Ep 74: “The 40 Year Old Virgin”

March 26, 2019

We slide into Judd Apatow’s “The 40 Year Old Virgin” and discuss:

  • defining the romantic comedy genre;
  • cinematography;
  • comedy story structure;
  • and other such stuff and things and stuff.

Realize that sleeping on a futon when you’re 30 is not the worst thing. You know what’s worse, sleeping in a king bed next to a wife you’re not really in love with but for some reason you married, and you got a couple kids, and you got a job you hate. You’ll be laying there fantasizing about sleeping on a futon. There’s no risk when you go after a dream. There’s a tremendous amount to risk to playing it safe. – Bill Burr
