The 40 Year-Old Virgin charts one sweet guy's odyssey from never-done-it to been-there-done-that as he follows disastrous, but well-meaning advice, endures oh-so-close escapades and almost gives up in search of the one chance that will satisfy his long-delayed gratification.
Comedy - This is a raunchy romantic comedy strictly for the adults. While
most of the humor and the main theme of the film is sex-based, this
also has a surprising sweet side that may appeal to those not
normally drawn to raunchy comedies.
PROFANITY: Well over 30 F-words, 29 S-words, 1 GD, many others. SEX/NUDITY: Sex with related nudity; nonstop sex talk. VIOLENCE: Hits played for laughs. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol, tobacco, marijuana. ACTION: One runaway car sequence. COMEDY: Raunchy talk and physical gags.

Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Very Good The 40 Year Old Virgin is proof that motion picture comedies can still be funny. Sadly, the kind of consistent humor delivered by this film happens too rarely.
Roger EbertFull Review Very Good Here's a movie that could have had the same title and been a crude sex comedy with contempt for its characters. Instead, "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" is surprisingly insightful, as buddy comedies go, and it has a good heart and a lovable hero.
USA TodayFull Review Good You may find yourself falling head over heels for The 40-Year-Old Virgin. Or at least falling out of your seat laughing.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
We collected 108 moviegoer opinions. As expected, the teen and twentysomething males enjoyed this raunchy movie the most, rating it very high. The females in these two groups also enjoyed "The 40-Year-Old-Virgin," with just a very small percentage rating it low. For these groups I highly recommend this movie, but caution you STRONGLY to review the content before deciding to see it.
As for adults, the opinions are quite good, but not great. A larger percentage of the guys enjoyed this movie than the women, which is understandable due to the strong content. I believe I could recommend "The 40-Year-Old-Virgin" to adult males since only a small percentage didn't care much for it. Adult females is a little different. Only about half gave it, what I would call, a really good review. Fortunately, most of the remaining ones rated it as an OK/Average movie, which isn't too bad, especially for this type of movie. For adult females I would just caution you to read all we offer for this movie to be sure it's the type of movie you would enjoy.
40-year-old Andy Stitzer (Steve Carell) has done quite a few things in his
life. He's got a cushy job stamping invoices at an electronics superstore, a
nice apartment with a proud collection of action figures and comic books, good
friends, a nice attitude. But there's just one little thing he hasn't quite
gotten around to doing yet - something most people have done by his age. Done a
lot. Andy's never, ever, ever had sex, not even by accident. So is that such a
Well, for Andy's buds at the store, it sure is. Although they thin he's a but
of an oddball, there's certainly a planetful of stranger (and homelier) guys
who've at least had one go at having a go. They consider it their duty to help
Andy out of his dire situation and to to great lengths to help him. But nothing
proves effective enough to lure their friend out of lifelong chastity until he
meets Trish (Catherine Keener), a 40-year-old mother of three. Andy's friends
are psyched by the possibility that "it" may finally happen...until
they hear that Andy and Trish have begun their relationship based on a mutual
