DIY Double Feature: ROMANTICS ANONYMOUS & THE FORTY YEAR OLD VIRGIN | Adorkables in Love

First, watch ROMANTICS ANONYMOUS.  Then, watch THE FORTY YEAR OLD VIRGIN.

I can't think of a thematic or other significantly impactful reason for watching either one before the other, so watch the one with subtitles first, while your eyes are fresh.



This isn't my most inventive linking, it's pretty obvious (middle-age dorks finding love in awkward and adorable ways).

They pair together nicely.  That's the only argument I have as to why you should take this couple of films on as a DIY Double Feature.  So just watch 'em.

But not alone.
It makes me sad to even think of that.
