What’s Your Number? Trailer, You Guys

The idea of a woman who refuses to sleep with another man until she knows he’s the one she’s going to marry because she read in a ladies’ magazine that you can’t get married after you’ve had 20 romantic partners and she’s had 19 is a perfectly reasonable and entirely unexciting premise for a romantic comedy. A bit of a snooze, really. (Incidentally, the first time I heard of this movie was in that New Yorker profile of Anna Faris. Did you read that? You should read that. It was good!) For one thing, as a premise, it’s really stuck between two eras, right? Like, the era where a woman can even HAVE 20 romantic partners, and an era where all a woman wants is to get married. But perhaps that’s where we’re at as a society. Wait, could it be that What’s Your Number? is actually a perfect depiction of modern femininity? JUST KIDDING! I will tell you this, though: Anna Faris is very good, and that supporting cast is VERY GOOD! Chris Pratt! Andy Samberg! Thomas Lennon! And I didn’t even realize how much I missed Martin Freeman until just now. Missed you so much, buddy. Welcome home.
