The 40-year-old Virgin


The poster alone makes me laugh. This is a lot better than the trailer suggests. It got a 90% on the rottentomatoes.com movie review aggregator. The guy seems to have a pretty common type of social anxiety... And he has no driver's license and doesn't drive! Like me! lol. See this movie.

From the previews I've seen he doesn't appear to have any kind of disorder. He appears to suffer from bad luck. It does look like a pretty funny movie though.

As a 30 year old virgin I cringe at the mention of this movie. I don't plan on seeing it, I would feel humiliated myself watching it.

I am part of an asexual forum where people don't mind being virgins even older than 40, and they pose the question ... what's so wrong with being a virgin? And why does this man need "fixed?"

I'm a virgin, but guess what? I can laugh at myself. I will be going to go see this movie. The movie isn't about a person who suffers from SA. So I don't really see the big deal.

^^ Yeah, I'm a pathetic virgin myself, and I gotta say the guy in the movie isn't made out to be a one-dimensional loser or anything who was desperate to lose it. He was very sweet and lovable, and had simply given up on sex. The movie is raunchy but surprisingly it has a lot of heart... And I hear it was produced by the creator of Freaks and Geeks, which was like the only TV show I've ever been able to relate to. So the movie can't be bad.

Is it better than the trailer? I thought the trailer looked kind of funny-- but creepy poster.

To everyone getting their panties in a bunch: this movie treats the subject with more care than you'd think, and is mostly sympathetic to the plight of a 40 year old virgin. Obviously some jokes are made at his expense because his situation is a little unusual, but everyone ends up being on his side and tries to help.

It's also pretty damn funny and I'm glad it's succeeding, because it deserves to.

^There's a book?

It was hilarious, but it was pretty sensitive toward the dorky virgin guy, like how they handled the geeky characters on Freaks and Geeks. The movie was much better than the chest waxing scene and "Ahhhh Kelly Clarkson!" you always see on trailers.
The idea of making a mix tape of favorite porn scenes is incredibly funny. Called Boner Jams, . "A collection of porn scenes I was really into the summer of 2003."

i just saw it, its too funny. very very funny...it reminds me of me...you know like i said before long before movie came out...social anxiety is all about sex! some of you skeptics doubted me..psychlogist wont acnoledge it..or else theyll lose clients...if you have a happy sex life (not just merely having sex), then you dont have no socialphobia...your gonna be so relaxed...talking to people... lets see if the moderator..is gonna try to block this post and live in denial too.

well first of all i am sorry that you dont desire sex..i hope you did in the past or you will, but your proving the point again...you dont have sex...therefore your not relaxed during the day..in the back of your mind..as a human creature...your seeking sex just like food/water. thats why your anxious around people man, because sex is everywhere...even if theyres only guys, you know the conversation is gonna go to sex..so thats why we hate having 'guy' conversations.

I don't believe people when they say they don't desire sex. I think they're just lying to themselves.

Or they have a serious hormone imbalance...
