In places 40 Days is actually quite witty but one can't help feeling that both Hartnett and Lehmann ... deserve better than this.
September 16, 2002
Hartnett's pitch-perfect sexual panic can be hilariously funny.
August 9, 2002
Given its drastically contrived nature, the script gets further than I expected.

You may feel like taking a vow of abstinence yourself -- at least from Hollywood youth-sex comedies.

Nothing more than a lame vehicle for teen heartthrob Josh Hartnett.
March 7, 2002
The material may be lightweight, but it's been shaped into a film that deserves to become a classic in an admittedly lightweight genre.
March 5, 2002
It has a way of wearing out what's supposed to be knockabout farce.
March 5, 2002
Squeamishly risqu teen sexcom.
March 4, 2002
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.
March 4, 2002
It won't take 40 days and 40 nights to forget this turkey.
March 1, 2002
It comes dangerously close to being America's first sex comedy without comedy.
March 1, 2002
It's not Shakespeare's Twelfth Night or anything, but it's pretty darned good!
March 1, 2002
The movie is both exhilarating and depressing. The trouble is, I can't figure out which is more important.
March 1, 2002
It does nothing to challenge the self-centredness of the smug little world it depicts, and everything to endorse it.
March 1, 2002
A fluffy, dopey, but occasionally likable romantic comedy.
March 1, 2002
The slapdash and vulgar second half ... saps the good will engendered by some funny gags and heartthrob Josh Hartnett's ... heart-tuggingly earnest performance.
March 1, 2002
It's too mild to be crass; it's clumsy.
March 1, 2002
The underpinning misogyny of 40 Days and 40 Nights is only exceeded by its cynicism.
March 1, 2002
Eyeball-gougingly awful.
March 1, 2002
The way Matt's fate plays out is consistently engaging, at once clever and insightful.
