Summary

A middle-aged shop worker reveals he has never been intimate with a woman, which prompts his shocked colleagues to set him up with a series of potentially passionate dates. When he falls for a single mother, his friends think he is right on course for a lusty liaison, but his new partner is not ready for a physical relationship. Judd Apatow's comedy, starring Steve Carell, Catherine Keener and Paul Rudd.

Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

If you're in the mood for some superior tosh, Judd Apatow's break-out comedy hit effortlessly fits the bill. The premise doesn't sound like much: a middle-aged stereo salesman unwittingly betrays his lack of sexual experience and his colleagues decide to help him lose his virginity. But there's something about this movie that transcends the mundane and - inevitably - raunchier aspects of the plot. Maybe it's the sharp script, co-written by director Judd Apatow and star Steve Carell. Maybe it's the equally sharp comic playing of a cast that also includes Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd and Catherine Keener.
