Cinecast #31: The Last American Virgin
Tuesday, 23 August 2005 01:00

A veteran of Chicago's famed Second City stage, "40 Year-Old Virgin" star (and co-screenwriter) Steve Carell has made a career out of playing what Adam calls "the masculine misfit." Unassuming, asexual and decidedly normal-looking, Carell is a born character actor, which makes it a pleasant and unlikely surprise to see him leading the ensemble cast of a big budget summer comedy. More surprising still, "The 40 Year-Old Virgin" is the funniest film of the year. Adam and Sam agree that "Virgin" is what "Wedding Crashers" should have been: unapologetically crass and funny as hell.

Also on the show, Listener Feedback, Massacre Theatre and a look ahead to this week's Top 5... Overrated Movies.

Music by Bobby Bare Jr's Young Criminals Starvation League courtesy of Bloodshot Records ... Cinecast theme music by Age of the Rifle.
