Not Really Caring About “The 40 Year Old Virgin”

After seeing Judd Apatow‘s The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005) again, I was surprised to discover how frequently boring it actually is (e.g., the nightclub sequence).  It tries to be engaging through highly sexual talk and very daring sight gags.  With the latter it sometimes succeeds, as in the speed-dating footage.  The successes that are there manage to be funny, but to me the movie in toto is not funny enough, and is overlong.  Worse, it is insanely and relentlessly adolescent.  Er. . . boredom, anyone?
