This I've heard from a lot of people, but I generally don't like taking people's words for it. I've heard great things about both movies thoug from various sources. In any case, I plan on seeing Wedding Crashers and 40 Year Old Virgin... until then, i shall consult THE TOMATOMETER!:
(And bear in mind, anything over 60% is pretty impressive for any comedy)
Wedding Crashers: 74%
The 40-Year-Old Virgin: 84%
OK, so many 40 Year Old Virgin is more "critic friendly" which really doesn't say anything about the enjoyment I'll get out of the movie. In any case, ...Virgin seems a little more original... while Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson usually equal a hilarious movie, Steve Carell has been producing comedy geniusness for years on The Daily Show.
It remains to be seen.
