Aro Recommended 40 Year Old Virgin, The


USA 2005, 127 minutes
Dir. Judd Apatow
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Comedy / Sex


Aroview: A 40-year-old electronics salesman (Carrell) is discovered by his pals to still be a virgin, living in a world of plastic superhero models and faking his laddish 'knowledge' of the opposite sex.

Determined to 'break his cherry', they launch an educational campaign with Carrell eventually stumbling upon a woman (Keener) who seems to genuinely accept the eccentricity of the situation. Unleashing a delirious stream of inappropriate low-rent humour that makes Adam Sandler look positively witty, this certainly hits more than it misses, accurately revealing a primal layer of farcical hilarity surrounding the joys and problems of sex, with only the story's second-half turn toward the sentimental proving disappointing.
