year 3 day 137

movie: What's your number?
starring: Anna Faris, Chris Evans
genre:Comedy, Romance
year: 2011
format: Netflix Canada

plot; After yet another break up, a thirty something woman panics when she hears a theory that any woman who has more then 20 lovers will never marry. She then starts tracking down old boyfriends trying to make it work.

Based on the book

This sounds like it would be a great romantic comedy, all the elements are there. The only problem is it really doesn't work.  The first ten minutes hits strong, but then it starts to fall in on itself. It takes too long to really get going, and doesn't hit it's steam quick enough.
There just didn't seem to be any chemistry between the two leads, leaving it feeling forced.

For a romantic comedy, the comedy just wasn't there. The elegance that chick flicks have been known to bring, just wasn't there. There was nothing in this movie that made me want to read the book, a movie based on a book should always leave you wanting to read the original book.
