So it is rather strange that I watched, let alone brought, The 40 Year Old Virgin.
The reason? Well, a number of friends whose opinions I trust on the subject (including some of you guys and gals on LJ who saw the film last year) raved about it so much I decided I would actually give it a go.
Boy am I glad I did.
The 40 Year Old Virgin is probably one of the best films - let alone comedy films - I've seen in ages. I found myself laughing loads and the situations and script are intelligently (ok so intelligently might be the wrong word here) handled. You can tell that the screenwriters and the director approached this looking for a higher standard of adult humour than many of their counterparts who seem to be just out for cheap laughs.
The lead character, Andy, is a complete geek. Which is even mroe entertaining as I'm sure I've met several 'Andys' in my time within the games and comics worlds. Andy paints miniatures, reads comics, collects action figures and plays computer games. He is a geek. Maybe this is an extra reason why I found the film so amusing, I don't know.
Anyway, if you haven't seen this film go and rent a copy. You shouldn't be disappointed. It's hilarious (although it does suffer from a typical "not sure how to end this" Hollywood ending which is a shame).

Trish: I'm throwing myself at you and all you can think about are fucking toys.
Andy Stitzer: They're not fucking toys! This is Ironman, okay?
Jay: Dude, it's not a big deal that you like to fuck guys. I'm cool, I got friends who fuck guys... in jail.
Andy Stitzer: [painting his toy figure] I'm gonna make your silver pants blue!
