Storyline

Peter loves his next door neighbour Erica and, on the advice of his grandfather, decides to camp out on her front lawn for the entire summer, or until she agrees to go out with him. His father is none too happy about the idea and refuses to let his son back in the house, even to get a change of clothes. Peter's friend, Matt, thinks Peter should give up on women (like he has) and just have sex with fruit, and have a total devotion to masterbation.

Quotes

[last lines]
Peter: My grandfather was right. I now know in my heart of hearts that people are supposed to make love. It is their main purpose in life. All those other activities - playing the violin, washing dishes, reading novels, drinking wine - are just ways of passing time, until you can make love again.

unique, and funny - see it
3 August 2002 | by (Eau Claire, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

i saw Eight Days a Week one night late on HBO, and I thought it was really funny. I liked the way jokes were presented and narrated by the main character Peter who has sort of a dry sense of humor. I recommend this to any teenager, also if you like this movie you must see 100 Girls, which in my opinion is almost a rip off,(although also good) of Eight Days a week with a few more twists in it. See this movie.
