There's a right way to be single, a wrong way to be single, and then...there's Alice. And Robin. Lucy. Meg. Tom. David. New York City is full of lonely hearts seeking the right match, be it a love connection, a hook-up, or something in the middle. And somewhere between the teasing texts and one-night stands, what these unmarrieds all have in common is the need to learn how to be single in a world filled with ever-evolving definitions of love. Sleeping around in the city that never sleeps was never so much fun.
Overall I enjoyed 'How to Be Single'. As I said before, the plot is a very modern plot that many people have either been involved in or have been a witness to personally and all while everything happens, it is quite comical from beginning to end. Each actor and actress had a very entertaining and comedic role and all brought a creative energy to the film with each minute that passed. Dakota Johnson included. After seeing 'Fifty Shades of Grey' (yes, I know, I watched it, stop judging), I thought Dakota was unimpressive to say the least but in 'How to Be Single', she brings a very low-key comedic energy to the table and I found myself laughing at many of her quips and one- liners. One last point that I thoroughly enjoyed was how the film was shot. It showed excellent shots of New York City capturing the beauty in the city. Also there was a small feature that I liked in the form of how a small text box would pop up as the characters were about to text another person through their cell phones. I thought it was creative and refreshing. A few points that I was not a fan of this movie were for one, there are a few time lapses that are confusing to follow. Sometimes it jumps a couple weeks, sometimes a couple months and it was just hard to follow at times. Another point was, as much as they brought great energy, the introduction of all the characters seemed quick and forced to a point where it is a little confusing to remember who was who and their relation to the story.
All in all, as I said, I overall enjoyed this film for what it was worth as a romantic comedy. It was refreshing and modern. The cast brought a great comedic energy in their own unique ways. I would recommend this movie as a great candidate for a nice date night out. Although even the story is something interesting to embrace.
