Recumbent tandem in major film

I've just watched the trailer to an American film I saw advertised on
the side of a bus. The star of the film is shown riding both a upright
bike and a recumbent tandem. Perhaps the dark side is breaking into
mainstream cinema (and not just Star Wars) and recumbent cycles will
become (even more) cool. The name of the film? "The 40 Year-Old Virgin".
Oh dear.

Yeah. If he'd bought a car he'd have got laid.

I seem to recall that being the implication of the byline of one of the
poster adverts.

That's true, but the trailer shows a couple clearly enjoying themselves
on the tandem. I suppose we'll have to watch the film to find out
whether the bicycles are babe-magnets or nerd-accessories.

Gah! When will they 'get it' that cycling is sexy, think: muscular
shaved cyclists legs, fit in more ways than one, not to mention all
that talk of shiny helmets, lubricants, rubber, etc.

Not forgetting whips, nipples and pumping.

One look at all the baggy old lycra sported at the York Cycle Rally
knocks that image on the head

Somehow I don't think I'll need to watch the film to guess which way
it pans out.

That came out without a line break.
Congratulations to the newly minted Doctor.

The second line was a weak joke.
