He's Both a Freak and a Geek

Steve Carrell’s new flick The 40-Year-Old Virgin had not particularly caught my eye — until, that is, I saw gorilla vs. bear’s post about it, which revealed that the movie’s writer and director is Judd Apatow, one of the guys behind the excellent, excellent TV show “Freaks and Geeks.”

Also, it’s at 85% on the Tomato-meter.

The whole cast is awesome -- Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, Catherine Keener. I was down on it too, even after watching the trailer, until I saw it was getting ups on MetaCritic. Aggregated critical opinion strikes again.

Interesting to note that it's up to 90% now on the Tomatometer -- and Roger Ebert gave it 3 1/2 stars. Color me impressed.

Ever the skeptic of dishing out $8.50 for even the most Oscar-worthy movie, I still found myself at the movies Friday, having signed on to see 40-Yr-Old Virgin.

AND IT WAS SO FUNNY! However, for full disclosure, before going out, I'd watched "Kinsey" and killed a bottle of wine with my sister, so we were tipsy, sexed-up and ready to laugh at anything. Definitely the best way to enjoy life.
