Format: DVD
This is a near romantic comedy centering on Alice (Dakota Johnson) who has been cared for her whole life. She breaks up with her college boyfriend Josh (Nicholas Braun) so she can live on her own...with her sister Meg the doctor (Leslie Mann) and her best friend Robin (Rebel Wilson). Robin enjoys being single and leaving her mark all over NYC and gives Alice advice. Meg doesn't want children but delivers them for a living. She has no relationships. As a subplot there is bartender Tom (Anders Holm) and Lucy (Alison Brie) who hangs out in his bar for free Wi-Fi.

Rebel brings to the screen her over-sexed outrageous personality that is always good for a laugh, if not shock value. Alice is our protagonist and is a bit on the mousey side, not being able to operate the menu on her remote. Apparently all the young single people in NYC hook-up with somebody different every night without any worry about consequences, making me feel like when I read a Playboy that the whole world is having an orgy except me.

While the film had its moments and a feel good ending, it wasn't the formula romantic comedy as there was no "Up Where We Belong" moment.

Guide: F-word. Implied sex. No nudity. Soft 4 stars

I saw this in my local supermarket for a bargain price. I had low expectations; Rebel Wilson kind of plays Rebel Wilson with tweaks but she gets away with it by being genuinely funny in this. The only other thing I'd seen Dakota Johnson in was 50 shades which wasn't exactly a triumph...

But this kind of works. A knowing comedy with some genuinely laugh out loud moments, enough unexpected stuff to keep you interested and both me and my (ex boxer) boyfriend were engaged enough in the characters to find ourselves in tears. Ok, perhaps we're just soft.

I will try not to spoil it for you but it didn't end up where I thought it would while also ending up with an ending which felt like an ending. It would have been very easy to be lazy and formulaic and it resisted that and it worked. Worth a watch. Not your typical rom com.

A better film than we thought it might be - fun and thoughtful at times. Could have been 15 minutes shorter without you noticing - felt like it was going over similar ground two thirds of the way through.

Mental candyfloss..........looks interesting and tasty but fundemantally sickly and leaving you wishing you had eaten something else.
Also I can only assume that whoever wrote the summary for Lovefilm fell asleep in the middle and woke up watching the second half of an equally dull film. As the summary did not seem to have any relation to the film......

A terrible movie. I couldn't understand the fuss. Laughed maybe twice. I love Rebel Wilson and think she carried the film. No character in this was believable. So you couldn't really get involved with the story. Basic stuff seems to have been ignored about screenwriting. Watch 'The Other Woman' instead if you want a chick flick. I was unimpressed by this.

Terrible. I caught this on a plane, and found it to be hackneyed, unbelievable and profoundly unfunny. Awful. I basically hate watched it. Although Dakota Fanning and Leslie Man were quite good onscreen the writing was rubbish, and basically a rip off of the film "He's just not that into you" but with an emphasis on being single if you want to. Ugh. Is this what tosh females have to put up with? Because I am the audience for this film and I hated it.

Bought this for a fiver. Glad I didn't pay to see it at the cinema.

Thought it would be hilarious with Rebel Wilson in it. The best parts are when she is speaking (also the sauna scene).

There is no end point to the story except she is glad she is single...

I was waiting for it to kick in but it never really did.

Its an ok film, the advert looks a lot better than it is, not sure how I feel about the story line as it chops between people briefly than focuses on just one person. I dont think it is the best thought through film but great actors.
