YMMV / The 40-Year-Old Virgin

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: The end sequence, a performance of the Hair number "Age of Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In" featuring the entire cast. This happens immediately after Andy and Trish's consummation of their marriage.
  • Hollywood Homely: Cal. Granted few people would consider Seth Rogen their dream man but he is average-looking at worst and certainly not "ugly as fuck" by traditional standards.
  • Memetic Mutation:
    • "Bags of sand" (the line that gives away Andy is a virgin) to refer to breasts.
    • You know how I know you're gay? You added this trope.
      • On many internet message boards, "You know how I know you're gay?" has become a typical comeback to somebody pointing out minor flaws on an attractive woman.
    • "Putting the pussy on a pedestal."
  • Retroactive Recognition: The movie basically plays as a who's who of future comedic name actors.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Jonah Hill as the guy who wants to buy the goldfish platform boots so he can wear them. He reappears again during the ending sequence above.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: There's nothing really wrong with being a virgin. Sex doesn't have to be integral to a healthy and meaningful relationship at any given point, nor be an indicator of a person's maturity.
  • The Woobie: Andy. David is arguable as well because of his love/hate relationship with his ex-girlfriend.
