Movie Summary

Judd Apatow

Forty year old Andy Stitzer has an easygoing job at a local electronics store, a vast collection of rare and valuable action figures, and not a single care in the world. But his life turns topsy-turvy when, at a friendly poker game with some coworkers, his crude friends figure out Andy's big secret: He's never had sex. His friends immediately take it upon themselves to remedy what they see as an unfortunate situation. Andy soon finds himself trying to pick up drunken girls at a nightclub, awkwardly chatting up a girl in the local bookstore, and being propositioned by his overly butch boss. But when Trish walks into his store and the two begin to hit it off, Andy's virginity becomes a greater hurdle than any of them thought was possible.
