This week, instead of a newer DVD, I chose to watch "What's your Number." Really, none of this week's new releases looked good, and I was in the mood for an easy movie, and you can't really go wrong with a chick flick for that.
"What's your Number," was definitely worth the DVD cost. It was funny, it had a good plot and of course it was predictable. That's what you expect in the feel good chick flick.
The film stars Anna Faris, who plays the ditzy funny blonde role perfectly in most of her projects. I loved her in the older flick "Just Friends" that she did years ago with Ryan Reynolds. "House Bunny" wasn't one of my favorites, but I certainly like Faris in it.
In "What's Your Number," Faris plays Ally Darling, a young woman down on her luck in career and starting to feel like she will never find her true love.
After reading a magazine article, Ally finds out the average number of men a woman sleeps with before finding true love is 10.5. She freaks out because at that point her special number is 19, and will soon be 20.
Instead of continuing a search for a new Mr. Right, Ally starts backtracking, thinking that maybe one of the 20 men is her real true love.
She recruits the help of neighbor Colin Shea, played by Chris Evans. Colin, who has commitment issues himself, to help find her old flames.
You see where I'm going with this yet?
Ally embarks on a journey to the past, with some awkward reunions, some strange ones and eventually finds the one she just might think is Mr. Right after all.
While not worth the cost of admission at the theater, "What's Your Number" works just fine with a blanket and a pillow on the couch.
