plot and too many punchlines are thrown away in the trailer — but there are still enough gems in this one to make it worth seeing.
