The Ultimate 40-Year-Old Virgin Quiz

615x330_virgin hero.jpg

The 40-Year-Old Virgin was a huge success in 2005, showcasing Steve Carell's comic talents, and becoming a first directorial hit for Judd Apatow.

The movie was notable for various reasons other than its general brilliance: the legendary "chest-waxing" scene was shot once, for real, with cast members' genuine reactions; much of the dialogue was improvised and, last but not least, the traditional "no animals were harmed during the making of this picture" line was withheld, after the accidental deaths of several tropical fish during filming.

We shall never forget them.

In the meantime, take our quiz and see how much you remember from the film.
