I've found the greater amount of movies disappoint me, but Josh Hartnett has proven himself to be one of the rare actors of Hollywood, who takes risks and can laugh at himself. This movie was upbeat, snappy writing, although not as hyperactive as "The Gilmore Girls" and moved at a great pace, not too slow, not too fast. I laughed out loud often, along with the rest of the audience.
The theme exposes how young, hip, single men look at thier own sexual needs as opposed to how we woman view sex. A handsome hunk who apparently has no problems attracting woman, Josh's character is carrying around self-imposed sexual performance baggage after being dumped by a longtime girlfriend. His humorous, Catholic roots influence his choice to vow to 40 days of total sexual abstinance for Lent, in an attempt to once again attain control over his "issues".
I thought Hartnett and his co-stars did a terrific job of portraying the real but laughable status of men's basic sexual
needs/desires. This plot plays on the recent study that revealed how men think about sex every few moments. Yes, LOTS of guys watch porn, read Playboy and gratify themselves. This is no secret, and certainly easier to hear mention of than the perversions portrayed in so many other movies.
Unknown to him at first, Hartnett's co-workers and friends take the abstinance ball and run with it as a sub plot, while we watch Josh start to suffer. Throw in a tempting and available new love interest to test his will and the sexual tension heats up.
I found this movie far less offensive than most of the regularly available crud on prime time TV and more tame than you might expect, in terms of sexuality, language etc. Each character was developed enough to make the viewer believe them.
I suppose you could call this a guy movie, but any of us women who have lived with a man, will recognize the dilemma and actions of the main character and his cohorts.

"40 Days and 40 Nights" is a crude, vulgar, at times I guess it can be described as an offensive movie. In other words it's a guy's movie lol. There's something inside me saying, it's wrong for me to like this movie. This is not a "great" movie. I know I've seen much better movies. I consider myself a filmbuff and have seen several American classics and well as several foreign films. But, still, for some reason, despite myself, I like this movie. Then again I always seem to go for movies like this. I like the "American Pie" films. I liked the first "Scary Movie". So there is a side of me that enjoys vulgar humor.
"40 Days and 40 Nights" as most people know is about a guy named Matt Sullivan (Josh Hartnett) taking a vow of celibacy for the lenght the title says. He does this because as a friend tells him "(He's) packed with issues!" He can't seem to get over his girfriend. Every other person he is with he compares to his ex, Nicole (Vinesse Shaw). But, the odd thing is, his way of trying to deal with this problem is by sleeping with them. So, he decides if he can get his mind off sex all of his problems will go away and he'll forget about his ex. But, he meets a girl, Erica (Shannyn Sossamon). Who just further tempts him and makes things worst for him.
One of the reasons I like "40 Days and 40 Nights" is that it seems to have something to say about teen dating and the importance people (of any age) have placed on sex. The film shows how that seems to be the main thing on both guys and girls mind's. There was a line in the movie that Erica gives "God!Why won't he just sleep with me!" That one line is a key line to the film. Teens and other people sometimes refer to sex as merely a casual act. Something you wouldn't even give a second thought too.

Keegan Connor Tracy (who played the Blue Fairy from ABC's TV series Once Upon a Time) lead me to this film. Thank you Keegan. 40 Days and 40 Nights is a really good romantic comedy about Matt Sullivan (Josh Hartnett) taking the vow of 40 Days and 40 Nights without sex or anything involving sex after a breakup that happened 6 months ago. Things were going great for him until he met a special girl who came into her life, Erica Sutton (Shannyn Sossamon). That's how they both fell in love and started dating. But he couldn't kiss her or have sex with her because he still was taking the vow. The film gets better and funnier when all his friends and co-workers were placing bets and how long they think Matt can go without sex. Some bet he'll make it while others don't think he's gonna go through with this. Also, it was hilarious and at the same time very very very exotic to see these women co-workers of his try to seduce him to make him crack, lose it, and see if he breaks his own vow. However, Matty boy still stayed strong and kept going days and days without sex until he reached Day 40. That's basically the plot of the film. Now listen. Don't listen to the professional critics who gave 40 Days and 40 Nights negative reviews. It was a really great movie. The motion picture had moments that were funny and moments where they felt you can relate to. It shows how men and women can think sometimes when it comes to sex. As a guy myself, I know there's no way a guy can go 40 days without sex or any form of it. As for women, seduction is their "power". But guys like me could resist them (most of them). LMAO. The point is.... go see this film. Rent it or buy it. Don't care if it's an old flick from 2002. Go watch it with your friends. You and your buddies may have some laughs about it.Read more ›
