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.

Some Laughs; Some Cringes; Make this a Rental 6/10
40 Days and 40 Nights is a one joke comedy that is pretty funny. As the same joke wears on though, the film becomes tiresome. The script lacks; but the performances make up for it. Josh Hartnett gives another excellent performance -- but the real stars are the two GORGEOUS women: Shannyn Sossamon and Vinessa Shaw.
Young adults looking for a sex comedy -- with plenty of sex and nudity -- this is your film. People looking to laugh a lot, try something else and wait for this one on video.
