What’s Your Number is a predictable romantic comedy. You know right from the start that Ally Darling (Anna Faris) will end up with her next door neighbor Colin Shea (Chris Evans). They are an unlikely couple who started out as strangers and got closer as the movie progressed. Then they realize that the right one is in front of them the whole time.
A layer is added into the plot in connection to the number of sexual partners a woman has in her life. Ally believes that the guy of her dream is one of her exes because she already slept with 20 guys and you can’t exceed that number. She asks Colin to check on her exes to see if any of them have improved his life after breaking up with her.
Meeting up with her ex-boyfriends resulted into awkward situations but don’t expect them to be funny all the time. I laughed a little but I expected more from an Anna Faris movie. The romantic moments seemed over the top.
What’s with the number anyway? The idea is a hard-sell for me and What’s Your Number revolved around it. Maybe this is the reason why I didn’t enjoy the movie. It turned out that she didn’t sleep with one of her exes and Colin is her 20th.
Eileen (Heather Burns): Because 69s are for when you’re 17 and you’re trying to cram everything in at once before your parents get home.
What’s Your Number is a raunchy romantic comedy about a dumb girl looking for her prince. With a predictable storyline, the director and writers could have made it entertaining at least. Anna Faris and Chris Evans look like they had fun doing the movie. But I can’t say the same time after watching it. It felt like a very long chick flick with boobies to keep us guys from walking out of it. Actually the video of Call Me Maybe was funnier than What’s Your Number.
