Speed dating scene from 40 year old virgin
Anything and everything about the San Fernando Valley.
This blog will take you back in time when the valley was covered with dirt and orange groves to a leader in the space race to its current status as America's suburb.
It was also a very successful one that was well reviewed and did very well in sales. I can easily think of 10 "Is (film x) supposed to be a comedy? And when James Coburn sits down against that fence and pulls his hat down over his eyes... Perhaps the subject matter just hits too close to home for many Dopers. I went into the movie thinking he was going to be the object of ridicule but I found a surprisingly well rounded and likable character. Leaffan, you started this thread, aren't you going to comment in it? Give us an example of movies you think are funny; so that we might better understand your need to come in here and rag on a move that's almost a decade old.
A former member of Chicago's Second City, Carell has been featured on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" and starred in the American version of the British TV comedy "The Office." He also gave a show-stopping performance in "Bruce Almighty." Now he brings down the house in his first feature-film leading role, that of the main character, Andy Stitzer, in "The 40-Year-Old Virgin."Stitzer is a shy, mild-mannered man who works in a large electronics store.
Jay attempts to quicken the process by tricking Andy into meeting a prostitute.
I also wonder how many kids saw that movie and found out the hard way that you cannot act that way at work and get away with it. Romany Malco is playing a guy who is WAY overcompensating for his lack of self-confidence. All Steve Carrell's character is is a little naive and he enjoys some hobbies that society generally looks down on, like video games, and he actually seems fairly content with his life; he's only unhappy once he starts experiencing peer pressure to get laid. I think it serves well as a comedy because it is exploring the whole obsession our society has with sex, particularly the idea that a man's masculinity is tied to his sexual conquests; Andy was the most happy to start with despite doing so many stereotypically unmanly things. I just did not get what was supposed to be so good about Knocked Up (and more recently, This is 40; which I coudn't even sit through.) I thougth it was sweet and funny. Kat Denning was cute and every word out of her mouth was not a single entendre like on her TV show. It isn't the old Indian guy who tried to kill his girlfriend but the younger Indian co-worker-- the one who smoked.
The locations for this film have already been found at the wonderful filming location websites below.
Andy begins to socialize and form friendships with his co-workers. If you haven't heard of him before, you certainly will now.Carell's face shines with sublime innocence as he goes about being an inventory clerk by day and a reclusive collector of superhero and film memorabilia at night.Amazingly (considering the fact that this is a sex comedy), Andy remains abstinent until his wedding night, honoring—in a very twisted way—the very thing everything and everyone else in the movie relentlessly derides. In addition to all the raunchy visuals, is obsessed with obscene sex talk about everything from anal sex to menstrual cycles to STDs to fetishes to prostitution to statutory rape.A minister conducting a wedding ceremony comments, "For God's sake, consummate the thing! Female anatomy is discussed (and shown via a medical mold) in detail, as is homosexuality (including a barrage of "You wanna know how I know you're gay? Teens brag about penis size and sexual abilities, while their parents either urge them on or laugh.
Though he all too often follows the continuous, unsolicited misguidance of his friends, Andy eventually realizes that he's pretty much, half-heartedly, OK with being a virgin.
