I walked out of this movie after the 11th sordidly weak, disgusting thing happened within the first 15 minutes.



This movie...was a complete and absolute waste of time and $.



I like movies like Zoolander, Meet the Parents, Cable Guy, et cetera



I went with my fiance, who respects women in general, his own sexuality and mine, and he laughed only at the part when Carell gets his hair waxed.



This movie..was created for the adolescent with a dillhole, feebleminded, underdeveloped, witless, obtuse "sense of humor". The 'champion brilliance' of Carell only added to the worthless waste and poo-poo stinking up hollywood and the rest of the world. Thanks a lot, for nothing!



Yeah, i really hated this movie! and for good reason.



I can't believe I even sat through this movie for as long as I did without throwing a big nasty rotten tomato at the screen. But alas that would have proven futile in my attempts to express any honest disapproval.



I went to this movie because I thought it would be witty and clever, considering how the title is something different, a concept nobody has really worked with before.



But it was just stupid. They ruined it with the downward spiral of excess perversion.



For the most part, I heard all the guys laughing, looked around and saw a few disgusted expressions on the girls.



Any girl who can laugh through this movie and believe she still has any self-esteem or self-respect is kidding herself. And if your boyfriend/husband really liked this movie, I would sincerely ask why...



Because if a big box of porn, f***ing a donkey, excessive and profane adjectives about something as sacred and passionate as sex is hilariously 'funny' to him, it means that he has no problem with it. So then, what precious thing does he take seriously and strive to protect and commit to?

Why have limits? Why not make a "funny" movie about pedophiles next, Steve?



Big disappointment.

In other words, all adolescents with a "dillhole, feebleminded, underdeveloped, witless, obtuse sense of humor" should RUN, NOT WALK TO YOUR NEAREST MULTIPLEX!



This is one of the cleverest shill jobs we've seen yet.

Speaking of this, however, our theatre is honoring refunds to anyone who walks out during the first fifteen minutes saying that they found the movie to be too crude. Several older people have taken up the offer.

The Oriental is allowing 30 minutes for The Aristocrats.



I dunno, it seems to me that 40 Year-Old Virgin is far less crude than most in its chosen genre, although that might just be a byproduct of its sunnier disposition.

This reminds me of how my grandmother walked out of There's Something About Mary, demanded a refund, and then interrogated the theater manager: "Sir, do you even know what's in that movie?"

Curious. Has the dillhole, feebleminded, underdeveloped, witless, obtuse sense of humor adolescent demographic really failed to turn up in droves like the studio projected?

Well, you and I showed up.

That hardly counts as a drove.

True, but our dillhole, feebleminded, underdeveloped, witless, obtuse senses of humor ought to count for at least triple, don't you think?

I think that would only raise our presence to a herd, at best.
