Storyline

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.

Quotes

Alice: The thing about being single is, you should cherish it. Because, in a week, or a lifetime, of being alone, you may only get one moment. One moment, when you're not tied up in a relationship with anyone. A parent, a pet, a sibling, a friend. One moment, when you stand on your own. Really, truly single. And then... It's gone.

One of the worst
12 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

My wife and I went to the cinema to watch a random movie. There were not much options, and she has already heard about this movie (how to be single), and so she suggested to watch it. if you think it was about love, it is not. If you think it is about sex, it is not. If you think it is comedy, it is not (except for that crazy fat lady, she is funny though).

The most thing I love in my life is watching movies, especially in the cinema, I am fine spending 3 days in a row, 24 hours watching movies. but this movie... I was trying hard to laugh, it is not funny at all. it is romantic nor drama.

I would have this movie as my last option on a boring day that I have nothing to do
