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

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.
June 8, 2003
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.

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.
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.
July 20, 2002
You may feel like taking a vow of abstinence yourself -- at least from Hollywood youth-sex comedies.
July 15, 2002
This is a movie that longs to be naughty, but never knows how to go far enough to truly surprise.
June 6, 2002
Hartnett may grow into a major film star someday with better material, but this is a one-night stand he'll want to forget.
June 5, 2002
So wildly incoherent in tone, ambition and character motivation that it's hard to believe it was ever written out in longhand from start to finish.
June 3, 2002
Robert Perez's screenplay takes largely predictable roads, most of them leading straight to Jigglesville, with detours along the way to Viagra Falls and Bulgeburg.
May 30, 2002
Raunchy dialogue and sexually explicit sequences overshadow the film's slight hint that factors other than sex might also be important in human relationships.
