"40 Year Old Virgin" and Commuting

For those who haven't seen this movie, the central character is more or less a social outcast who chooses to ride his bike to work because he likes it, and through the movie this is a recurring source of jokes designed to point out how weird he is. I don't know if I am pissed or not, because in the end he is a great guy and his girlfriend buys him a new bike and helmet, but at the same time commuters are belittled frequently and made to look goofy and rediculous...

Discuss amongst yourselves.

Here's another, from the Lounge:
