Commercial Interruption

Okay, now I have to see this movie.

Yep, ya do. And so does everybody. I've seen it 4 times and could watch it again right now. Underneath all the VERY heavy duty swearing and sex talk (note, there is surprisingly little nudity however) is a brilliantly written comedy with a terrific conceit, plot and performances, and an "out there" message: don't have sex until you get married or you'll probably be pretty miserable. As a plus, the women in it are actually as funny and the guys, and not just eye candy. What else? Great honest humor about racial differences.

Should have won Best Picture.

Stick to the theatrical version. the alt unrated one put back a few scenes that could have easily stayed on the cutting room floor and don't really add anything but length.

What picture is this?

One of Lovely Daughter's all time favorite movies, I think (!), definitely favorite of the year. She wants it for Christmas, even though they've rented it twice so far...they saw it in the theatre with HIS parents, Lovely Daughter says it's funnier when her father-in-law isn't in the same room.

I agree - a funny movie - kind of sweet, actually - though I admit I didn't laugh as uproariously as my husband and 22-year-old son did. Also it could have been twenty minutes shorter if they'd eliminated the work ``fuck.''

It's out in DVD already (we have it because my son bought it) but you can probably Netflix it as well.

A lot of conversations in real life would be a lot shorter if they removed the word "fuck" as well. In fact, a vast and blessed silence would descend upon the land.

No no no!!! It's the 40-Year-Old Virgin!!! Really. But I hear Knocked Up is the same deal: obnoxious with a worthy message.

Oops. Now I remember, that same actor was in it. Well, I've got to see both movies then!
