About the Movie

An outrageously sexy comedy starring Josh Hartnett and Shannyn Sossamon. 40 days and 40 nights is another hilarious hit from the producers of Notting Hill and Bridget Jones' Diary! On the heels of a disastrous breakup and a string of unfulfilling romantic conquests, Matt Sullivan (Hartnett) yearns to become a better, more complete person. In the midst of his despair, he chooses to test himself by making a vow of no sex whatsoever for 40 days and 40 nights! With everyone betting he won't finish... and a seductive new girl in his life (Sossamon)'s all Matt can do to just hold on! Fun, fresh, and wildly entertaining- you'll agree with critics everywhere who found this sexy comedy adventure totally irresistible!

Pretty good!

It doesnt seem like it would be good, but it was! worth renting for sure!

Great Movie!

Honestly I am a very harsh critic of film because I am a filmmaker... but this movie has a soft spot in my heart. I really like the main actors, wish I could see more of them... This is a funny sexual romantic comedy. I think it stereotypes a bit, but truly, real life is full of people that actually mimic such stereotypes. I watch this film maybe two to three times a year because it is entertaining and I don't have to wrap myself in it to understand it. It is simple, beautiful and funny. FIVE STARS!

Great movie!

This was a great movie, and I was/am shocked that Shannyn hasn't been in more things since the movie came out, she was great in this. A really fun romantic comedy. Ignore the Tomato rating, this was easily a 4 out of 5 star movie. Easily!
