40 Days and 40 Nights (2002)

40 Days and 40 Nights (2002) [dir. Michael Lehmann]

Biospoilers
Two quick notes on this flick: First there is a computer-degenerated bird voice near the end of the film that is incredibly familiar, but something about the context and/or the way in which it has been manipulated leaves it hanging on the end of my tongue. The species may or may not be out of context, but (with a nod to recently departed Robert Moog) whatever species it is is not known for carrying a synthesizer around with it. The second instance, and one for which the dear audience-member may make their own decision about whether authenticity is necessary, occurs in a hallucination as Josh Hartnett's character is gliding over a field of mammary glands and encounters a flock of geese -- which quack like ducks (a familiar film failing).
