What’s Your Number? is so bad that I’m reluctant to waste my time writing much of a “review”. If you choose to see it anyway, it’s all on you – but feel free to post your thoughts in the comments section below!
The trailer promised a light-hearted chick flick. But it took less than ten minutes for most everyone at the relatively small press screening to realize that we’d all been hoodwinked. As a romantic comedy, it was neither romantic nor funny.
Here’s the gist: Anna Faris plays Ally Darling, a promiscuous twenty-something who freaks out after reading a magazine article that claims anyone who’s had more than 20 relationships has missed their chance at true love. Ally hires her (even more) promiscuous neighbor, Colin (Chris Evans), to track down her 20 ex-boyfriends and one-night stands so she can revisit their romantic potential.
I wish I could say “spoiler alert” before letting you know that Ally and Colin fall for each other, but you’ll see it coming from a mile away. The script is so predictable – and bad – that it’s almost funny.
Bottom line: the only number you should concern yourself with in relation to this movie is 106… as in 106 minutes of your life that you’ll never get back.
