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
Matt gives up sexual contact etc. for Lent hence 40 days and forty nights, but the season of lent (Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday) is 46 days and 46 nights because Sundays are not counted. If Matt gave sex up for Lent, he would go 46 days and nights in a row without sex. If (as is listed at the bottom of the screen as "day # blank") he only went 40 days and 40 nights, he would be cutting out the Sundays and could do what he so desired with those days. See more »
[as she's getting thrown out of Matt's apartment]
Matt, I am... so mad that I have... I have to tell you. Watching you standing up for yourself like this has never made me so... so... hot. I *like* this. Where have *you* been? You can slam that door in my face if you want, but I'll just be on the other side, even hotter. Holy Hell! Slam that door in my dirty, bad, bad face. Oh, God, Matt, slam it!

If you are one of the few men out there that fit the stereotype that this movie so desperately tries to push, you'll like this movie.
If you are under the age of 12 and have no clue about adult sexual
relationships, you'll like this movie.
If you are one of the disturbed women who can't stay away from these
stereotypical men, you'll like this movie.
For the other 90% of us, this movie is nice in some places, truly funny in other places, but mostly juvenile and ignorant. Of course, this wasn't hard to predict since the entire basis of the movie is out-of-touch with reality (including its dot- com-centric focus a couple of years after the bubble burst), but I still hoped that there would be more substance and less fluff.
Nope. For example, in the middle of the movie the main romantic sub-plot is
choked out and forgotten in a seemingly never-ending stream of immature
scenes showing the main character's struggle with his sex drive and coworkers. It even sounds funnier the way I type it than it actually was.
Believe me, there is way too much fluff and filler in this movie, and it's more of a pre-teen boy's movie than a "Romantic Comedy". I'd compare them to some of
the ones I remember watching at that age, but they were that forgettable. This movie will be forgotten, too -- don't waste your valuable time.
