"The 40-Year-Old Virgin" 2-disc coming 5/22

The Digital Bits and DVDActive are reporting a 2-disc set of The 40-Year-Old Virgin coming on May 22. Information suggests it will feature the unrated cut only. No details on extras at this time.

Love the film, but never picked it up, so as long as the existing content is preserved along with whatever new bonuses are planned, I think I'll finally buy.

I prefer the regular, R-rated version. While some of the extra material in the unrated edition is funny, I feel it bogs down what was already a pretty long movie (at least for a comedy). So if this one doesn't have the theatrical version too, I'll probably skip it.

There will have to be some seriously good extras for me to double dip

At this point, I'll wait for the HD-DVD.

I have a feeling it's gonna come with a movie cash for Judd Apatow's next film, Knocked Up (which looks great btw).

Now maybe I'll pick up the 1-disc version when it inevitably drops to ~$4.99. I liked the movie, but not enough to pay full price for it.

It does look good but this kind of movie has been done to death, I do have much faith in Apathow though

I really liked the movie, but there defiantely needs to be something much better with this edition, maybe if they do the movie-cash and don't lose any extras.

I'm with the others who're sticking with my original unrated edition. This is a double dip I can resist. If I'd waited I'd jump on it especially if it has moviecash but I didn't.

Could it include Movie Cash for Evan Almighty, perhaps?

I would've picked it up if it had the theatrical cut on disc one and the unrated cut on disc two. But since it doesn't, count me out.

Question, what else could they possibly add to this edition? I thought the original unrated edition was pretty packed as is.

They could include the original theatrical version in widescreen for starters. Sure, it's already available (though I've yet to see it in stores), but it'd be nice to see it in the same set.

Yeah, including both cuts is the only obvious addition that could be made.

You can always add more features but the existing disc is already pretty packed.

I never found the widescreen theatrical disc in person but I believe I read that it had stuff on it that wasn't present on the unrated version like a trailer and I personally wouldn't be the least bit surprised if this new edition is just those two discs packaged together or something similar.

I got my widescreen R-rated version at Costco for pretty cheap a while back. I don't know if they still carry it though.

I didn't see that price in their ad. Did I miss it somewhere or was this an unadvertised special?

This is Universal we're dealing with. If this is anything like the Brokeback and Eternal Sunshine 2-discs they put out, it'll just be basically the original first disc then a second disc with like 20 minutes of special features. Eh, and maybe a few postcards. I'll still get it to support Apatow and Carell, as I am a huge fan of their work in general.
