The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005)

Being a Knocked Up fan I decided to watch the Judd Apatow movie that started it all. That is The 40 Year Old Virgin. Apparently this doesn't seem to be a quality comedy, but the positive reception made me fill this gap. The first half of the movie is average, with some laughs along the way, but as the time passes The 40 Year Old Virgin keeps getting more boring and uninteresting. Steve Carell's character fortunately is not the "dork" one would expect, but as the movie tries to make him believable he just ends up being bland, and you won't really care for him. The movie attempts to be more a less a dramatic comedy, just as the follower Knocked Up did, but it really doesn't succeed. The idea of a 40 year old main character that's still a virgin soon dries up. Then sexual clichés start to appear, the f word starts being overused, and worst of all: moral tries to be taught to the audience. Unfortunately the only fun I had with this was with the characters played by Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd that really play a minor role...
