Nicole broke up with Matt months ago and is now engaged to someone else. Hes very good-looking and has no trouble finding other lovers, but that doesnt help because hes 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 wont even tell her about it, but his friends think otherwise, and now the complications begin...

We have taken some photos of "40 Days and 40 Nights". They represent actual movie quality.
I've spent way too long reading everyone else's reviews.I recall having watched this about a year ago and not being too impressedwith it. The one thing that most people seem to be complaining about isJoshHartnett's apparent lack of comedic talent (although i didn't find thispersonally). It just struck me that Ashton Kutcher could have also playedthis role perfectly. I think he's got that whole, "desparate" look,totallynailed.As for suspending disbelief when watching films, i think the floatingabove the boobs scene was just so bizarre, that i still don't know whetherit was funny or just plain sad.The second time i saw this movie (sigh) was at a birthday. EVERYONEkindof had this dead-bat look on their faces....so hmmmm... I personally likeJosh Hartnett so i'm gonna hope for third time lucky and watch it again.Ohoh...i hear someone say. 6/10
I don't know why people would care about this movie. The actors arestupid the story is more stupid and so bad. If you wanna sleep this isthe movie for you.It doesn't make any sense plus the ending was sopredictable and empty.I don't care about a story like this and i guess no one wants to seethis movie at all.Where are all the good movies? We're filled with bad movies these daysand this one is the best worst movie...I Wanna see some good movies from now not some stupid teen comedy who'sdefinitely not funny at all.
An enjoyable comedy, 40 Days and 40 Nights, brings to the screen the story of a young man who decides to take an oath of abstinence for Lent following his painful break-up with his girlfriend. Josh Hartnett, Paulo Costanzo (who is amazing in his respective role and pretty much steals the show), and the rest of the cast carry out their performances very well. The setting, the plot, the dialogues, the humor, and the music are all good.40 Days and 40 Nights is probably not a movie you would want to add to your collection, and though quite silly at times, it will surely put you in a good mood and provide for an evening's entertainment.
The only good thing really I can say about 40 Days and 40 Nights is thesoundtrack, especially the use of Recondita Armonia(from Tosca)performed the wonderful Jussi Bjorling. The rest though is a mess. Thescenery is decent, but the editing could have been much tighter and thephotography more fluid. Josh Hartnett and Shannon Sossaman are charmingto look at, but they are rather awkward and never are believabletogether. It's not their fault though, they struggled with a flatpredictable story, a bad smutty script, uneven pacing and especiallyshallow characters. What spoilt this movie the most was the ending,which is the most terrible and most insulting ending I've seen in along time. In conclusion, an awful movie. 1/10 Bethany Cox
This movie was a little bit disapointing when i saw it. People kept on saying how funny it was but i found it sort of boring. The plot was ok and the love story was pretty good but still, It really could have been better. The girl's profession in the story was kind of weird. All in all, this movie was ok...
this movie was soo good i loved it josh hartnett is soo hot
40 Days and 40 Nights is a one joke comedy that is pretty funny. As thesame joke wears on though, the film becomes tiresome. The script lacks;butthe performances make up for it. Josh Hartnett gives another excellentperformance -- but the real stars are the two GORGEOUS women: ShannynSossamon and Vinessa Shaw.Young adults looking for a sex comedy -- with plenty of sex and nudity --this is your film. People looking to laugh a lot, try something else andwait for this one on video.
This movie is so great and it is one of my favorites! i didn't really no who Josh Harnett was until this movie came out and he did a wonderful job making sure I knew who he is!
"40 Days and Nights" - The story line isn't too believable, but you'll laugh your ass off. This is a seriously funny movie.
Okay, so I had to go see this movie based on plot alone, and I wasn'tsurprised to find that I liked it a lot.The acting was well done and the characters were pretty well written... asalways shows by their realistic feel.Dialog was quick witted and fast paced, but you come to expect that fromtheMTV generation.All in all, actually worth my hard earned cash.
