    Sticking to one joke in an unconscionably long film makes for a very stale, witless and repetitive comedy. show more

    The jokes fly fast and sometimes very funny. They are, more often, crude and homophobic. Still, a genuine sweetness lurks.

    Apatow's film succeeds in having its virginity and losing it, too. Like "Wedding Crashers," it purges its cynicism with romanticism. show more
