The 32 Year Old Virgin Responds To The 40 Year Old Virgin
I have finally gotten around to see this movie. I kept putting it off because I wasn't sure how they were going to treat Steve Carell's character. Was he going to be a decent human being or such a huge dork to make him a dateless wonder? Was the movie going entirely mock his decision at celebacy or give him credit for it? As a person in his 30's and still a virgin I hate to talk about it because it can easily become your identity. You become "The Virgin". To hollywoods credit they did an ok job on the subject. Once the cat came out of the bag Carell became so identified with the fact that he's a virgin that everyone around him felt it was their duty to try and help him. This happened to me with some people I have know, but not to the extreme in the movie. Yet he was the one who was most content and happy with his life than the guys who were getting some. Though the morality got a little muddied in the movie it pleased me that they treated the subject with some humor. His bumbling and stumbling with trying to date, how he reacts very candidly to the people around him how he doesn't have the problem, and ultimately his marriage to someone special. I enjoyed the movie, it was funny, and I can relate big time to Carell in the movie. Though I don't have all the action figures.
