40-year-old Virgin is one of the only movies I've ever bought. Blues Brothers is the other.

Police Academy starring Steve Guttenberg is pretty terrible.

The original was OK. It's just the best example of the law of diminishing returns ever. 40YOV just plain sucked.

This is another one of those polls that makes me think everyone else is crazy. 40 Year Old Virgin was easy and way, way too long. The main joke, of course, is that this guy's 40 and he (gasp!) has never had sex. There is a lot of attempted humor in the guy being unlike his 'normal' guy friends -- one of whom is a stalker, one of whom is a 'normal guy' (slightly overweight, unattractive, makes gay jokes, white), the other is an oversexed black guy with a vague criminal history. Unlike these guys, the title character eats breakfast. Seriously, the film tries several times to make humor out of the fact that the dude eats a decent breakfast every morning. Aside from that, he collects toys and rides a bike (what a loser!). And so on...
There are a bunch of predictable set pieces involving gay jokes and racial slurs and how to find a girl at the club who's drunk enough to go home with you. Oh, but make sure she's not too drunk because otherwise, she'll end up vomiting in your face and you still won't get laid! It should be said that all of the normal guys encourage dude to prey sexually on very drunk women ("just make sure you drive next time dude") -- that's right, normal guys are borderline rapists!
Oh and then his boss is butch. Hilarious!
Oh and two of his colleagues are umm east Indian/Arab/Persian/Pakistanis (they never actually say which) who curse a lot. Again, absolutely hilarious.
And I haven't gotten into the also predictable "times he tried to have sex and failed" set pieces. One time, this girl's sucking his toe and he likes it so much he kicks her in the face! Another time, his friends get him a prostitute but it's a transexual! Brilliant! And so on and so on... They go speed dating. He waxes his chest hair. Blah Blah Blah.
It's stupid. There's no crime in stupid, though. The crime is in being bad and easy and no fun. Don't trust anyone who tells you otherwise: This movie sucks.

In other news, it's a slow day at work.

I'm sure that's hilarious, but I've never heard a single Coldplay song (that I know of anyway), so I don't get it. Do they make really good music that only brilliant people with amazing senses of humor would like or something?

Yeah, I disagree with Art. Completely disagree.

It's not necessarily hilarious but it's a great film. It's like Thank You for Smoking and Little Miss Sunshine - I can't remember any great lines from these movies but the characters were great and I left the theatre thinking that it was a great movie. Steve Carrell is great and Catherine Keener is mmmmmm milfy.
