Capsule Legacy

The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005)

It still holds up, hilarious and human. Comedy that actually cares about its characters, themes, and stories. Carell is phenomenal. But the criticisms are right, too: very male-centric, iffy on race and gay jokes, and longer than it needs to be.

Is It Good?

Exceptionally Good (7/8)

Note: This capsule review was originally published elsewhere. If I watch this movie again, I might expand this to a full-length review.
