In the year of Bridesmaids
, it's hard not to compare What's Your Number?
to that funnier, better romantic comedy. Anna Faris (The House Bunny
) stars in this lacklustre film as a promiscuous woman who sets out to revisit her past boyfriends in a search for true love. This is after a magazine suggests any woman with more than 20 lovers won't be able to land a man. Issues of "slut-shaming" aside, Number
falters most from its tired writing and strained premise. Faris once again shows herself as an able physical comedian, but her character's choices never make a lick of sense. Particularly the way she bemoans finding love while ignoring the helpful, always-naked Chris Evans across the hall. With its raunchy jokes and co-ed nudity, What's Your Number?
tries very hard, but rarely scores.
