    40-Year Old Virgin

    After hearing Roger Ebert say Thumbs Up to this movie...I had to see it. I saw it and loved it. Anyone else want to put give their opinion/2 cents?

    Re: 40-Year Old Virgin

    I just got home from seeing it.

    I really liked it a lot (hence the avatar I assumed there would be a lot of gross-out humor, but there isn't. Its not over the top, its just a really great, fun movie.

    Steve Carrell is an amazingly funny guy and is perfect for the part (not that he is a loser, but it is easy to see him as a nice guy who just never got the chance) There is a great metaphor in the movie (or maybe I am making connections that aren't there) about the toys he collects in boxes that aren't opened. He has a great collection of collectable action figures that are displayed in a box- it kinds represented his virginity to me. Anyways, like I said, I am probably stretching it there.....

    Go see it- I'd say its probably the best film out right now. Thank god summer is almost over- fall has some great movies in store!

    ^ O-nut, I was thinking the same thing. He is actually pretty hot in this movie! He has a really nice body actually. I hope this movie makes him a star!

    Ummm, no! Is he really hairy or was that just the make-up talking? I think he's cute.

    The movie looks really funny but I'll probably wait to rent it.

    You're right DQ, that's what the whole point of the analogy of the unopened toys was meant to portray. Also, the contrast of the ultra shallow male ego of his friends and how they viewed women, as apposed to how he really viewed and treated women. I was actually a bit offended and annoyed at his ‘friends’. It was quite sickening to hear all the males in the audience whoop and cheer for these guys in the movie. But, I was glad to see that the main character was able to look past their advice on women.

    Though, I was hoping this movie to be a bit more entertaining, but it definitely had it's moments…most very crude, but many very humorous, nonetheless. I give it a B for entertainment.

    REAL 40 YEAR OLD VIRGINS SAY ‘40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN’ MOVIE MAKES THEM UNCOMFORTABLE---

    Sexually-frustrated Star Trek and Star Wars fans sue Universal, ask for restraining order

    Hollywood - The new movie “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” has become a HUGE unexpected hit, but across America, real 40-year-old virgins say promotions for the upcoming movie make them very uncomfortable as friends and family members make comparisons to the film and remind them of the fact they’ve never gotten laid. The virgins have filed a class action lawsuit against Universal Pictures seeking unspecified damages for emotional distress.

    Stuart Brownfield (chat screen name: farscaperules23) is a 40-year-old virgin in Nashua, New Hampshire who filed the original lawsuit. He is hoping that the movie will bomb at the box office. “I work in an office (Office Depot) and someone saw the ad for the movie in the paper,” said Brownfield. “Then, this one guy I can’t stand in shipping turns to me and says, ‘Hey Stuart, this movie sounds like it’s right up your alley.’ Everyone started laughing. I was so devastated I couldn’t even watch the new episode of ‘Battlestar Galactica’ that night.”

    Actor Steve Carell plays 40-year-old virgin Andy Stitzer in the movie. Andy’s never had sex. His friends consider it their duty to help, but nothing proves effective enough until he meets Trish (Catherine Keener), a 40-year-old mother of three.

    “People who have seen the trailer for the movie are now calling me ‘Andy,’” said an emotional Brownfield. “People at the office know that I’ve never gotten laid, but no one really said anything until these movie trailers and posters started appearing. My life has been a nightmare. I haven’t felt this bad since ‘Episode I.’”

    “It’s not easy being a virgin, and I really feel for these guys,” said 42-year-old Stan Jennings of Cranston, Rhode Island. Jennings, who works at Industrial Soap Inc., finally lost his virginity last year while having sex with a prostitute who ended up giving him gonorrhea. “I am not a virgin anymore, and it feels great, although I do have some burning. However, being a former virgin, I empathize with those losers, and I think the movie should be stopped.”

    Star Trek and Star Wars fans who have been feuding for decades have finally found a common cause in the lawsuit.

    “We don’t think it’s funny to make fun of virgins, and we will use all of our powers to stop this film,” said 40year old Larry Nohan, the president of the Star Trek Milwaukee Federation. “This movie is a blatant attempt to humiliate us. Why can’t people just leave us alone with our Uhura porn and stop judging us?”

    Lou Peters, a 39-year-old virgin and Star Wars fan from San Diego who lives with his parents, considers himself lucky.

    “I’m so glad I’m still 39,” said Peters who wears a Stormtrooper costume on weekends while playing the “Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith” videogame online. “One year old older and I would be the laughing stock of my neighborhood.”

    This is the most pathetic thing I've ever read.
    I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.
    That explains the trouble that I'm always in...

    Re: 40-Year Old Virgin

    I have a friend who is well on his way to reaching the 40-year old mark. He's 32, a virgin, and the last girl he kissed was at his senior prom. It was his first kiss ever, too. Sadly, I learned all these things about him when I developed a crush on him. Then the more I learned about him, I said...."WAIT! This is NOT a match for me."

    Now, we are good friends.
