We gave it a B-

Let’s see, Josh Hotnett is going without sex for more than a month? Screwy! That’s the premise of this romantic comedy from director Michael Lehmann (”Heathers”…and ”Hudson Hawk”). In a just-been-dumped funk, Hartnett’s Romeo abstains for Lent; so, naturally, the girl of his dreams picks this moment to saunter into his life, raising important issues of religious faith and free will. Or not. (March 1)
