†. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film The 40-Year-Old Virgin

You know this would be a perfect litmus test to judge if you have a good comedy on your hands. What separates this from anything other comedy I've seen recently is the attention to detail Apatow (and the cast) puts into the characters. Nothing's one-dimensional here. It's sophomoric, sure; but it brings layers to the story.
