Nicole broke up with Matt months ago and is now engaged to someone else. He’s very good-looking and has no trouble finding other lovers, but that doesn’t help because he’s still obsessed with wanting her back. Then he gets the inspiration that swearing off sex for Lent (all forms of sexual activity, even kissing or masturbation) will give him the perspective he needs. So of course a few days later he meets a woman and they fall in love. Now Matt sees his vow as a personal matter, and won’t even tell her about it, but his friends think otherwise, and now the complications begin…
From the Gallery
- Ashton Kutcher and Katie Holmes were originally set to play the roles of Matt and Erica. They both dropped out due to scheduling conflicts.
- Among the adult videotapes that Matt keeps in his wardrobe there are these titles: Midnight Tease (1994), Emmanuelle: First Contact (1994) (TV), ‘Penthouse: Dear Diary’, Penthouse: Pet of the Year & Friends (1999) (V), ‘Penthouse: The Ultimate Pet Games’, ‘Banging Wood’, ‘In Diana Jones and the Temple of Poon’ and ‘Wet Slappin”.
- When Matt and Erica first meet at the laundromat, Erica is wearing a t-shirt that says “Türkiye” (Turkey) and has the map of Turkey on it. She’s clearly wearing a t-shirt bought as a souvenir to give the idea that she has nothing else left to wear.
