From the producers of NOTTING HILL and BRIDGET JONES'S DIARY comes 40 DAYS AND 40 NIGHTS - America's first no sex comedy. It stars Josh Hartnett (PEARL HARBOR) and Shannyn Sossamon (A KNIGHT'S TALE).
When Matt Sullivan's (Josh Hartnett) last big relationship ended in disaster, his heart's been aching ever since for another but his commitment's been lacking.
Then came Lent, that time of year when everybody gives something up. That's when Matt, a guy who's never been able to finish anything, decides to go where no man's gone before and make a vow to have NO sex - whatsoever - for 40 straight days. That includes: No touching. No kissing. No foreplay. No fooling around. No self-gratification. No nothing.
At first he has everything under control, until the woman of his dreams, Erica (Shannyn Sossamon), walks into his life. Now, with everyone betting he won't finish what he started, he's just trying to hold on, and hoping she's willing to hold out...