Ok, I'm going to be VERY honest here. The only reason I sat through this entire film was because, after seeing her in `A Knights Tale', I became obsessed with Shannyn Sossamon. She is nearly the perfect woman (OMG she is so hot) and so I'd watch her in anything. This film is sadly beneath her. The script is rather nonsensical (but most of these teen sex comedies are), but what makes it worse is that it doesn't really deliver on the `stupid funny' side of things either. I actually found most of this film rather ridiculous to the point where it was irritating. The concept of the film had promise, and it does at times make a point with regard to the differences between male and female interpretations of their own sexual needs, but overall the film remains very low-brow and somewhat ignorant of it's own message. This film just serves as an excuse for horny guys to make a lot of sex jokes and wantonly look at barely clothed (sometimes not clothed at all) women. Hey, I'm all for that as long as the film is funny. This one isn't. It isn't funny and it isn't smart. Hartnett has talent and I have always liked him as an actor, so he sold me on his character despite the many holes presented by the script. Still, the only reason to see this is for Sossamon. She is breathtaking, spunky and just entirely edible. This movie would have been far more believable had Hartnett has his way with her in the Laundromat.
Now that this movie has finally been released, we know the real reasonthatits release was delayed at least twice: it's a bomb. All that it hasgoingfor it is Shannyn Sossamon. Let's hope that she doesn't get stuck withanyblame for this, because had the script and the editing been evenmarginallydecent, she may very well have pulled this off. Her character wasn'tsupposed to add comedy, but Josh Hartnett's character is the center ofvirtually every scene that is supposed to be funny, but he was not in theleast bit funny at any time. There is plenty of blame for the directingandcasting, but as for the writing, I seriously wonder if there actually wasascript or whether the actors found themselves having to make their linesupas they went along. True, you don't expect a lot of story in this sort ofmovie, but you do expect some truly funny situations and some characterdevelopment so that you can feel for these two people and cheer when theyeventually get together. When this finally did happen, it was asanti-climatic as they could possibly have made it, which is very oddconsidering that if this movie isn't about climaxing, it isn't aboutanything. These two people meet in a Laundromat, and she tries repeatedlyto get him to talk to her, but he doesn't speak a word and won't even makeeye contact. Then, the next week, he goes back to the Laundromat andfindsher, and after about ten emotionless words of explanation, they aresuddenlysupposed to be smitten with each other? Give me a break. Shannyn, you'reasweetheart, and I want to see more of you, so please, please be more pickywith your roles in the future, because one or two more of these and yourfifteen minutes will be over almost before they started. That would be ashame.
This film 40 days and 40 nights is about our main character Matt, played byJosh Hartnett, abstaining from sex for 40 days as part of Lent in order togrow from his deprivation. In that sense, this movie fails miserably. Mattdidn't seem to get anything out of it, except get more and more desperatetoward the end. Basically, the only thing that goes on in this film is Matttrying not to think about sex, and obstacles are constantly thrown in frontof him. For the first few times, it might be mildly amusing, but to go onand on with the same jokes makes the movie tedious and pointless. Evengoing to his parent's house where they suddenly starts talking about sexpositions seem to turn him on, besides the whole situation being incrediblesince nobody ever discussed about these things in the open before this topicof Karma Sutra positions came up, it should also not turn him on hearing hisparent talk of such things. But this film doesn't know anybetter.The behavior of Matt is also at odds, since I would presume the toughestperiod would be the beginning, then once he get used to it, he would cruisehome like a monk. But the way this film treats sex is as if it is food,where the longer you are deprived of it, the worse condition you become. Toward the end, he is in full mad dash toward the finish line, as if one isrunning toward home with a full bladder, where the closer you get towardhome, the more you feel like going.The relationship with the girl he meets at the laundry is real odd, with himreturning there the next week for some unknown reason. I would think hewould forgo following up on that brief encounter for the sake of his goal.Then they have this non-sexual relationship, but it seems to indicatewithout sex, there is no relationship. Then he goes on titillating her witha flower while both of them are unclothed. If the goal is celibacy, doingthis violates the spirit of it, if not technically. Even Matt'srelationship with his last girlfriend seems at to be odd, with the blissfulmemories he had versus the vampy personality she portrays upon herapperance.I am not sure why the countdown goes to midnight, would it not be easier ifhe starts right at the point where he decides to abstain from sex? Or fromthe time he last had sex? I am not even sure what the ending indicates,since he goes on this massive 60 hour sex-fest, throwing what little conceptthis movie had out the window.
