Last time we posted about Muni in the movies, a lot of you reminded us about other noteworthy Muni movie appearances. Sadly, we all missed a gem: 40 Days and 40 Nights (2002), starring Josh Hartnett and Shannyn Sossamon.
In 2009, SF Appeal reviewed the movie and its Lent-time propriety: Hartnett’s character gives up any and all sexual activity for Lent, then meets a cute girl in the laundromat. I watched a little bit of the movie on TV at 1 a.m. Saturday morning, and left it on because it was 1 a.m. Saturday morning. Then, suddenly, Muni!
In scene above, the lead actors sit comfortably in a parked coach in a Muni lot, which is almost as unrealistic as Hartnett’s spic-and-span bachelor pad and his not masturbating for 40 days.
But check out more of 40 Days and 40 Nights, starring Muni:
This may have been the girlfriend who dumped him. I might have fallen asleep.
Ladies in their undies on Market Street, and a cable car!
Send us more example of Muni in the movies. A film festival might be in order!
