The 40-Year-Old Virgin is a 2005 comedy film starring Steve Carell in the lead role as Andy Stitzer, a 40-year-old man who has never had sex. The movie follows Andy's journey as he navigates his way through life, trying to figure out why he has never been able to form intimate relationships with women. At the beginning of the film, Andy is portrayed as an introverted and somewhat awkward individual who spends most of his time working at a local electronics store. Despite having several close friends - including David, Jay, and Cal - Andy has never been in a serious relationship and has never moved past kissing a woman.

Everything changes, however, when Andy meets Trish (Catherine Keener), a mother of three who runs a local storefront that sells handmade crafts. Trish takes a liking to Andy and the two decide to start dating. As their relationship develops, Andy realizes that he needs to open up to Trish about his lack of sexual experience. With the help of his friends, Andy begins to learn about sex and relationships, and his confidence begins to grow.

Throughout the movie, Andy is faced with a number of obstacles that challenge his newfound confidence. He is pursued by an overzealous co-worker who wants to sleep with him, he accidentally insults Trish's teenage daughter on a date and nearly ruins his relationship, and a drunken night out with his friends almost leads to disaster.

The movie is filled with hilarious moments, including a memorable scene in which Andy gets his chest waxed in an attempt to impress Trish. The supporting cast is also stellar, with Paul Rudd, Seth Rogen, Romany Malco, and Elizabeth Banks all delivering standout performances.

As Andy approaches his 41st birthday, he is finally able to achieve his goal and has sex with Trish. However, the movie's message is not simply about losing one's virginity, but rather about the emotional connection and vulnerability required for a meaningful romantic relationship. The movie ends with Andy and Trish happily together, with Andy agreeing to adopt her children.

Overall, The 40-Year-Old Virgin is a heartwarming and hilarious comedy that explores themes of love, friendship, and personal growth. Despite its initial premise, the movie is not crude or vulgar, but rather a thoughtful and nuanced portrayal of one man's journey towards finding true connection with another person.

The 40-Year-Old Virgin is a 2005 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 56 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 7.1 and a MetaScore of 73.
