Yahoo User Movie Reviews: The 40-Year-Old Virgin
Imagine a man who was 40 years old, yet somehow never had sex. What would that man look like? Steve Carrell, as it turns out, and this movie documents his life as he occasionally tries to end his terrible shame. Typically, Yahoo users are skeptical of content having to do with anything besides happy families. Let's see how this one fares.
NOT for Inteligent, Self Respecting People

I watched "Forty Year Old Virgin" Friday night(08-18-2005). As a movie goer, I like great comedy, but not at the expense of my integrity, honor, or inteligence. Not far into the movie, i heard vulgar disgusting comments about sexual perversion between animals (horses) and women, and talked about as if it was something a REAl , possibley even NORMAL person would or should be interested in. What a disgrace!
Furthermore..... Virginity is a gift from God. "He that commits adultery destroyeth his own soul". And "He that findeth a wife findeth a GOOD thing, and obtaineth favor from the Lord".
God: Uh, horses are hot dude, WTF is wrong with you?

The R rating for this moving is a gross understatement. The use of the F word is excessive. What story line??? There was nothing but talk of sex and the sex act itself.
Josh: That's pretty bizzare -- you'd think that a movie called The 40-Year-Old Virgin wouldn't really talk much about sex.

What phony garbage. Sucky plotline and unfunny twists. Sissy corny crap. I'd like it to tank. Its dog waste propaganda.
Virgin Society of America: Damn it, our first propaganda film and people can already tell that it's propaganda!

I was reading some of the F reviews. I noticed that many of them that had other movie reviews gave every episode in the star wars trilogy an A+, I like star wars as much as anyone, but epidsode 1 an A+, I don't think so. I also noticed they gave good reviews to other somewhat nerdy movies. So my theory, based on the movies they like, is the reason they hated this movie is becuase they themselves are 40 year old virgins.

Just because one is a virgin does NOT make him a bumbling idiot, or a loser, like they portray this guy. This film is offensive and mean-spirited. It's got intolerance oozing out of every orifice that can be thought of. Intolerance against virgins, because they lead a lifestyle that is semi-different from others.
Josh: Good point! At least, it would be, if only...
- "'The 40-Year-Old Virgin' is surprisingly insightful, as buddy comedies go, and it has a good heart and a lovable hero." - Roger Ebert
- "Don't let the poster fool you: Andy (Carell) is not the cluelessly grinning Boy Scout on the poster. Nor is he a pathetic, mean-spirited joke, like the one overplayed by Will Ferrell in the 'Wedding Crashers'." - L.A. Times
- "The good-natured tone of the film and the wonderful comedic talents of the entire cast -- especially Carell -- make the gross-out moments charmingly relatable." - CNN
- "Steve Carell plays the title character in a charmingly bent comedy about a likable geek's progress from action figures to real action." - New York Times
...you had actually seen the movie.
BAD DOG scene in this movie

Graphic sex scene between a basset hound and what looked to be a boston terrier. Very offensive to throw in a scene with two dogs humping
Harswil Manchester III, Esquire: It's almost as bad as when they are allowed to excrete wastes from their haunches!
