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.

In despair at the state of his life, a very sexually active young man vows to give up sex for lent and then meets the girl of his dreams.
The main idea of this movie was so intriguing, I decided to watch it: a very sexually active young man is so frustrated by his life that he decides to give up sex for lent then meets the girl of his dreams. It provides an opportunity to explore ideas: the true value of sex in a relationship, questions of openness and honesty. Will the girl be understanding and patient? How will other people react? The movie actually meets all these expectations but apart from the man and the girl themselves (to a certain extent) it does it in such a crude destructive way as to spoil the experience. It has its moments, but the humour just didn't work for me.
