How To Be Single | Film review – Big Apple Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

How To Be Single - Dakota Johnson finds out from Rebel Wilson, Leslie Mann and Alison Brie whether New York girls just wanna have fun in this breezy rom-com.

How to be Single Dakota Johnson Rebel Wilson

Having just broken up with her college boyfriend, Dakota Johnson’s newbie New Yorker Alice learns the rules of the city’s dating game from her hard-partying work colleague Robin, a typically rowdy, rude and often very funny Rebel Wilson. The other strands in breezy chick flick How To Be Single – based on the book by Liz Tucillo, a writer for Sex and the City – mostly rely on rom-com formula, with subplots involving Alison Brie’s marriage-obsessed Lucy, Anders Holm’s womanising barman Tom and Alice’s highly strung obstetrician sister, played by a comically nervy Leslie Mann. Yet even if the movie doesn’t break fresh ground, its stars are consistently engaging.
