The 40-Year-Old Virgin

Out Now On-Demand

Better late than never.

Acclaimed writer/director/producer Judd Apatow made his big-screen debut with this R-rated Steve Carell-starring comedy. During an innocent poker game with his pals (Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, Romany Malco), the unintentionally abstinent Andy (Carell) accidentally reveals that he's a virgin. His buddies, all stunned, make it their mission to get him laid. But when Andy starts to bond with a nice, single mother (Catherine Keener), the pressure only, er, mounts. Co-stars Elizabeth Banks, Kat Dennings and Leslie Mann.

A ribald, risqué yet surprisingly warm-hearted vehicle for Steve Carell.

Chicago Sun-Times (Roger Ebert)


Surprisingly insightful, as buddy comedies go, and it has a good heart and a lovable hero.

Empire (UK)


Overlong and slightly muddled, this is nevertheless an enjoyable showcase for the superb Steve Carell.

New York Times


Steve Carell plays the title character in a charmingly bent comedy about a likable geek's progress from action figures to real action.

Sydney Morning Herald


Little more than an excuse for letting a bouncy team of sketch comics have their heads. Unlike most films pasted together in this way, it displays a certain cohesion.

Time Out London


At its best it resembles one of those classic early-'80s comedies starring Steve Martin... boasting an acute mix of desperation, dignity, lunacy and indecorous wit.

Variety (USA)


Crude, sophomorically homophobic but frequently funny.
