The 40 Year Old Virgin

It took me ages to bother watching this one, another instance of me figuring the product wouldn't match the hype. Wrong. It matched it and then some. While juvenile and crass it is also smart and well crafted and very, very funny. It would seem this vehicle boosted the careers of all involved as you see most of the cast everywhere these days especially Steve Carell and Seth Rogen and one can only pray we see more of Elizabeth Banks in years to come. Same goes for director Judd Apatow. This was his first feature and he followed it up with the popular KNOCKED UP and we have FUNNY PEOPLE in the pipeline. If it's half as enjoyable as THE 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN it will be worth it.

I love this. I am also completely hooked on all the "bromances" of Judd Apatow, Jason Seigel ...and had tears in my eyes laughing during much of this movie as well as "Pineapple Express". If you haven't seen it, you must go get "Zack and Miri Make A Porno" I love Elizabeth Banks in it she brings an emotional truth and earnestness to the role that pulls together the antics and make it more than just a comedy of errors. I love it!
