40 Days and 40 Nights

“One man is about to do the unthinkable. No sex. Whatsoever. For...40 Days and 40 Nights. Growth, Self-Denial, Sacrifice.”

Lent season is coming near. Do you have any vows? Something you want to sacrifice? Though i don't think that having to sacrifice something that we want will make any difference or change anything to yourself if you didn't mean it. In my opinion, it wasn't just to sacrifice things that you like the most because you need to on that season to join our Father who sacrifice himself for us but because we really want to. Think of the movie 40 days and 40 nights, the character made a vow that he'll not have sex or anything that might lead to it on that season

40 Days and 40 Nights was a comedy film starred by Josh Hartnett. The movie was release on the 1st of March 2002 and it was written by Rob Perez and directed by Michael Lehmann.

The movie follows the life of a man named Matt Sullivan who was obsessed with his ex-girlfriend named Susie who happened to had dumped him. It has been six months since their break up but still Matt was having problems on having a relationship with other women. He talked to his brother John who happened to be on training as a priest about his sexual problems because of his obsession to his girlfriend. After some time of visiting to his brother, he later realize that Lent is about to start and one priest has told him that on Lent people do some sacrifices and so he tells John that he's going to drop sex for 40 days and 40 nights and that will help him move on and get over Nicole.

Matt told his roommate, friend, officemate named Ryan what he will do and Ryan was shocked and told some things like it was not good and it was on a man's nature and that he can't do it. The next day Ryan told everyone at their office dot-com in San Francisco what Matt plan and they started to have a bet and everyone in the office gets into it.

After some days of successful days and nights not doing sex, he goes out to do his laundry. There he met a pretty woman named Erica and planned to come back and do the laundry and see each other next week.

On dot-com, everyone are doing their best to get Matt to crack. Candy, one of his officemate cornered him in their copier room and ask talked to him. She tells him that she has a tattoo on her thighs and that she wants to put another one on the other but she's not sure what she'll put, she even showed it to Matt still Matt was strong and did not give in to the temptation. Afterwards, seeing that Matt don't want to give in Candy photocopies her ass, writes her number there and gave it to Matt.

Ryan saw Matt packing his used clothes to go to the laundry and told him that he likes Erica and asked him that wasn't it some of thing that he shouldn't do for the Lent but Matt said that their not making out they were just talking with each other. And so he goes to the laundromat and saw Erica dancing and they officially met each other. The two planned to go out on a date. Matt takes her on a bus ride all day around the city and when the night falls and Matt escorted Erica home instead of kissing her goodnight he gave her a high-five.

On the next day, he founds out about the office pool plus one of his officemate created a website for it and unfortunately it was protected by Cyber Nanny which Erica works. Matt realizes that Erica might have seen it and goes to her office and he found out that she already knows about it and that she's not happy with it.

When Erica had cooled down Matt asked her out for a dinner and there they see Matt ex-girlfriend and introduces the two with each other but Erica had realizes that the problem of Matt was a result of the two's breakup and she got angry with Matt's lies and leaves the restaurant and Matt.

Matt's co-workers are all getting desperate with the days has been cutting down and so some of his women officemates make out in-front of him, one guy crushed Viagra and put it in his orange juice but unfortunately Matt didn't drink it instead their boss did. The guy finds Matt on their supply closet and talked to him and convinces him to go to the comfort room and do what other man's do and he even gave him a dirty magazine. So Matt headed to the comfort room and go directly to one of the cubicle and he was to do the thing but he heard his boss doing it and so he doesn't do anything but instead gave the dirty magazine to his boss and climb out to the window and run to Erica's house. There they have a very erotic encounter but without touching each other instead they use the flower that Matt gave to Erica.

The next day, Matt on his way to his work hallucinates that every woman he sees don't use bra's and so he headed off to his brother's office at the church but he finds his brother kissing a nun. He goes back to their office and just sits on his station and daydream of what happened between him and Erica the other night unfortunately one of his co-workers come up to him and wakes him from his dream and told him that to get into the conference room for a meeting with their client. What he didn't know was that he get affected with his daydreaming a while ago and so when he enters the conference room it was seen by the clients and got scared and so his boss has to put it out to him.

On the last night of his vow he asked his roommate Ryan to handcuff him for him to not ruin the last night of his vow. The door was leaved by Ryan unlocked so Erica can get herself inside but Matt fall asleep and his ex-girlfriend Nicole comes up to him and did the “thing” with Matt handcuff. Erica saw Nicole came from Matt's apartment and putting it together she comes up with her own opinion with what had happened and so she leaves Matt's apartment.

Matt create something on a box for Erica. He leaves it to Erica's roommate and so when Erica got it she changes her mind and goes to the laundromat and Matt shows up and they kiss and regain their relationship.

Love doen't mean sex. You can love another person without it though some of us made is as one of the factor for their relationship be stronger still it wasn't the real meaning of love. If you only want to have sex with your partner i don't you really love her/him. What you feel is only lust not love. And that wasn't good. Love someone because you do feel it that way, because you see something in them that others don't and that you something is special on them. You feel happy, secure with them. Pain is part of loving. As the saying goes if you don't feel pain you don't feel the love towards the person. In a relationship there will be heartaches, problems that you will encounter still if both of you loves each other nothing will break that string attached to your hearts.
