"The 40-Year-Old Virgin" sold approximately two million in combined DVD and VHS units on its first day of release. The Universal Studios comedy, which was released on December 13, 2005, received a nomination by the American Film Institute for 2005's "Outstanding Motion Picture of the Year."

Available in both unrated and R-rated versions, "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" stars Steve Carell ("Bruce Almighty", NBC's "The Office") as Andy Stitzer, an amiable, middle-aged collector of geek memorabilia with a history of humiliating near-misses with women. Paul Rudd ("Anchorman"), Romany Malco ("The Tuxedo") and Seth Rogen ("Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy") co-star as well-meaning but clueless co-workers who offer him some of the worst amorous advice in history as he stumbles down the road to true love.

"The 40-Year-Old Virgin" DVD includes deleted scenes, on-set moments with cast and crew, and commentary by the filmmakers and cast. The unrated version contains additional features plus 17 minutes of footage created specifically for the DVD.
