i only vaguely remember the book, but from the commercials it looked nothing like what i remembered. yeah, like bee said, narnia 2 (side note: what also bugs me about that is that instead of going and making prince caspian or the silver chair or something, they have to go and make a movie that they advertise as stylistically looking the same, but isn't part of the series. for as much as i hated the recent lion, witch, wardrobe, i'd still like to see them tackle some of the others). which is why i was wondering.

hi fah

The 40-Year-Old Virgin

This is one of the funniest movies of the past 5-6 years, at least one that keeps me chuckling throughout. What makes this movie good, like any other good comedy, are the quotables, it's a sign of either great writing or improvisation. I have failed to see something Steve Carell has done that I haven't liked. Because of his massive popularity, a big bomb is bound to happen, but that's besides the point. If you want to watch a dirty comedy with a strong emotional theme (yes, the concept of love/sex and how it drives people to do different things.) I hope I'm not talking out of my ass on this one, but that's what I got from watching this movie for the 4th time. Sadly though, some of the material hurts the pacing, and that's where I take off points.

9/10 (on the Comedy Scale)

I agree 100% with your review there LMP. That movie is so infinitly quotable that it automatically ranks itself among the all-time greats like Caddyshack, Young Frankenstein, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Arthur, etc.

And I also agree that while it's nice to have some real emotional substance, it does sort of hurt the pacing in parts, especially near the very end. Though the 60's style musical ending more than makes up for it. On the Comedy Scale The 40-Year-Old Virgin gets a perfect 10/10 from me, even though it's not a perfect movie.

I must also say that Cal has the best lines throughout the entire movie, and this is probably my personal favorite:

Cal: That's a good looking grandma! My grandma looks like Jack Palance.
Andy Stitzer: Well, she's no Jack Palance.
Cal: No. If Jack Palance looked like that lady I would want to fuck Jack Palance right now.

I love Cal's lines, but Carell's one-liners kill me

"Is it true if you don't use it, you lose it?"
"I need some poooooooooon"
"How many pots have you smoken?"
"That girl was a ho... fo sho!"

You can fuck her while watching "Murder, She Wrote". She'll like that.

David: You know how I know that you're gay?
Cal: How?
David: You have a rainbow bumpersticker on your car that says "I love it when *balls* are in my face".

Oddly, I finished reading Brown's Angel & Demons and thought wow, with this topic, they won't make a movie. The day after mentioning this to my wife, announced on the radio that some studio owns the rights to make it a movie. Love to see it, wonder if it will actually happen.

Anybody know more details than what I've got?
