Frequently Bought Together
After being dumped by his girlfriend, web designer Matt Sullivan (Josh Hartnett) begins to get panic attacks whenever he is about to have sex, and as a result decides to give it up for lent. His co-workers find this very amusing, and begin taking bets on whether Matt will be able to live up to his vow; something which proves especially difficult for the young man when he meets new girl Erica (Shannyn Sossamon) at the laundrette, and promptly falls for her. What will Erica think when she finds out about Matt's vow? And how will he fare when his ex-girlfriend decides to do her best to get him back?
Some movies are so stupid that they are depressing to watch: 40 Days and 40 Nights is one of them. Almost nothing here even remotely resembles genuine human behaviour. Matt (Josh Hartnett) is brutally dumped by his knockout ex-girlfriend, and as a result is so torn-up inside that he vows to give up sexual activity--including masturbation--for Lent. His friends and coworkers start betting on how soon he'll crack. Their scepticism is fuelled when Matt meets Erica (Shannyn Sossamon) at a laundrette. They're immediately smitten with each other, but Matt struggles to stay true to his vow, even though it threatens to founder his potential relationship with Erica. Based on this description, you might think that 40 Days and 40 Nights is a religious educational video, however, the barrage of sex gags and frequent nudity will quickly dispel this notion. --Bret FetzerSee all Product Description

So this an okay movie, mildly entertaining. Definitely geared towards men.
Until you get to the part where the main character gets raped by his ex-girlfriend.
It's okay though, he reports the rape, his ex-girlfriend gets locked up and his love interest supports him through his time of need.
Wait..that doesn't happen?
Nope, he shrugs it off, his ex gets away with it and his love interest blames him for it.
Is this movie trying to say rape is okay when a man is the victim?
That because she's a woman she's not really raping him?
That victims of rape should be blamed for it?
I've never seen a film with such shady morals before this one.
Imagine giving up sex and everything sexual, and falling in love on the same day. But if that isn't bad enough, also imagine your best friend and all your work colleagues having a bet on which day you will have sex with someone. As if that wasn't bad enough, it gets spread all over the internet, and bid come in as high as $3,000, and evryone he knows tries to do everything within there power to make him fail.
It all started when Matt's last big relationship, ended in disaster, and ever since his hearts been aching and his commitment in relationships has been lacking.
Then along comes lent, so Matt decides to do the unthinkable, and go where no man has ever gone before and give up everything sexual for lent (40 Days And 40 Nights).
But does he make it or not?, that is something you will have to find out yourself.
I found the basic premise unbelievable (no really convincing reason was given as to why the guy made the vow in the first place - he wasn't even religious). I found the ongoing storyline equally unbelievable. And, to cap it all, some parts of the dialogue between the two main characters towards the end were too profound, and nigh on incomprehensible.
As a result I wasn't particularly impressed, nor satisfied with how the movie ended. So I wouldn't recommend it.
The dialogue between the characters is usually very seedy and thier outlook on sex is, like Hartnett's performance, one-dimensional. The plot chugs along at an infuriating slow rate and it's hindered by often pointless detours that were probably designed to build character but fail to do so, leaving you totally indifferent to any character and what happens to them. The ending is very shaky and leaves the film with an unresolved feeling in many ways. Sure, the film does have it's moments of comedy that are amusing, at least, but it's not enough to stop this film becoming what it is - totally unremarkable.
