MOVIE REVIEW: WHAT'S YOUR NUMBER
It's a story of a woman searching for that true love yet bounded by the constraints presented by one article saying some truths regarding women and the men they sleep with. Too worried of the number "20" as taboo, she finds herself trapped in an endless chase of the people she has slept with from the past. Her worries of not marrying and having a family was too much as she made desperate measures and a goose chase on her ex's. Anna Faris played the role just right - with the correct blend of individualism, naiveness and uniqueness. She then bumps a womanizer in the character of Chris Evans. Although Chris' acting chops were not really spectacular, he has given a sense of sweetness in the way he portrayed his character. In the end, it was not just a journey for Anna's character but also a self-discovery on the side of Chris' role.
This one's a fun movie although with a familiar plot. The lines were nice and cohesive but I know it could have been better. The casting of Anna and Chris is nice as they somehow have a comic feel and vibe making us think they really like each other. This one's 3.5 popcorns out of 5.
