Ken Hanke
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Translates your average bad teen comedy into a below-average adult romantic comedy.

Mildly amusing Josh Hartnett sex comedy.

Combustible Celluloid

Lehmann and screenwriter Rob Perez milk this idea for everything it's worth.

EmanuelLevy.Com

This tedious romantic romp is based on a single idea--a hunk (Josh Hartnet) abstaining from sex for the duration of Lent--extended to the limits of a feature-length picture.

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

Even by the relatively relaxed standards of teen sex, or no sex, farces, 40 Days and 40 Nights is painful to watch.

Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)

They could have easily made yet another gross-out comedy, but instead the laughs are born of clever writing and likable characters.

Jeffrey Chen
Window to the Movies

Finds a way to present a light-hearted sexual comic fairy tale, then derails itself with bad romantic comedy fallbacks.

This movie was about the most excruciating hour and a half I've endured recently.

This film would've been a lot funnier if the filmmaker's had shown the slightest bit of imagination in terms of the plot's comic possibilities.

It's a collection of guy humor, no more and no less.

November 12, 2002

In places 40 Days is actually quite witty but one can't help feeling that both Hartnett and Lehmann ... deserve better than this.

Mean-spirited, ugly little movie.

Movie Metropolis

The movie reminded me of a beer commercial during a football game, with about as much depth but not nearly the wit.

| Original Score: 4/10

One half is a characteristic sex farce, the other a surprisingly genuine and amiable romance.

Hartnett's pitch-perfect sexual panic can be hilariously funny.

Forrest Hartman
Reno Gazette-Journal

A sex comedy starring Josh Hartnett is almost guaranteed a mainstream following. But that hasn't kept Lehmann from giving 40 Days the look and feel of a spirited, independent comedy.

| Original Score: 3.5/4

Brent Simon
Entertainment Today

A slight but enjoyable-in-the-moment cataloging of one guy's battle with libido... [that] never manages -- or, sadly, seems to aspire -- to anything more than breezy diversion.

Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Hartnett and Sossamon resonate a natural chemistry that infuses this mixed affair with uncommon humanism and sex appeal.

Given its drastically contrived nature, the script gets further than I expected.
