Storyline

Nicole broke up with Matt months ago and is now engaged to someone else. He's very good-looking and has no trouble finding other lovers, but that doesn't help because he's still obsessed with wanting her back. Then he gets the inspiration that swearing off sex for Lent (all forms of sexual activity, even kissing or masturbation) will give him the perspective he needs. So of course a few days later he meets a woman and they fall in love. Now Matt sees his vow as a personal matter, and won't even tell her about it, but his friends think otherwise, and now the complications begin... Written by Anonymous

Tasteless, Vapid, Silly
3 June 2008 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

I can never understand why Hollywood enjoys making incredibly silly comedies about sex-crazy young men who cannot stay without intercourse a second or... 40 days. Josh Hartnett is great in Faculty, or Black Hawk Down but not in this typically greasy, canary, brainless, soulless, idiotic comedy. What is it about? A man tries not to have sex for 40 days? What's the big deal? And. especially, why all these Catholic references and mockery? Why citations from the Scripture, and all in a wrong way? Is it all fun to see an erected penis and all those nude breasts? And the flowers sex scene! It is so crude, artificially passionate, but simply pathetic. Josh did not live to the requirements here. He sizzles here, and all the rest are mediocre. It is not recommended to anyone.
