I also wonder how many kids saw that movie and found out the hard way that you cannot act that way at work and get away with it. Romany Malco is playing a guy who is WAY overcompensating for his lack of self-confidence. All Steve Carrell's character is is a little naive and he enjoys some hobbies that society generally looks down on, like video games, and he actually seems fairly content with his life; he's only unhappy once he starts experiencing peer pressure to get laid. I think it serves well as a comedy because it is exploring the whole obsession our society has with sex, particularly the idea that a man's masculinity is tied to his sexual conquests; Andy was the most happy to start with despite doing so many stereotypically unmanly things. I just did not get what was supposed to be so good about Knocked Up (and more recently, This is 40; which I coudn't even sit through.) I thougth it was sweet and funny. Kat Denning was cute and every word out of her mouth was not a single entendre like on her TV show. It isn't the old Indian guy who tried to kill his girlfriend but the younger Indian co-worker-- the one who smoked.
When three co-workers -- David (Paul Rudd), Jay (Romany Malco) and Cal (Seth Rogen) -- need a fourth player for a poker game, they reluctantly rope him in.
David gives Andy his porn collection, encouraging him to masturbate. If you haven't heard of him before, you certainly will now.Carell's face shines with sublime innocence as he goes about being an inventory clerk by day and a reclusive collector of superhero and film memorabilia at night. I bet every Best Buy employee who's seen that movie absolutely cringed. In other words, why did the OP feel the need to start a thread purely to point out that he considered a specific 8 year old film to not be funny? Sure, romantic comedies are supposed to include romances and hence may not go for screamingly funny every chance they get, but note that the word "comedy" is in there, too. The best of them have some real gutbusters: Kathleen Turner sobbing as she finishes her latest romantic potboiler, the famous restaurant-based orgasm faking demonstration scene in "When Harry Met Sally," the idiot stoner guys in "Knocked Up" working for weeks/months on a brilliant idea for an Internet based directory of nude scenes in movie without bothering to check to see if it's been done already -- many romcoms have com cred. The closest it came to "funny" in my recollection is Steve Carrell riding his bike on some desperate mission or other. The tone of the movie is just weird, because Carell's character comes across as having some sort of undiagnosed Peewee Herman disorder -- slightly on the Asperger's scale, slightly developmentally delayed, it's hard to say. That's much more valuable than Steve Austin." "Well, that may be the case. His friends might not have been virgins but he was the best adjusted of the bunch. To be honest I just felt bad for her, we all just felt bad for her. It's worth watching just for that, although you could probably just watch it on You Tube. Apparently the whole thought of a 40 year old virgin was supposed to be hilarious to whatever strange person wrote the script. So most people seemed to find it funny and enjoyed it. " I'm guessing each preceding poster could do the same and all of our lists could easily feature not a single film in common. And Charles Bronson chopping that wood bare-chested... His friends might not have been virgins but he was the best adjusted of the bunch. I went into the movie thinking he was going to be the object of ridicule but I found a surprisingly well rounded and likable character.
