It’s pretty much the same thing

Pretty much. Maggie Gallagher (the real life 40 year old virgin) writes:

Two of the hottest love stories this summer are “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” and “March of the Penguins.” […]

Funny thing is, both movies are both pretty much about the same thing: […]

“The 40-Year-Old Virgin” is a quirky, rather vulgar and endearingly subversive sex comedy[.] […] The comedy here is rooted in the audience’s rueful laughter at the mishaps produced by the way the sexual drive relentlessly fuses with the restless human search for lasting love.

Which is exactly how we would summarize The March of the Penguins.

A cynic might say that “March of the Penguins” strikes a deep chord for many two-career couples whose lives together are similarly marked by brief interludes of love followed by extended hand-offs of childcare logistics. But I am not so cynical.

How is that cynical? A cynic would say that penguins are just stupid dirty birds.


“Funny thing is, both movies are both pretty much about the same thing: […]”

Seperating me from my close friend Andrew Jackson?

Making me sit through previews for “the Cave”?

Or perhaps, helping me calculate the exact volume of my bladder, 64 oz at a time?

and if i wanted to see an ad for soda, i’d watch television.

p.s. Penguins are just stupid dirty birds.


I once held a guy’s balls in Hebrew school.


Actually, I think the Penguins have a chance to make the playoffs for the first time in a couple of years!
Guess that’s their “March” to the Stanley Cup.


Ahhhh Maggie.

The 40-Year-Old Virgin and March of the Penguins do both share one theme:

Mother Nature is a biotch.


Ah, so they’re trying to claim “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” as a conservative movie. I guess this goes along with their strawman of liberals wanting mandatory orgies for everyone over 12.


I think it (“The 40-Year-Old Virgin”) sort of does have a conservative message, in the end. I don’t want to say anything in case anyone hasn’t seen it (not that the ending is a surprise), but there was really no need for certain circumstances to be in place as the movie came to its conclusion.Now, I’m getting confused. Was there a scene in “March of the Penguins” where one of the penguins gets his chest-feathers waxed?
