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
When Matt and Erica first meet at the laundromat, Erica is wearing a t-shirt that says "Türkiye" (Turkey) and has the map of Turkey on it. She's clearly wearing a t-shirt bought as a souvenir to give the idea that she has nothing else left to wear. See more »

I've jerked off three times since lunch. I still got this fucking hard-on.
Way to go, Mr. Anderson. Two more and you break the company record.

I wasn't expecting too much with this movie, but I was expecting more than what I got. Watching this, I couldn't help but think "I've seen this so many times before." Josh Hartnett (who did pretty good with what he was given), plays a heart-broken guy who swears off ALL forms of sex for Lent in order to gain a better perspective on life. Shannyn Sossaman plays his love interest, which makes his vow of celibacy all the more tougher to handle. Can he do it??? Does it matter??? This movie was predictable and unfunny. The secondary characters are nothing more than annoying "American Pie" rejects, the character of Erica is in SERIOUS need of a hair wash and comb, and, well, it's just not very funny.
