ALLY’S LOOKING FOR THE BEST EX OF HER LIFE.
Ally Darling (Anna Faris) writes down a list of the 19 men she’s had sex with and hires her womanizing neighbor (Chris Evans) to find out which one is husband material. Sounds ludicrous? It is. This is another example where the tagline is infinitely more clever than anything in the movie; every joke falls flat and the painfully predictable story is way too drawn out. Faris, meant to be cute and charming, turns annoying and the movie tries to have it both ways – being racy and surprisingly conservative.
