Coming Attraction: The 41 Year Old Virgin Who Knocked Up Sarah Marshall and Felt Superbad About It

Click here to watch the trailer for The 41 Year Old Virgin Who Knocked Up Sarah Marshall and Felt Superbad About It

Yes, this is a real movie, and yes, that is the real title. If you haven’t figured it out from the title, this is a spoof of Judd Apatow comedies.

There is a certain connotation that goes with movies with long titles. I’m thinking of movies like Dr. Strangelove or: How I learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb and Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation Kazahkstan and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. These movies present themselves as quirky, different, and unbound by the normal conventions of movie titling. The 41 Year Old Virgin doesn’t appear to have any of those qualities. Instead, it looks like a mindless spoof (has there ever been a good spoof other than Airplane!?).

What is the point of parodying movies that are already comedies? I can understand making light of disaster movies or horror movies, but comedies are already funny to begin with. And all of the jokes from the 41 Year Old Virgin trailer are either direct scenes from other movies or outdated pop culture jokes such as the “Can you hear me now?” cell phone guy. These scenes from the original movies already seemed outrageous, trying to make them more outrageous was just a fruitless pursuit.

I’m going to give this spoof a 0.5 on the Potential Meter. Please avoid it when it comes out on June 8.

      If you like the recent slog of parody films such as Epic Movie and Meet the Spartans then you might like this one too.

    Overall, if you need more storage capacity, then you should definitely get yourself a 6th Generation i – Pod Classic.
    Once decided on the things to bring, start packing.

    Please note doctors don’t prescribe oral medicines for vaginal infections, it can lead to side-effects. The built quality on the XPS is also a solid one with aluminum carbon chassis, giving it a sturdy, premium look. Some manufacturers call their product a Cover while others use the name Case.