I was surfing the channels the other night and ran across this movie juststarting on one of the innumerable movie channels on my satellite lineup anddecided to watch it. 40 days and 40 nights is funny, there are severalplaces in the movie where it is hard not to laugh, not only with the goofysituations Josh Hartnett finds himself in, however, the running joke abouthe not being able to control his urges and impulses especially in light ofthe frequent attempts by his friends and colleagues to trip him up gets alittle old and annoying. His reason for his chastity is something thatleaves the audience wondering why doing it is going to help his romanticlife, and it is frustrating learning how sex driven Hartnett's characters isalong with many of the supporting cast members in the film. All in all, itwas worth watching when there as nothing more enlightenening on the tube atmidnight but reruns and infomercials, however, it would not have been amovie I would have been proud to have spent money to see, either by rentalof by going to the theater to see it.
This review is from: 40 Days and 40 Nights (DVD) If irony is indeed the master trope of the universe, as I have been claiming for several decades, then you know that as soon as Matt Sullivan (Josh Hartnett) makes a vow to stay celibate for the "40 Days and 40 Nights" of Lent, that he is going to meet the love of his life. That would be Erica Sutton (Shannyn Sossamon), who fate throws him together with at the local laundry mat. Matt knows that he is being tested. The problem is that pretty much everyone he knows is in on the cosmic joke.Matt takes his vow because his breakup with Nicole (Vinessa Shaw) has left him a wreck. He keeps bailing out on successful dates and is becoming obsessed with ceilings. He goes for comfort and advice from his brother who is studying to be a priest and practicing hearing confessions. When he sees the banners for Lent going up he takes it as a sign and swears off sex, including foreplay and self-gratification. Unfortunately, once his roommate Ryan (Paulo Costanzo) finds out the deals this becomes the prefect opportunity to use the internet to get a pool going on how long Matt can, uh, last.Now, for the sake of argument we will assume that Matt has no discernable brain activity when he is asleep (despite scenes to the contrary), so that we can have the willing suspension of disbelief to go with the film's running gag that has the hero falling part as he goes longer and longer without relief. In the real world this guy would be able to keep his vow and wake up without any major problems. But writer Rob Perez and director Michael Lehmann ("The Truth About Cats & Dogs") want to milk this guy's discomfort for everything it is worth and, unfortunately, more.It dawned on me that this movie has is clearly bifurcated into the "guy" parts and the "girl" parts and the biggest problem with "40 Days and 40 Nights" is that the two halves do not fit together (as compared to "50 First Dates," which overcomes a similar problem and combines comedy and sweetness). Matt's friends and co-workers treat his vow as a joke and/or money making opportunity. This allows for lots of jokes and some prosthetic humor that leads to the inevitable conclusion that all men are pigs.Where this film had potential was with the idea that Matt would have to date a woman without having sex, both before and after she finds out about THE VOW. However, I find it hard to believe that finding out about such a thing would really be upsetting to a woman, especially if the guy knows how to handle a flower (and Matt really knows how to handle a flower; this film must have given lots of couples ideas for similar epsiodes of flower fun). But if you stop and think about it the idea that a couple could have a good time on a date with sex or any form of physical contact has to be against just about everything Hollywood stands for (assuming, of course, they are in an upright position). I was planning on liking this 2002 comedy more, but then somebody bad does something really bad without consequences. No comeuppance. No joke at their expense. No sense of outraged expressed by another character. Nothing. I was so ticked off by that turn of events that when the film cobbled together the requisite happy ending I was not really in the mood to enjoy it. But the filmmakers do get props for coming up with a nice little gift as Matt's final act of contrition. Final Note: "40 Days and 40 Nights" was certified for 11 year old in Sweden, 12 years old in the Netherlands and Portugal, 13 year olds in Spain, 14 years olds in Brazil and the cantons of Vaud and Geneva in Switzerland, 15 year olds in the United Kingdom, Finland and Norway, 16 year olds in Argentina and in the Swiss canon of Grisons. I have no idea what to make of these numbers but they sure are interesting and make me wonder what is up with those Swiss kids in Grisons (was it the sex or the vow part they are worried about?).
