'Virgin' didn't give me a fun first time

I watched (or tried) to watch the 40-year-old Virgin a couple days ago. I believe I can honestly say it was the worse movie I have ever seen, and I've seen plenty of bad movies. I'm sure you know this movie as it was wayyyy overhyped, but the gist is that the lead character is, well, a 40-year-old virgin and when his friends find out they decide it's time he bed a woman.

The advice of one of them? "Make sure she's drunk. Really drunk, like can't walk, vomit in her hair and take her home." I'm paraphrasing, but that was essentially what one of his friends tells him to do when they go out. Yeesh. Just one of the reasons I hate this movie is that the men act like 16-year-olds. I already saw American Pie people! I mean, these are grown men acting like they're out for a grand deflowering or something.

Even worse, Andy (Steve Carell) acts as if he has no clue of sex at all. I can understand being nervous, especially as a man who is supposed to 'accomplished' and whatnot. But has he never seen a sexy scene in a movie? On TV? Read a sexy scene in a book? Seen porn? Masturbated? Fantasized? Something? Anything? That's what annoys me. I guess I'm asking for too much. I would have even bought hiring an escort just so he can get it out of the way and not have his first time be clumsy with a girl he actually likes.

When I watched it I realized it was over hyped and not nearly as cool or funny as it was made out to be. I think people thought it was going to be a laugh riot, well, from the title alone made some people go see it. But it wasn't even funny. And honestly, a 40-year-old virgin isn't that funny either.

    I got a few laughs. But I agree that it was certainly over hyped. I remember thinking it would never end.

    oh, you gotta give it another chance and take it with a grain of salt.

    the movie is laughing at itslef and the characters are actually endearing.
