Review by :Kate Oliver
Ahhhh love in the city of New York. Or in college. Or just in general. I love that this is a hoot. It’s a take on one woman’s perspective. No, I lie. It’s a take on several perspectives, male and female. This is more of the speed that I like to see Dakota Johnson. I recently watched Need for Speed. Yikes. Anyhow, I am pretty sure this happens to many people. Go to college, meet someone, date for awhile then you either get married or break up. Did you find yourself though? No, well, you should. I can argue for soul searching (I did it and I am happily married to my right guy). Everyone has mixed feelings about it. Some people just know like Josh (Nicholas Braun) in the film. Others need to be like Alice (Dakota Johnson) or Robin (Rebel Wilson)- a free spirit. Or like Tom – the playboy (Anders Holm) or Lucy (Alison Brie) – the woman searching for the “Mr. Right” to marry. She reminds me of Charlotte York from Sex in the City. Or you just need to be like Meg (Leslie Mann), career first.
The perfect girl date movie. Perfect for the single ladies wanting to celebrate together. SO MUCH LAUGHING in this one. Rebel Wilson is my favorite. She kind of reminds me of me, a little bit. The party animal that I was. More like dancing animal.
By the way, that day-after-partying-all-night remedy, ON POINT!
A couple things – this is a Ladies Movie. Don’t bring your children. There are quite a bit of innuendos happening here. Fellas, if you take your lady to this movie this weekend, points scored!
Anders Holm has great abs in this movie, among other things. Heck, my brother laughed a lot!
