The 40 Year-Old Virgin 
Not real funny at all
1/4 stars

"Andy" (Steve Carell) is pretty nerdy. He drives a bicycle to work every day, he watches "Survivor" with his neighbors every week and has a very impressive classic toy collection that fills every room of his apartment.

While at an after-work poker game, his co-workers/friends figure out that he's a virgin -- a 40-year old virgin. His friends then put themselves on a mission to get him some.

He then meets a wonderful woman, who he becomes strongly attracted to, but is afraid of taking it all the way with her.

There is absolutely very little to like about this film. Most of the jokes are just too over-the-top to be funny, while others produce a chuckle. Others are set up so you see the punchline coming from a mile away.

The plot is too predictable. You just knew that "Andy" was going to lose his virginity before the closing credit rolled. You also just knew how the supporting cast was going to be when they learned "Andy's" little secret.

The performances from the entire cast are pretty good. Carell probably has the best performance in the entire cast. While the supporting cast does some good jobs, they have to work with one-dimensional characters who have very little development.

One thing I liked was the soundtrack. Some of the music is placed to enhance the joke, while others help set the mood of the scene. I don't recall any songs made for the movie, but there are some great classic songs throughout the entire movie. Somebody behind the camera must like the 1980's music.

Another thing I didn't like was that this film was obviously for a certain audience -- of which I am obviously not a part of. If you don't like raunchy humor, this movie is one to avoid.

Another thing that was good was the pacing of the movie. The jokes were spread out pretty well throughout the movie, and the story flowed pretty well.

Netflix users -- if you really want to see this film, I really suggest you drive to your local video rental place. I just can not picture anybody who would wait to see this movie.
