What's your Number ? (2011)

What's Your Number? is a 2011 romantic comedy film starring Anna Faris and Chris Evans. It is based on Karyn Bosnak's book 20 Times a Lady. The film was released on September 30, 2011 to generally negative reception.

The Plot

On her way home after losing her job, Ally Darling comes across a magazine article entitled "What's Your Number?", which asks the reader to calculate how many people she has slept with. Realizing that her number is double the average, Ally decides to track down all of her ex-boyfriends in the hope that one of them will have grown into the man she wants to marry, and therefore the number of men she has slept with will never have to increase. With the help of her womanizing neighbor Colin Shea, she manages to find all of her exes, but things do not quite work out the way she had expected.


The film has a 24% "rotten" rating at Rotten Tomatoes based on 105 reviews (25 of which were positive); the consensus states: "The comic timing of Anna Faris is sharp as always, but it's wasted away in this predictable, boilerplate comedy." The film's rating on Metacritic is "generally unfavorable", receiving a score of 35 from 31 professional critics. However, the public in general had an extremely positive review of the movie, most people rating it at 4-5 stars out of 5 stars.
