There was a time when I was convinced that Jason Friedberg
and Aaron Seltzer
, the guys responsible for all of the "Movie" movies, were the least talented people in Hollywood. Then I watched The 41-Year-Old Virgin Who Knocked Up Sarah Marshall and Felt Superbad About It
. Cowritten by Brad Kaaya
and Craig Moss
and directed by Moss, the comedy (I'm using that word loosely) is a parody of Judd Apatow
and Apatow-related movies like The 40-Year-Old Virgin
, Forgetting Sarah Marshall
, and Superbad
, and it accomplishes the dubious achievement of being even less funny than Friedberg and Seltzer's send-ups.
A completely laugh- (and idea- ) free experience that should be lucky enough to serve as the last nail in the coffin of movie parodies, not to mention the careers of its creators, The 41-Year-Old Virgin... is a new low even for the generally mediocre quality of straight-to-dvd entertainment.
