What's Your Number (15)
Starring: Anna Faris, Chris Evans, Blythe Danner
Anna Faris, the Goldie Hawn de nos jours, plays another of her ditzy blondes in this production-line chick flick.
Here she's Ally, who reads in a magazine article – where else? – that women who've had more than 20 lovers are the least likely to find a husband. Oh no! Ally's up to 19! Will the next one be "the" one or is she doomed to a life of singledom? Chris Evans, permanently chowing on junk food, is the next-door neighbour who's keen to avert the crisis. Faris isn't a bad comedienne, but the cumulative pressure of American entitlement, unfunny sex banter and a happy ending seen from a mile off makes this anything but a pleasure. Martin Freeman provides respite – ie. five minutes of actual comedy – as one of the fortunate exes.
