Part romance, part raunch, 40 Days and 40 Nights has difficulty sticking to a consistent tone.

The joke is yanked, inflated, stretched and strung out over the film's 93 minutes.
| Original Score: 2/5

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

This is a very raunchy and explicit comedy but it is all done with sweetness and even a certain humility that keeps it from being too disgusting.
| Original Score: 3/5

Then, there's the seen-that-before scene of poor Matt walking around with a protrusion he seems blithely unaware of that seems to go to some preposterously immense proportions.

Josh Hartnett is good and I love Shannyn Sossamon I think she could become a big star, but this comedy is so wrong on so many levels.

Shows that smutty and adorable don't mix.

It's the filmic equivalent of the young men it represents -- guys who think, talk and brag about sex without ever really getting any.

A fairly perfunctory sex comedy, which is too bad because the premise is amusing.

It's just a shame that someone wasted their fluids creating a number of the people responsible for this absolute mess.

A cheap movie, false and phony, that thinks it's about moving beyond cheapness and phoniness.

less than I had hoped for...but just about what I had expected.

plays like a teen sex comedy filtered through the relative sophistication of urban twentysomething hi-tech workers

Raunchy dialogue and sexually explicit sequences overshadow the film's slight hint that factors other than sex might also be important in human relationships.

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

Lehmann, far from the glory days of Heathers, has made a movie about a hard-on, in which he relentlessly pounds a flaccid premise.
| Original Score: 3/5

Even [Hartnett] can't overcome the lameness of the movie's increasingly obvious attempts to make horniness seem funny.
