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 »

Don't you ever feel like you just keep meeting the same exact people over and over? You know, like people that went to *this* kind of college and...
And now in *that* kind of job, right?
Yeah. I wanna have a party with a list on my door of all my friends and friends of friends, and if you're on that list, or know somebody on that list, then you cannot come in.
How do you know I am not on that list?
Nobody on that list would have talked to me like you did last week. Or *not* talked to me.

Ironically, this very heterosexual "masterpiece" is set in San Francisco and follows prettyboy Josh Hartnett doing his very best not to have sex for 40 days. From a medical viewpoint, it would have been interesting for the director and writer to have explored it with medical undertones.
I'm certain that sooner or later Mr. Hartnett will "breakout" and the world will experience his unique acting talent. Alas, 40 Days is not that vehicle. Hartnett can not hold this picture together at all. The supporting cast is terrible as well. Outside of a handful of comic scenes - the movie is a waste. And, a direct slap at the Catholic Church, which is not necessary.
