40-year-old Andy Stitzer (Steve Carell) is – for slightly unconvincing reasons – still a virgin. After his friends find out, they make it their mission to help him finally ‘pop his cherry’. Much hilarity then ensues. Actually that last statement is untrue, more accurate would be ‘Some amusing situations occur.’
Good things about this film : his friends are all well defined (in comedy terms) characters and are often funny to watch. The Hair medley at the end is funny…. and… er…the film is well made.
Bad Things about this film : I smiled a lot but only laughed out loud a couple of times. Unless you are 13 years old, the mention of body functions/parts in themselves isn’t funny and this is a trap the film falls into a lot early on. Later when the film does conjure up some genuine funny situations you then wonder why it didn’t before.
It all depends on your sense of humour, but for me it’s average. 5/10
