New York City is full of lonely hearts seeking the right match, and what Alice, Robin, Lucy, Meg, Tom and David all have in common is the need to learn how to be single in a world filled with ever-evolving definitions of love.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
One of best American rom-com in 2010's. Although "How to Be Single" is ROMANTIC comedy & main-stream film, this depicts how to stand by yourself & how proud of standing by yourself without lover or something from Forget-Fifty-Shucks-Ouch-Gruuuu Dakota Johnson's perspective. Cinematography with some breathtaking magical moments, always good Rebel Willson, surely there're some mistakes but I DEEPLY loved.
A second rate SATC-clone with a very uneven tone and script that does not know what it wants to be. Every conceivable cliché is thrown into the mix and some parts work while most don´t. The cast is quite good but is trapped with mostly useless stereotypes and while some story beats let them find some room to breathe it is mostly acting by numbers.
Saved considerably by a cast of chasimatic performances, but a film that's a real staple of why young people's relationships are in such shambles. There's no talking, no honest expression of emotions, and no kind of attempt to get to know anybody; it's just carnality and acting rather than talking. Some may find it perfectly fine, and I'm not one to tell others how to live. I just find it disturbing.
Not so funny as i expected but still there was some good moments. Also it's not so boring and the soundtrack it's just ok, energizing every shot when it's used properly.
I do love Alison Brie. I kinda hate Dakota Johnson.
Anyway it's a 6 out of 10. It could have been worse but fortunately some cute emoments save it to at least a 6.
I can remember seeing the initial trailer for this movie and thought it wouldn't be that good or interesting, and while it is the typical love story that you would expect in 2017, it does have a different bent to it that doesn't follow the typical tropes of a movie like this. I enjoy Rebel Wilson and Dakota Johnson the most in their respective roles and the story has a nice arc. Good for a night in by oneself.
Going to watch this movie I thought to myself it's just gonna be those tacky, cheap laugh movies. IT IS, but it also has those great moments where you realized maybe the single life isn't that bad and you have to learn to love yourself & treat yourself better, and f^*(ck men!!
