HOW TO BE SINGLE (2016)












#18 of 2016 is the about to be released How to Be Single. The presence of Rebel Wilson made me think this was going to be a gross-out comedy. It wasn't. This is one of the sweetest, funniest movies you'll ever see. Dakota Johnson breaks up with her longtime boyfriend as she wants to see what it's like to be single as she's always been with someone. Others are struggling with different components of single life, including Wilson, Leslie Mann (playing Dakota's big sister wh...o wants to have a baby solo), Alison Brie, Jake Lacy and Damon Wayans Jr. This is a occasionally raunchy comedy with warmth, honesty, emotions that feels real. This film has heart! There's maybe one false note in the entire film (when Wilson exits a cab via window). The rest is a slice of (single) life that we thoroughly enjoyed. Go see this, support intelligent mainstream films like this and maybe the big studios will make more like How to Be Single. Highly recommended.
