The 40 Year Old Virgin is an American film about a man who is still a virgin at the age of 40, and his friends convince to find a woman to finally lose his virginity, and he sees his chance when he meets a single mother of around his age.

This was a very odd film, with one of the strangest story lines I have ever seen, and throughout the whole film, there were hundreds of completely stupidly hilarious jokes, along with many very painful and cringeworthy ones that were often very difficult to watch.

The story for this film takes a while to get going, and the period of setting up all of the characters wasn’t that funny, but by the end, it was a very enjoyable film to watch, with numerous ridiculous jokes that were indeed very entertaining.

All of the characters in this film did seem a little strange and annoying, which made it occasionally irritating to watch, but in the end, it was very enjoyable, and that’s why I’ll give it 7.2.
