Movie – I went to see How to Be Single because 1. I love romantic comedies, and 2. I am a huge of Rebel Wilson.
For the first time in her life, Alice (Dakota Johnson) is single. She had hoped that taking a break from her long-time boyfriend, Josh would give her the chance to find herself, but instead she feels completely lost in the world. Everything changes when she meets her new coworker, Robin (Rebel Wilson), who throws Alice into the wild world of hookups and partying. Along with a cast of fellow love-seekers in a hook-up world, Alice learns to embrace the freedom of single life.
This film is hilarious. There are so many great moments, both funny and those verging on serious. While it mainly centers on the life of Alice, viewers also get a look into the lives of Alice’s sister Meg, Robin, and the hopelessly romantic Lucy; four women learning how to be single in bustling New York city. The title really says it all. For a romantic comedy, I thought How to Be Single was actually pretty honest and relatable. As far as unrealistic love stories go, there was a lot of truth to this film about what it’s like to be single in a society obsessed with searching for your soul mate. How to Be Single provides a glimpse into the reality of singlehood, while still making you laugh.
