After the wedding, when Ally is driving the blue car, the speedometer and RPM meter of the car are both on zero. Perhaps, the speedometer & odometer are out of order, from wreck-less driving (before the movie filming occurred) or they were removed from the automobile for another reason. See more »
I number this film among the romcoms I have enjoyed lately, even though its a bit racy at times
Ally Darling (Anna Faris) is having the proverbial bad day. First, even though she got up early to make a vegan breakfast for her current beau, he breaks up with her. It could be because she asked him to attend her sister's wedding with her and he didn't want things to be that serious. Second, her boss calls her into the office to tell her that their marketing company is downsizing and she is being let go. However, no other staff member gets a pink slip. As Ally takes the bus home, she spies a magazine article about relationships. It seems that women who have had more than 20 lovers remain single throughout their lives, most cases. Ally gasps. Her most recent boyfriend was "number 19". Therefore, she must make certain that number 20 is the one. Suddenly, another idea appears. Perhaps one of her past affairs would now work out, giving her a better chance for happiness. Although her sister tries to tell her its nonsense, as do her other friends, Ally begins a search to find her former beaux. As luck would have it, an ex-investigator lives right across the hall. His name is Colin (Chris Evans) and Ally has only smiled at him occasionally, mostly because he has an endless stream of ladies coming and going. But, after truly talking one day, when Colin begs Ally to let him hide out in her space for a couple of hours, the hunt begins. Colin will try to track down information on the marketing gal's past flames and Ally will let him dodge women, from time to time, at her pad. Is this the beginning of a beautiful friendship? We'll see. In the meantime, Ally discovers one of the men on her list is a senator, who wants her as a "trophy wife" to hide his same-sex orientation! What else will Ally uncover in her journey? And, could it be that relationship happiness is right in front of her? This is a really cute and fun romcom, albeit a bit racy. If you prefer a film that has the Doris Day touch, you should probably skip this one. Faris and Evans make a good combination, being very attractive and comic performers and the cast supporting them is nice, too. In addition, sets, costumes, script and zesty direction are quite fine, making the total package a small winner. If you number yourself in the romcom fan base, you should head out to find this one soon.
