Popcorn Culture -  Throwback Tuesday: The 40-Year-Old Virgin

If you could trace the careers of comedy heavyweights Judd Apatow, Steve Carell, and Seth Rogen to a single turning point in their lives, you'd find yourself watching The 40-Year-Old Virgin. In Apatow's directorial debut, a fresh-off-Anchorman Carell plays Andy, an electronic goods store employee, whose well-meaning yet incompetent friends try to help him lose his virginity. We discuss not only the raunchiness of The 40-Year-Old Virgin, but also its heart, and how a film like this could have only been made in the weird window of time that was the noughties.
