    40 Days and 40 Nights
    Following memorable roles in the military action-adventures Pearl Harbor (2001) and Black Hawk Down (2001), young actor Josh Hartnett is propelled to romantic leading man status with this semi-autobiographical comedy from screenwriter Rob Perez. Hartnett stars as Matt Sullivan, a young man smarting over the bitter breakup of his most recent relationship. With Lent approaching, Matt decides to observe the 40-day tradition by abstaining from all sexual contact, including self-gratification. Once his odyssey of discipline has begun, he meets the girl of his dreams, while his ex begins campaigning to get him back. Co-starring Shannyn Sossamon, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Vinessa Shaw, 40 Days and 40 Nights inspired another round of controversy between distributor Miramax and the Catholic League, which accused the film of being a "vulgar parody" of Lent. The League previously protested the company's releases of Priest (1994) and Dogma (1999). ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

      Subtle humor

      • Top 50 ContributorTop 50 Contributor

      40 Days and 40 Nights stars Josh Hartnett who makes a pact with himself to give up something he's addicted to for 40 days. His friends find out and have formed a pool and are now trying to make him cave and things get even worse when he meets the perfect girl and his personal pact interferes with their relationship. This movie is similar to American Pie even though the story is completely opposite. The humor in this movie is much more subtle than the American Pie series but I still think it's a very funny movie.

      good romantic comedy


      Good romance comedy. The story line is humorous and interesting. The movie also has an element of suspense which is interesting (whether or not he will last the 40 days). This is a "chick flick" that most guys will actually like.

      Great Romantic COmedy


      Unique approach to finding love here, where Josh Hartnett agrees to abstain from certain activities for 40 days for a bet. Of course, this is when he is tempted most. Very funny, would recommend this movie to any teenager and up!

      Would not play, I bought this as a gift for my wife. I have had several Blu-Rays as of late that were like this. I bought this on sale and it isn't worth the hassle of returning it.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend
