Anna Faris is Ally Darling, who after reading a magazine article that leads her to believe she's going to be forever alone, begins a wild search for the best "ex" of her life. -- (C) Official Site
The comic timing of Anna Faris is sharp as always, but it's wasted away in this predictable, boilerplate comedy.
This desperately seeking-laughs comedy stars Anna Faris, a comedian with a lot of quirk appeal, though little of it is on display.
What's Your Number unavoidably plays like a mash-up of the recent romantic comedies that it should have beat to market.
By trying to remain romantic comedy audience-friendly, it just purees the whole thing into a stew no one would want to eat.
With her sweet ditz openness, honk of a voice, blonde pixie looks and absolutely fearless comic flair, Anna Faris should be a superstar. But no one's found the right bottle for her elixir.
For comedy connoisseurs it isn't news that Anna Faris is a largely untapped treasure. The melancholy question that lingers on the way out of the vulgar yet retrograde What's Your Number? is: Whither Anna?
What's Your Number? isn't necessary as a romantic comedy should be. It goes for the cheap way out at every turn and uses Faris as a punching bag for acquiring jokes.
Lighting, camerawork, and editing are all a slapdash mess, one that further hinders the actors trying their best to get through this failed hookup of a comedy.
Once again Anna Faris manages to be the best thing in another not very good Anna Faris movie.
Too similar to, and inferior to, "Bridesmaids"
