It was good, funny and realistic from a woman's point of view. We also took our 12 year old son to see it because it deals with lots of issues he'll be encountering in middle school and high school as many of the kids become sexually active.

I know that there are plenty of critics who like this movie. I had to make a rear exception. Steve Carell is no Woody Allen and \"the 40 year-old Vergin is no \"Play it Again Sam\" There are some funny moments, but the character played by Carell does nothing but being ridicule by his friends for not having sex. It\'s much better than \"Druce Bigalow:European Gigalo,\" but this film falls short. But at least I\'m glad that Catherine Keener and Jane Lynch is in the movie.

Excellent, excellent movie. One of the funniest, most clever comedies I've ever seen. Go check it out, you won't be disappointed.

It was funny in some parts, but most of it was just silly. It has a feel-good ending, which I liked a lot. I wouldn't say don't see it, but I'd probably save the money and wait for rental.

Lots of laughs! It was a little naughty but then again, the title of the movie kind of lets you know that.

Sorry to have to disagree so strongly with so many folks who actually found this tripe entertaining. I found the whole premise to be an example of low grade humor that I, personally, have a hard time stomaching.

It is difficult for me to believe that this movie could actually find an audience older than twelve who find it to be funny. I am patently offended by the message promoted by this movie that somehow, there is something wrong with us if we are not having gratuitous sex and that we are somehow, not fulfilled until we do.

Is that really the world view that we want our children buying into? I’ve heard this movie referred to as clever. What? How clever do you have to be to resort to prepubescent sex humor to get a laugh? Although, by today’s standards I suppose that’s the norm. It sure is a far cry from the days when comedians really had something funny to say.

Sure, it does introduce a “love” element into the, so called, plot but even that is relegated to the sewer by implying that until sex is involved it falls short of being fulfilling.

“There’s Something About Mary” it ain’t.

Very funny!

I laughed a lot. Comedies like this often drag at points, but this one kept moving.
