By trying to remain romantic comedy audience-friendly, it just purees the whole thing into a stew no one would want to eat.

What's Your Number? isn't necessary as a romantic comedy should be. It goes for the cheap way out at every turn and uses Faris as a punching bag for acquiring jokes.

Too similar to, and inferior to, "Bridesmaids"

While Faris is her usual, lovably offbeat self, she ultimately fights a losing battle against formula.

Sometimes, underneath a film's 'R' rating for sexual content and foul language, lies a core of sweetness and warmth. Unfortunately, for the unsuspecting viewer who is used to the quality of, say, Judd Apatow comedies, this is not one of those films.

The film's satirical jabs at people addicted to Facebook and Twitter raises a few smiles in what is otherwise a straight-to-cinemas DVD release.

Anna Faris and Chris Evans have enough charm to almost pull this off. Almost.

There is something really attractive about Anna Faris as Ally, she has that mesmerizing mobile mouth that distracts but her presence is actually totally winning. She's a klutz but a loveable one.

Still, it's hard to dislike any vehicle for Faris -- the slob's Marilyn Monroe -- with her gift for dejection and her pliable face, which is like a hastily drawn cartoon.

If anything, it feels like 'What's Your Number?' is the worst version of what 'Bridesmaids' could have been. It just doesn't heart, and every joke feels completely forced and obvious.

Fresh, funny and boosted by Anna Faris' superb comedic performance, this raunchy rom-com registers as a surprising delight.

The film isn't great, but Faris is.

Like recent rom-com Friends with Benefits, it's the chemistry of the two leads that keeps it afloat. They just deserve better material to flirt around.

Anna Faris can be cute and funny in the bubbly, ditzy, Goldie Hawn manner - as she proved in The House Bunny - but she's mostly shrill and irritating in lame chick flick What's Your Number

In spite of efforts to instill in our young women the notion that self-worth shouldn't be measured by her ability to attract a husband, filmmakers continue to craft comedy from that very outmoded belief.

Faris is a rare talent: beautiful as a porcelain doll with the comic instincts of a first-rate clown ...

...less an exercise in bad taste than in bad filmmaking.

A predictable by-the-numbers screwball farce that doesn't add up to entertaining fun.

A prime example of romantic-comedy by the numbers.

This is smarmy and sentimental. And repugnant, starting with the premise.
