Am I too conservative to think that, albeit one may be unlucky in love and subsequently had a few partners on the way, 20 lovers is not something to jump up and down with joy for? Regardless of the moral dilemma, the jokes are not particularly funny and if it was not the only thing playing on the plane, I would not chose to watch it.
