Avoid at all costs

It's risky to title a movie like a self-help book, because the audience may actually expect to learn something by watching the story unfold. The bad news is, if you're seriously looking for a guide on how to be a single lady, you'd gain more by listening to Beyonce.

'How to be Single' centres around Alice, played by Dakota Johnson ('Fifty Shades of Grey'), and her transition into post-breakup life in New York City. Once she arrives at her new job she becomes fast friends with Rebel Wilson ('Pitch Perfect'), a guru on the single way of life. This involves a lot of partying, drinking, and waking up in random people's bedrooms, all to a soundtrack of Izzy Azalea and Taylor Swift. You get the picture.

Romcom staple Leslie Mann plays Alice's older and supposedly wiser sister. This character goes from hating children to booking herself a sperm-donor online, in the space of about a week. Another subplot, which has very little to do with the main story, involves Alison Brie ('Community') who is also looking for love in the Big Apple. Instead of the partying/one-night-stand formula, she devises an online dating algorithm to find the perfect man, with some pretty bad results.

The central message of the plot is confusing, and changes throughout the film. The protagonists develop relationships with around fifteen men between them, which becomes quite hard to keep track of, and also leaves us wondering whether any of the women are ever truly single for more than a day at a time.

The trailer for this movie does a good job of making it look like a decent enough comedy. Rebel Wilson has to be given credit for some of her one-liners and stunts, but the big problem is that the few jokes from the advert are by far the best in the whole script. The rest of the time, there's a truckload of weak, over sexualised jokes that just don't serve their purpose. In other words, if the trailer doesn't make you laugh, the full 2 hour feature may just make you cry. If you do end up seeing this, a good way to make yourself laugh is to imagine you're watching one of those 'bad lip reading' videos. The dialogue in many of the scenes is quite literally on that same level of obscurity.

At this time of year, cinemas are chock-full of Oscar nominated films that work hard to deliver you quality entertainment. Amongst them, this sticks out like a sore thumb. I did my best to enjoy this movie, because it does try to be funny. But like your uncle who tries to stay hip and relevant by using Facebook, the results are cringeworthy and frankly, a little bit creepy.

Such a sad movie

My God, what a terrible movie. I know that I shouldn't have high standards when it comes to rom-coms, and trust me mine are super low, but this one hits rock bottom. It is so condescending and sexist that I had a real hard time watching it to the end (I've watched it with a couple of friends so that made me stay). I can actually enjoy trashy films that are so terrible that they are awesome, but this one actually tries to make a point and it fails miserably. The writing is terrible, the acting is terrible, even New York can't help it (and that says a lot). If you are looking for a rom-com, do yourself a favor and skip this one. And then send me a "Thank you" note for those 90 minutes of your life that would gone to waste (plus millions of brain cells you would lose in the process).

Not impressed

I am finding that the more movies I watch with Dakota Johnson just leads to disappointment. Is it just me or is there no emotion in her face when she acts.

The movie trailer gets the audience pumped up for a romantic comedy. Super pumped and thought this is going to be hilarious. There were funny parts, but it left me disappointed and frustrated in the end.

For example the love Tom has for Lucy. If a guy truly felt like he did(cant get her off his mind). It wouldn't take him 3 months to try and talk to her). Lucy felt something as well for Tom, even for a moment when they kissed. Now a girl that is obsessed with finding a guy wouldn't have just dropped it. It would be running in her head repeatedly, whether creating something that wasn't there or convincing herself it was nothing.

Something positive about this movie is it did show all different aspects of relationships and how people feel. as well as majority of women jump to soon and forget their wants/needs just to please a man.( hence the saying you have changed). Men do it too we pretend to be someone we are not to please someone else.
