40 Year Old Virgin

A combination of Steve Carell, Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, Romany Malco, and Jane Lynch is the perfect mixture of pure comedy. Add Kat Dennings and Jonah Hill to that mix, pure awesome comedy! I've seen a part of the movie before, but I didn't realize how funny it was until I saw the whole movie.

It all happened when they were all cast to play different roles in The 40 Year Old Virgin, a movie written by Carell and Judd Apatow, also the director of the film. The movie revolved around the character of Carell who was still a virgin at 40 years old (as the title of the film suggests) It then followed the pursuit of his three friends to find him a girl and help him have a sexual encounter. They tried different things from bars to speed dating, but it still took a while for it to happened.

It was a hilarious movie, although the humor and visuals might offend certain people. It was funny nonetheless. They went on a crazy adventure and seeing them go with it brought laughter. The lines were pretty good and the delivery made it even better. It was also amazing how these characters have very different personalities - personalities that produced different opinions that led the 40 year old virgin to be confused.

They also added a romance aspect which I guess they did to build the character. It worked for me cause it provided the opportunity for Kat Dennings and Jonah Hill to show up. These two are funny and you have Dennings' 2 Broke Girls and Hill's movie career to prove that. Catherine Keener played the love interest role very well. The character was actually dynamic that had different sides. It was interesting to see it all play out.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that all these actors came together to piece this funny film. From the conceptualization to the film itself, it was amazing. It was really good and it was an awesome way to spend the afternoon - laughing and enjoying this fantastic movie. It was a rude and naughty comedy but it was a funny rude and naughty comedy. Sensitive people might want to stay away from this film.
