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

August 26, 2010
Mildly amusing Josh Hartnett sex comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 26, 2006
Lehmann and screenwriter Rob Perez milk this idea for everything it's worth.
February 3, 2006
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.

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

January 7, 2004
They could have easily made yet another gross-out comedy, but instead the laughs are born of clever writing and likable characters.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
June 8, 2003
Finds a way to present a light-hearted sexual comic fairy tale, then derails itself with bad romantic comedy fallbacks.

February 8, 2003
This movie was about the most excruciating hour and a half I've endured recently.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
December 8, 2002
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.

November 12, 2002
It's a collection of guy humor, no more and no less.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
November 4, 2002
In places 40 Days is actually quite witty but one can't help feeling that both Hartnett and Lehmann ... deserve better than this.

October 15, 2002
Mean-spirited, ugly little movie.

September 20, 2002
The movie reminded me of a beer commercial during a football game, with about as much depth but not nearly the wit.

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

September 16, 2002
Hartnett's pitch-perfect sexual panic can be hilariously funny.
September 13, 2002
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
August 30, 2002
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.

August 26, 2002
Hartnett and Sossamon resonate a natural chemistry that infuses this mixed affair with uncommon humanism and sex appeal.
