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

It gets worse and worse the longer it runs
27 April 2003 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This movie starts out as a normal, decent, silly American comedy, however, the movie gets worse and worse the longer you watch. Towards the end it's just plain stupid. The way that people, especially the lead role, behave is completely irregular, and utterly unrealistic. Watch something else.
