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.

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.

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

A wonderfully funny comedy that shows young women in their real environment, competing with themselves.

Anna Faris is cute and funny. I only wish the movie lived up to her charms.

Were this film made with Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey, it would be excruciating. But Faris and Evans make it surprisingly enjoyable.

There are some laughs here, no question, but it seems to take every ounce of Faris' comic ability to keep the story moving forward.

It's all about the essential mystery of casting here, turning what so easily could have been a ho-hum rom-com into breezy, unchallenging fun.

As someone who-swimming against the tide-didn't care for Bridesmaids, imagine my surprise to find another female-driven, female-written R-rated comedy so entertaining.

You can tell Faris craves laughs, and so it's incredibly easy to root for her.

Note to Hollywood: Just because films like "The Hangover" and "Bridesmaids" were successful doesn't mean that having characters yell "Vagina" every few minutes is funny. It usually isn't.

It's very silly and cheesy, and the opening gag is unfortunately the same as the one that starts Bridesmaids, but there is something puppyishly likable in this romantic comedy...

This latest predictable rom-com has 1.5 things going for it - extremely likable and harmonious leads in Faris and Chris "Captain America" Evans, and, for those familiar with Boston, lots of great locations...

It made me laugh more than most movies this year, and confirms my belief that Anna Faris could be a big star if she ever gets offered a script worthy of her talents.

The leads have an infectious chemistry and Ally is a refreshingly modern heroine with a nice screwball touch.

What's Your Number? manages to skate the line between romantic and risque, which is far more than most movies of its ilk can accomplish.

The premise may be asinine, but sometimes that's the surest way to prevent letdown - I'm sure it's still possible to be disappointed with a film whose entire plot is derived from an invented article in Marie Claire, but the odds are against it.
