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.
