By the time the film was greenlit, the script was a few years old. Anna Faris was adamant that they raise Ally's number of sexual partners, because she felt that a girl her age in the modern world would have more life experience. The studio, on the other hand, was adamant that it be 16 partners because they felt too many partners would make the character unrelatable to the audience. Anna lost the argument and the number they settled on was 20 sexual partners for Ally. See more »

I know I shouldn't have liked or enjoyed it. Especially because I'm not really a big fan of Anna Faris (as an actress that is). But you can't fault her in this one. She really gets the most of many scenes (as stupid as they seem and feel like). And while this isn't really something that should be accounted for (as a positive), it really is nice, that it does not pull any punches (talking about the R-rating, although there is a longer cut to be released later on).
Of course you know where this is heading and while the ending again might fall short of all the swagger that has come up to that point it still feels like a nice comedy. Or should I say "raunchy" instead of nice? But both words fit the bill here. Both lead actors are obviously having fun and it translates and really transcends to the viewer. Not comedy gold, but entertaining enough
