Movie Review: The 40-Year-Old-Virgin

So I’ll do a quick Pro/Con because I feel pessimistic when I do movie reviews.  Which is why I really prefer TV shows which build deeper meanings rather than rushing things.

Pros: Waiting to have sex (bein a virgin) isn’t that big of a deal for women.  They won’t shun you, or not date you because of it.  And they’ll likely want to have sex with you in order to fix you.  To help you out? sort of thing.

He umm, talked about how hard it was for him, and even asked if woman would find him attractive.

Cons: They try to say that

  • It’s all in your mind, you can make the choice at any momment to have sex.  It was actually dissapointing how good his “game” was.  He didn’t come off as shy or anxious like people in this situation would be in.  You can’t just turn off your emotions and talk up a girl.
  • Every girl wants to have sex with you, all you have to do is say O.K.
  • Waited until marriage.  Usually one would consider this to be a good thing, and makes for an ok climax, but it felt off to me.
  • “I don’t know why you won’t sleep with me.”  – O.K., I’ll just leave, but then we’ll still be able to for a good bond together.

Yayyy, after having sex he all of a sudden was a functioning member of society, and he sold all of his “toys,” even though this “was who he was, and he didn’t want to be forced to sell his stuff.”

If you think it’s as easy as a drop of the dime to change who you are in order to fit into social norms that’s just rediculous.

I’m sorry, I just keep thinking about how close it is to “just stop being gay, it’s a choice, and you can just choose to be a normal functioning person.”
