User Reviews

like the actors but the movie lacks heart
31 December 2014 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Three NYC friends have love trouble. Jason (Zac Efron) and Daniel (Miles Teller) draw cover art for books. Jason has a theory about girls who starts asking questions that begins with the word SO. Mikey (Michael B. Jordan) is getting dumped by his wife Vera (Jessica Lucas). Jason and Daniel tries to get Mikey laid along with their wingwoman Chelsea (Mackenzie Davis). Jason hooks up with Ellie (Imogen Poots) but he mistakes her for a hooker. To their surprise, she's at their work with a book for their next cover art. Alana (Addison Timlin) is one of Jason's bang buddies.

I really like all 3 guys as actors. I like the girls. I find the characters shallow and not in an interesting way. Sometimes it has some funny lines. It has some fun scenes but they don't add up to compelling relationships or even characters. This cast deserves a better script that has real heart. All the blame has to be laid on new writer/director Tom Gormican. Daniel and Chelsea come closest to a compelling story.
