  • Andy Stitzer (Steve Carell) rides his bike to his stockperson job at Smart Tech, has a nice apartment filled with collectable toys (in their original packages), and plays videogames every night before bed. He's also a 40-year-old virgin. During a poker game with his coworkers David (Paul Rudd), Jay (Romany Malco), and Cal (Seth Rogen), talk turns to sex and it becomes very clear that Andy doesn't know what he's talking about. His friends become intent on remedying his situation, and their advice leads to newfound confidence for nave Andy. But when he develops true feelings for single mother Trish (Catherine Keener), Andy finds that all the sex advice in the world won't help him navigate the choppy waters of an adult relationship.

    In Andy, Carrell has found a perfect comic creation who is hilarious, lovable, and rooted in reality. Rudd, Malco, and Rogen are also perfectly cast as Andy's cheerleaders. The script, by Carrell and first-time director Judd Apatow (producer of TV's FREAKS AND GEEKS), is consistently funny, and--despite its relentless crudity--treats its nerdy protagonist with the utmost respect. This rare quality and its high laugh-to-joke ratio make VIRGIN one of the most enjoyable comedies of the decade.

  • Critic Reviews
    "Carell plays him in the funniest and most surprising way possible: as a credible human being....Buoyantly clever and amusing..."
    Entertainment Weekly

    "A howlingly comic revel in bad taste....[Carell] is flat-out hilarious....[It] keeps firing off rude, raucous laughs."
    Rolling Stone

    "Carell is now a major comedic force. With this awkward middle-aged character, which he expanded from a Second City comedy troupe sketch, he has landed on the ideal role to showcase his talents."
    USA Today

    "[T]he movie is often funny. Carell delivers some great ad-libbing....[A] messy, mischievous cult comedy in the making."
    Sight and Sound

    "[B]ehind every cheap joke in the film, there's as much heart as there is smut..."
    Premiere

    Ranked #19 in Rolling Stone's "Top 25 DVDs Of 2005' -- "Proof positive that Carell and director Judd Apatow are top writers."
    Rolling Stone
