Flashback Friday-40 Days And 40 Nights (2002)

Recovering from a breakup is never easy.  Especially when we thought that our ex was the one we would spend the rest of our lives with.

Matt (Josh Hartnett) is unhappily single.  He has not gotten over his ex-girlfriend, who is now engaged. Matt tries to get over her, but no matter how hard he tries, she is always on his mind. In a last-ditch attempt to finally get over his ex, he decides to give up all forms of sex for Lent. Then he meets Erica (Shannyn Sossamon), who might just be the one. The problem is that Lent has just begun and trying to be celibate is only the beginning of Matt’s problems.

I have mixed feelings about this movie. On one hand, the narrative is not the cookie cutter romantic comedy. But on the other hand, the narrative is not entirely unique.

Do I recommend it? Maybe.
