Ally Darling embarks on a quest to find the best “ex” of her life, by any means necessary, when she reads a magazine article warning that people who have had 20 or more relationships have missed their chance at true love.
Comedy - This is a raunchy romantic comedy aimed at young adult audiences.
Fans of stars Anna Faris and Chris Evans will have plenty to savor
though other known stars only show up in small roles. Sexual content,
language, and constant sex talk make this one not for children.
PROFANITY: 19 F-words; 13 S-words; a number of others. SEX/NUDITY: Sex and unrelated nudity. VIOLENCE: None. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Frequent alcohol drinking. ACTION: None. COMEDY: Constant sex humor both verbal and physical.
USA TodayFull Review Average And though the film is in the vein of raunchy female-oriented comedies, à la Bridesmaids, it ranks higher in crudity than in the number of laughs generated.
Washington PostFull Review Poor As filthy as it is funny, the short message can't be described in a family newspaper. Still, it's the best thing about the movie.
NY PostFull Review Average No matter how charmingly loopy she is, Faris can't transcend the stale gender clichés and rehashed rom-com set pieces that keep this movie from being what director Mark Mylod apparently wants it to be -- the new "Bridesmaids'' -- right down to the identical opening gag.

Ally is an original modern heroine. She is smart, attractive, funny and romantic – a young woman trying to figure out who she really is, as well as whom she should be with. While her quest to find her best "ex,” or former boyfriend, is triggered by a magazine article, it also signifies something even more intriguing: Ally is at a point in her life when she doesn't have the husband, job or life she thought she'd have. She is at a crossroads, which leads her to wonder if she has missed something – or someone – important during the past decade.
