A woman (Anna Faris) breaks up with her boyfriend and loses her job on the same day. When she reads an article on how many sex partners is acceptable for women to have before settling down, she realizes that she is very near the cutoff and decides to revisit the men she's slept with to see if any of them are suitable as lifelong partners. Also with Chris Evans, Ari Graynor, Blythe Danner, Ed Begley Jr., Oliver Jackson Cohen and Heather Burns. Directed by Mark Mylod. [1:46]

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.




INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
