About a guy whose life didn't quite turn out how he wanted it to and wishes he could go back to high school and change it. He wakes up one day and is seventeen again and gets the chance to rewrite his life.
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
Admittedly not a previously big Josh Hartnett fan, but I went to watch this movie on a whim, and am glad I took the plunge. It was good to see Hartnett in a comedy role and think he faired very well. There was such a neat innocence in some of the lines he delivered, where they could have been really crass. Some of the sight gags were a little gross and some a bit disturbing, but on the whole I was pleasantly surprised, and the good stuff more than made up for it. The cast was great.. of which I recognised Hartnett, Sossomon and of course Griffin Dunne. However, I really wished more time was spent with Hartnetts co-workers. I would have loved to have seen their characters filled out more. I must admit I was taken with the actor, Chris Gauthier, that played Mikey (I actually stayed to the watch the end credits to take note of his name) and when the romance between the leads became a little long, really wanted to see Mikey and the co-workers back at the internet office. I would be interested in other works this actor has appeared in. More time spent with the actor who played Chris would have been good too, in fact all the internet guys. That aside, I am looking forward to the release of the dvd, and will be buying a copy as soon as its available.
