The 40 Year Old Virgin.

Twenty years ago, this would have been a bad Steve Martin movie, except that the chick would've been played by Lily Tomlin and she would've owned a health food store instead of We Sell Your Stuff On E-Bay.

Ten years ago, this would have been a good Kids in the Hall sketch, but they would've had to decide whether to have Dave or Kevin in the lead, and therefore make it whimsical or absurd. (Actually, Steve Carrell is a pretty good middle ground between the two.)

Today, this could have been a near-great Kevin Smith film, but he probably would've had Jason Lee and Linda Fiorentino in it, and he definitely would've played up the fanboy comic book geek angle.
