40 Days and 40 Nights Reviews
This film is so dumb and so sexist; Matt is heavily discouraged by those around him, especially his roomate Ryan (Paulo Constanzo) who believes what he is doing is stupid. 40 Days and 40 Nights brings up the whole double standards thing; its ok for women to abstain for sex for long periods of time, but if men abstain from sex it's seen as abnormal. I just kept thinking why is this such a big deal? I actually admire guys who don't go hopping into bed with a girl straight away and actually want to get to know a girl. In this day and age it's easier to get sex than a date, call me old fashioned. We live in a society obsessed with sex and this film epitomises that. It's sad really. For a film that tries to tackle society and men's obsession with sex, the film obsesses about lack of sex. This film really makes waiting a few dates for a sex into such a big deal!
This film is badly acted, badly filmed and badly written. It's more like a soft porno meets low budget flick with pretty but unsuccessful actresses only getting roles as slutty girls. To be honest apart from Josh Hartnett I've never heard of the rest of these actors in the film. I found the whole storyline pathetic and stupid. This is a film that only drunken frat boys who feel pressurised by their mates to have sex with as many girls as possible, will relate to. You can tell that this is a low budget disaster. FYI the soundtrack sucks! I got so fed up of this film that I didn't even make it to the end.
I love Josh Hartnett but I didn't love this film.
