The 40-Year-Old Virgin


Vinnie had told us that this movie was funny enough but not knee-slapping hilarious. So when we went into the theatre I was a little apprehensive about it. Marc and I had planned to see The Constant Gardener at the NuWilshire Theatre but the showing we had planned on catching was sold out. As I couldn't stay out late because my aunt was flying in tonight from Chicago (another aunt, yes), we had to opt for another movie. The 40-Year-Old Virgin fit our schedule perfectly, so we bought tickets to it. I just didn't think it would be a worthy substitute though.

Well we were pleasantly surprised at how amusing the movie turned out to be. I've had mixed feelings about Steve Carell because while I liked his bit part in Bruce Almighty, I didn't really care much for his character in the US version of The Office. But he did really well, he wrote a great script and he played his character so perfectly, that Marc and I were laughing out loud throughout the movie.

Marc thought Catherine Keener seemed a little too "giggly" in the movie, and I kind of agree. She was a bit excitable, as if she was overacting just a little too much. I think calm characters fit her better, like her character in Lovely and Amazing. But it was still refreshing to see her in a comedy like that. I haven't seen her much in movies so movie buffs, forgive me if I make a heinous statement when I say this seems to be new territory for her.

Some funny quotes:

Andy (shouting, while having his belly waxed): Yooooooooow, Kelly Clarkson!

David: Know how I know you're gay? You like Coldplay.

Andy (talking to a girl in a club): I hope you have a big trunk... because I'm puttin' my bike in it.

Anyway, 'nuff said. Loved it. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good laugh.

Glad you enjoyed the movie- but you didn't tell us the most important part. Will you be a virgin at 40??!
