By trying to remain romantic comedy audience-friendly, it just purees the whole thing into a stew no one would want to eat.
| Original Score: C
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.
| Original Score: 4/10
Once in a while a movie breaks the mold and tries something new. The latest rom-com starring perennially funny girl Anna Faris does not break the mold.
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.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Evans does have legitimate movie-star charm and charisma, but you kind of get the feeling that What's Your Number? might be Faris' last at-bat in a leading role.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
The rom-com spark simply isn't there between the pair, which results in a couple of characters' large egos interplaying.
| Original Score: 1/5
What's Your Number? doesn't appear to get Anna Faris, which is its loss.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
I liked this movie the first time...when it was called 'Bridesmaids.' (Movie Review for Parents also available)
A prime example of romantic-comedy by the numbers.
Feels less like a showcase for its star than just another glossy barrier holding back her potential.
| Original Score: 2/5
Anna Faris and Chris Evans don't have enough scenes together, don't have enough funny lines and aren't surrounded by enough funny people to give this "Bridesmaids-lite" a shot.
Too similar to, and inferior to, "Bridesmaids"
Not terribly shocking, but if you've seen the trailer, you've already witnessed some of the funniest moments in the film.
| Original Score: 5/10
This desperately seeking-laughs comedy stars Anna Faris, a comedian with a lot of quirk appeal, though little of it is on display.
There's very little personal dirt in Sarah Palin: You Betcha! that wouldn't be upstaged by Joe McGinniss' recent Palin tell-all.
Even the delectable Anna Faris cannot get us to root for the character she plays in this charmless, distasteful dud.
| Original Score: D
Anna Faris survives "What's Your Number?" with eccentric comic charm intact. Dumb film; smart comedienne.
| Original Score: 2/4
Anna Faris and Chris Evans have enough charm to almost pull this off. Almost.
| Original Score: B-
Some audience members will come out for What's Your Number? for Faris' appeal and likability, but they'll leave disappointed because this film is more interested in showing her physical assets than her comedic ones.
To answer the question, 'What's Your Number?,' I'm thinking 'zero.' As in the amount of time and money that filmgoers should spend on this cellu-void.
| Original Score: 1/10
