Storyline

What makes a woman swipe right for Mr. Wrong and left for Mr. Right? This is a look at the real-life science behind our (often regrettable) romantic impulses. Writer-director Whitney Cummings (2 Broke Girls) stars as no-nonsense neuroscientist Julia, whose research into the biochemistry of the female brain is illustrated by three couples: newlyweds Zoe (Cecily Strong) and Greg (Blake Griffin), whose career troubles seep into their relationship; Lisa (Sofia Vergara) and Steven (Deon Cole), who are looking to spice up their stuck-in-a-rut marriage; and Lexi (Lucy Punch) who can't help trying to change her boyfriend Adam (James Marsden). Meanwhile, the straight-laced Julia's own synapses start to fire when a handsome new subject (Toby Kebbell) joins her study.

Total disappointment
19 February 2018 | by apjcSee all my reviews

Forget the science, this was billed as a comedy. Speaking as a male I often find female comedy to be very good and incisive. Was hoping there'd be some clever put downs about males and their masculinity, the bitchiness of the sisters to each other but no. It seemed like a starters manual to neurosurgery with lame attempts at comic interpretation in life. Didn't watch it all as I'd need brain surgery later.
