Synopsis

Album Description
Featuring 17 Tracks That'll Seal The Deal, Including 2 Cast Recordings 40-year-old Andy Stitzer (Steve Carell) has done quite a few things in his life. He?s got a cushy job stamping invoices at an electronics superstore, a nice apartment with a proud collection of action figures and comic books, good friends, a nice attitude. But there?s just one little thing he hasn?t quite gotten around to doing yet - something most people have done by his age. Done a lot. Andy?s never, ever, ever had sex - not even by accident. So is that such a big deal? Well, for Andy?s buds at the store, it sure is. Although they think he?s a bit of an oddball, there?s certainly a planetful of stranger (and homelier) guys who?ve at least had one go at having a go. They consider it their duty to help Andy out of his dire situation and go to great lengths to help him. This soundtrack is the key to the big score!

CD Reviews

Fits the movie perfectly!

"This soundtrack is not only great, but it is a great reminder of the movie. I can't hear "Heat of the Moment" without thinking of the hilarious scene of Steve Carell on his bike chase. Great CD to put in when you are in the mood for something fun."
A diverse sampling of music

"The Good
If you haven't seen the movie, that's okay. Just looking at the titles of some of the songs included on the soundtrack is sure to elicit a snicker out of you. You can just imagine where songs like "Virgin Man" (Robinson), "Just Got Lucky" (JoBoxers), "Score" (Workman), and "I Got Ants in My Pants" (Brown) fit into the movie. Although, if you're forty years old (or so) today, a lot of these songs may just remind you of your first time. "Heat of the Moment" (Asia) is one of those songs that really defined the early eighties with its synthesizers and harmonious vocals melodies. "I Ran" (Seagulls) is another one of those songs that you'll never shake from that era.

I'm sure that at a lot of proms and weddings circa 1985 people were slow dancing (and possibly getting lucky) to "Never Surrender" (Hart). Thanks to a Starburst commercial, "Hello" (Richie) seems to be making a comeback. For all the parody it gets, it's a great ballad. If you only get this soundtrack for just one song, get it for "Theme From Greatest American Hero (Believe It Or Not)" (Scarbury). There's just something about the cheesy, over-the-top, `I'm on top of the world' anthem that stays with you for years (though you're afraid to admit it).

The Bad
You can live without the cast recordings of "Aquarius" and "The First Time". As with most soundtracks, you really need to see the movie first.

The Verdict
The 40 Year Old Virgin Soundtrack scores (couldn't resist) with a diverse sampling of music that will recall your younger and more awkward years.
