There isn't much originality in this rude female-led comedy, but its observations on single life are a nicely updated twist on the Sex and the City formula. The film is also often very funny, keeping the energy levels high while refusing to go down the usual narrative route in each of the loosely intertwined plot-strands.
It's set in New York, of course, where Alice (Dakota Johnson) is newly single and starting a new job. Her colleague Robin (Rebel Wilson) takes her under her wing, teaching her how to be single in the big city. Alice's sister Meg (Leslie Mann) is a maternity doctor who's suddenly feeling the need to have a child of her own. Then just as she becomes pregnant using a sperm bank, she meets the outrageously charming Ken (Jake Lacy), who she thinks might be too young for her. Meanwhile, Alice's neighbour Lucy (Alison Brie) is flirting with the womanising local barman Tom (Anders Holm) as she looks for her perfect man.
Yes, this is another movie in which women define themselves by their aching need for a man. This kind of undermines the "you have to be happy on your own" message, although at least the three main romantic-comedy plots don't fit into the usual cliched structure. The film is packed with frank, girly conversations, exploring how it feels to be single in a society in which coupling up is seen as the ultimate goal. So while commenting on every possible aspect of sex and relationships, the script also tries to say that it's perfectly fine to remain happily unattached. Thankfully, the cast is grounded enough to balance the comedy and romance in realistic situations. Johnson, Brie and Mann all deliver funny, revealing performances as smart women who make silly decisions. Wilson, by contrast, is mere comic relief in the same role she always plays.

An embrace with presenter Leslie Mann caused the back of Johnson's dress to unfasten, but disaster was narrowly averted.
Dakota Johnson laughed off her flirtation with wardrobe malfunction at the People’s Choice Awards last night, saying “it’s not like everybody here hasn’t already seen my boobs!”
The 26 year old American star, who shot to fame after appearing as Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey last year, was accepting her award for Favourite Dramatic Movie Actress at the awards ceremony on Wednesday night (January 6th) when a hug from presenter Leslie Mann apparently damaged her dress.
Reaching behind her back to fasten herself back in to her silver Armani crop top dress, Johnson gamely made light of the brush with embarrassment, exclaiming “Leslie just broke my dress!” before referencing her famous role.

When Alice finds herself single after her last relationship comes to an end, her friend Robin takes it on herself to remind Alice how to play the field and have fun! Robin knows if Alice gets caught up in a lul it'll take her much longer to recover, so she teaches Alice a few tricks to have fun and cheap nights out.
Whilst Robin means well, Alice's views on how to get over her breakup differ to her friends but eventually she comes to realise that Robin might have a point - so much so that her new way of life might just help a few more of her friends too. How To Be Single is a lighthearted take on a group of female friends who are all trying to deal with different life issues.
How To Be Single is produced by Drew Barrymore and is directed by Christian Ditter.

Yahoo has announced a takeover of the series for 13 more episodes.
Yahoo!’s planned foray into long form digital content was met with some confusion when the appointed executive producers of the new projects Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) and Mike Tollin (Smallville) made the announcement at Digital Content NewFronts back in April. However, after a Community revival was announced as one of the first projects, viewers’ doubts seem to have been assuaged.
Yahoo had the show's devoted fanbase in mind, when acquiring the rights.
The deal was announced earlier this week, with creator Dan Harmon saying in a statement: . "I am very pleased that Community will be returning for its predestined sixth season on Yahoo. I look forward to bringing our beloved NBC sitcom to a larger audience by moving it online."

A feat previously thought impossible - a family movie that's actually good.
The Lego Movie doesn’t sound like something that could possibly be good and yet, here it is, defying all expectations and being actually great entertainment. Set up as a dizzying mashup of story and pop culture references (the way most kids actually play with their toys,) this supposedly kids movie is clearly geared equally (if not more) towards adults – not in the “wink wink nudge nudge” way that most kids movies have of peppering the script with the occasional gag for adults, but as a full-fledged, interesting story for grownups that’s bound to keep most kids happy as well.
To all those who expected this to be terrible: it isn't.
The Lego Movie is set in a dystopian universe run by the evil President Business. Everyone follows a detailed set of instructions on how to live their lives, they buy ridiculously overpriced coffee. The top song in the charts is called Everything Is Awesome, which should tell you hot terrible this world really is. We follow Emmett Brickowski (get it?) a construction worker, who, despite being completely happy with the whole government arrangement, gets dragged into a rebellion plot and put at the head of the Master Buildres’ uprising. There’s a prophecy, you see, and it says he has to do it.
The trailer was uploaded to YouTube earlier this week and it is gloriously funny
If you didn't know a LEGO movie was going to be made then get ready to have all your childhood dreams come true as the makers of Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs have assemble what could be the greatest animated movie since, well, Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs (in case you haven't seen it, you really need to).
Parks and Recreation's Chris Pratt, who will also be starring in the upcoming Marvel-movie-adaption of Guardians of the Galaxy next year, is voicing the main character, Emmet, who has been chosen by the Master Builders of the LEGO universe as the saviour of a their world against a life-threatening force. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller ar teaming up again to film this picture, which will feature a slew of characters from across the LEGO world, including Batman, Superman, ninjas, wizards and more as Emmet tries to save the LEGO world.
A year after they met, San Francisco chef Tom (Segel) proposes to his girlfriend Violet (Blunt), but their excited wedding plans are interrupted when Violet gets a post-doc position at the University of Michigan. So they postpone the wedding and head to the snowy Midwest. There, Violet's career soars while Tom has little to do beyond making sandwiches in a deli and going hunting with his new friends. And before they can set a new date, Violet's sister (Brie) marries and has two kids with Tom's best pal (Pratt).
