Samuel L. Jackson,
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
I gave this movie a 3 out of 10. While I was tempted to give it a one, I just didn't have the heart to and figured that 3 is only halfway between AWFUL and okay. I would've given it the 1 except for the fact that it's not Josh Hartnett's fault if some studio totally miscast him and also that I love Shannyn Sossaman as she's always so real and her own thing. If I was voting without those two in mind, I'd definitely have gone for 1, or if possible less than zero! The director made the most lackluster, unlaughable comedy that I've seen in so long that I can't remember another movie to bury below this one. And who the hell wrote this? What were they thinking? I mean the idea of a young guy in todays world trying to go celibate for over a month could have been an interesting premise, but instead it just comes across as completely, utterly, absolutely lame. Both Harnett and Sossaman give it their best, but Hartnett's strength certainly does not lie in comedy, at least not thus far in the evolution of his career, and Sossaman, God bless her, can't be expected to save a movie that fails left, right and center and everywhere in between. Usually, I'm a bit of softie and give films more of a break than a lot of users but I've given this movie as much slack as I possibly can. I would not even recommend this movie for rental. In fact, I'll take it one step further. I strongly suggest you don't even waste your time watching it for free on cable. It's an hour and change that you'll never get back of your life.
A dud from start to finish. Period.
