The 40 Year Old Virgin Who Knocked Up Sarah Marshall and Felt Superbad About It Gets A Movie Trailer, Does Not Justify Its Existence

If you’ve run any IMDB searches for The 40 Year Old Virgin recently, you may have come across The 40 Year Old Virgin Who Knocked Up Sarah Marshall and Felt Superbad About It. You may have also hoped that you had entered a cinematic bizarro world, because surely nobody would greenlight such a thing. Unfortunately, the film is real, and the trailer makes it clear exactly what the film aspires to be—a direct-to-DVD piece of shit.
But you don’t have to take my word for it. View the trailer after the break.
The movie is directed by Craig Moss, whose only other claim to fame is a 1998 short entitled Saving Ryan’s Privates. For reals. Thankfully, I wasn’t joking about the direct-to-dvd bit. This movie’s only distributor thus far (according to IMDB) is the home entertainment arm of Fox. And considering its full cast of unknowns, I don’t suspect we’ll be seeing this in your local moving picture house.
Check out the trailer below (technically red band, so NSFW):
Clearly, Moss wasn’t aiming too high with his comedic philosophy for this movie. The movie also had the title Slumdog Virgin, which would explain the random Slumdog Millionaire shit-jumping spoof in the trailer as well. How this scene fits in a film that is also lampooning all the major Apatow films is beyond me, as well as the combined history of human logic.
I’m sure there’s a market for this sort of thing, it just depresses the hell out of me that it exists. I’m just hoping most movie-goers are smart enough to tell that The 40 Year Old Virgin Who Knocked Up Sarah Marshall and Felt Superbad About It is not the actual title of an Apatow production when they come across it in the video store.
