40 Days and 40 Nights stars Josh Hartnett as Matt, a Web designer who gives up screwing for Lent. The Catholic League isn't happy that the semiautobiographical script by Rob Perez uses the period of Lenten fast to set up a one-joke sex farce. It doesn't help that Matt begins his crusade by winking at a crucifix and saying, "Dude." After Matt meets a hottie, Erica (Shannyn Sossamon), his friends take bets on how long he can collect bodily fluids without shooting the works. Yup, director Michael Lehmann, far from the glory days of Heathers, has made a movie about a hard-on, in which he relentlessly pounds a flaccid premise.