This review is from: 40 Days and 40 Nights (DVD) This movie is definitely worth a watch. The premise and the execution can be corny at times, but the lessons that get through are very interesting and heartfelt. Also, the realism of the movie makes sure that this isn't just a hilarious romp through the idea of sex withdrawal, but actually deals with relationships and problems therein. Overall, the movie definitely hits the intended mark, as long as you can stomach all of the innuendo and sexuality in the piece.
I think that this movie is really great! It combines a love story with good humor to make a movie worth watching over and over again. They even use symbolism, with "tryst," so this is no pushover movie. It is entertaining, good quality, and the cast is excellent. Josh Hartnett is great; a big role for him is still yet to come, and he is the perfect person for this kind of "make you feel good" movie. Shannyn Sossamon, besides being gorgeous, is also really great. She was good in A Knight's Tale, and is also still a fledgling actress. Hopefully, I will see her in many more movies. Own this movie, and see it again and again!!! I love it.
It doesn't take much to get me to go to a movie, and I had high hopesfor a movie with a) Josh Hartnett, and b) a clever premise. I lookedforward to insightful and funny commentary about the relationshipbetween sex and love and men and women in our post-modern world. What Igot was breasts. Lots and lots of breasts. While the movie does afairly good job (by Hollywood standards) of including a panoply ofattractive women instead of a cookie-cutter ideal, the women areultimately reduced to meaningless bodies that crave the "power" thatsex supposedly gives them.WARNING: WHAT FOLLOWS IS A COMMENT ABOUT THE END OF THE MOVIE, WHICH ISSOMEWHAT RELEVANT TO THE PLOT. SO DON'T READ IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW.I could go on in that vein for hours, but what REALLY made me almostwalk out on this film is the fact that Matt, the hero, is RAPED by isex-girlfriend in the final minutes of the movie. Did nobody at thestudio recognize that act for what it is? If the gender roles werereversed in that scene, it would have totally changed the mood andcontent of the film. As it was, I kept waiting for Matt, or ANYBODY, tocall the police. Instead, movie goers get a happy ending where Matt'snew girlfriend finally FORGIVES HIM FOR BEING RAPED. Hooray forHollywood.I guess it's not even safe to go to romantic comedies anymore. Sigh.
This film definitely gets your mind on sex. I was very impressed withShannyn Sossamon. She is going to be the next big thing. A soon to behousehold name to young men between the ages of 15-50. She and JoshHartnett had some of the best on-screen chemistry I have seen in the latestof romantic twenty-something comedies.
I just didn't enjoy the premise of this film. There were some amusing scenesbut too often I groaned at the antics of the cardboard characters in thisfilm. I think the primary purpose of this film was to establish JoshHartnett as a romantic leading man. I think he can be a great one buthopefully he will get to work with better material than this in the future.He is a superb actor as evidenced by his work in Black Hawk Down, "O," andeven the critically dogged Pearl Harbor. Nevertheless, for my tastes, thisfilm rates a 5 out of 10.
