How To Be Single a perfect guide for all the lonely hopefuls during the Valentines Day season. The most important romantic comedy to come out in years. It has my seal approval. It has it all. Including a release date two days before Valentines Day 2016.
This movie is the romantic comedy to end all romantic comedy. It's been produced by none other then rom com Queen, Drew Barrymore. The light hearted, America's sweetheart on the screen for 50 First Dates, He's Just Not That Into You, and my personal favorite Music and Lyrics. The only thing that could make it better is to have her in a starring role.
We've got our funny girls to round out our cast. Rebel Wilson is clearly the wild, fun, Australian part of the group. She's the one trying to get Dakota Johnson's character back out into the dating world. Tragically she's just suffered a serious break up. Sure to be a major plot point in the film.
Leslie Mann is also there. She's always a highlight no matter what film she's in. Be it Knocked Up or when her and Nicki Minaj saved The Other Woman with the help of Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton. I'm not sure what her context will be. Is she the older friend? The wizened mentor? Who knows. She'll be funny.
There's also a string of hunky males in the film. None of them have the perfect six pack, but we'll have to make do.
We all know the plot of this movie. Dakota Johnson is trying to come to terms with being single and realizing what she really needed in the end was the right man. I'm sure her and Leslie Mann and Rebel Wilson will all end up at some wedding with their respective beaus. I would love for this movie to say “fuck love” but the hopeless romantic inside of me is not about this life.
The movie comes out on February 12th. A Friday. Two days before the big day. It's based off a book by Liz Tuccillo, so this gives you time to prepare before you go out with your girls and your boys and have a night out being sad and alone.
