So what's it all about, then?

Valentine's Day tends to split people into three camps: the sickeningly-happy in relationships, the single af lot sobbing into their Double Stuff Oreos and those single and quite frankly not giving a f**k. And guess what? How to Be Single is a movie that caters to all of the above.

Alice, Robin, Meg and Lucy are your typical girl squad; each with some super complicated shit going on in their lives when it comes to fellas. They say men are from Mars and women are from Venus; and this movie follows each of their twisted tales through love, loss and whatever the American equivalent of Lambrini is. OH, it's an emotional rollercoaster.

Anyone good in it?

Er, you could say that yeah. There's the ever-funny Rebel Wilson as Robin, Dakota Johnson off of Fifty Shades of Grey fame as a rather confused character called Alice (she's the main one, tbh) and Leslie Mann. STAR-STUDDED, some might say.

What were the highlights, please?

Okay, so there were a lot. Basically we were all about:

  • Meg's (POTENTIAL DON'T WANNA GIVE TOO MUCH AWAY) love interest. He's hot.
  • Tom off of the bar. He's really hot too.
  • The bit where Tom just gets with a certain someone in front of her estranged former BFF and wedding party to make 'em jealous.
  • Alice's ENTIRE WARDROBE. Seriously, every bloody outfit was goals on goals.
  • Each individual storyline - just added some depth and made sure it never got boring, y'know?

But these bits should have been left on the cutting room floor...

Don't hate us, but we don't know if we love the ending. Again, don't wanna give too much away but we don't know if it went the way we wanted it to for various reasons and now we're on edge and just...AGH.

Any topless moments I should be aware of?

Yup, Tom gets topless loads. It's fantastic.

Overall verdict:

Since we are, indeed, single af this Valentine's Day and essentially plan on spoiling the cat with a larger-than-usual lunch, we wouldn't be surprised if we found ourselves down the cinema watching this all over again with 'the girls' *shudder* (sorry, hate that phrase.) Bloody hilarious, really.

FOUR STARS ****
