Buoyantly clever and amusing. Read full review
Works on every level. The humor and language are as crude as an R rating allows, but Carell and Apatow's script is so hip, funny and - yes - innocent that it's never offensive. Read full review
Surprisingly insightful, as buddy comedies go, and it has a good heart and a lovable hero. Read full review
Steve Carell, best known as a team player on "The Daily Show," "The Office" and such movies as "Anchorman," earns top-banana status as Andy. He is flat-out hilarious. Read full review
A love story that gets the single male culture down so honestly and unapologetically that it can't help but push the boundaries of political correctness. Read full review
Apatow's film succeeds in having its virginity and losing it, too. Like "Wedding Crashers," it purges its cynicism with romanticism. Read full review
Carell accomplishes the task of being sweet-natured without becoming cloying. Read full review
A lot of the credit for what's right with 'The 40-Year-Old Virgin goes to the screenplay, which Carell and Apatow wrote. They like these characters and, when it matters, they dare to give them feelings, none truer than Andy's. Read full review
The jokes fly fast and sometimes very funny. They are, more often, crude and homophobic. Still, a genuine sweetness lurks. Read full review
Sticking to one joke in an unconscionably long film makes for a very stale, witless and repetitive comedy. Read full review
