QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: A promiscuous woman fears she won't find a husband because of the high number of sex partners she's had.
PLOT:
A promiscuous woman named Ally Darling (ANNA FARIS) reads a magazine article that says if a woman has had 20 sex partners in her life, one of them was probably the true love that got away. Ally compiles a list of the men she has been with and is dismayed that she had 19 lovers. She vows to make No. 20 her husband. Unfortunately, she attends her little sister Daisy's (ARI GRAYNOR) engagement party; gets drunk with Daisy and her bridesmaids Eileen, Sheila, Katie, and Jamie (HEATHER BURNS, ELIZA COUPE, KATE SIMSES, and TIKA SUMPTER, respectively); and sleeps with Roger (JOEL McHALE), the man who just fired her from her advertising job.

So, she concocts a new plan. She will re-canvass the 19 men she has had sexual relationships with and discover who among them was "Mr. Right." She recruits Colin (CHRIS EVANS), her hunky neighbor with a gift for finding people on the Internet, to help her track down her past bedmates. Colin is an equally promiscuous person and agrees to help Ally only if she'll let him use her apartment to hide out in when he wants his past evenings' conquests to leave his apartment without further contact.

Among the men Ally re-connects with are: "Disgusting Donald" (CHRIS PRATT), an old college flame who has since lost a lot of weight; Gerry Perry (ANDY SAMBERG), an oddball puppeteer who was her first time back in high school; and Tom Piper (ANTHONY MACKIE), a man with political aspirations who turns out to be gay.

There's also Simon (MARTIN FREEMAN), a British man who Ally pretended to be British with; Rick (ZACHARY QUINTO), her last boyfriend who wanted sex without any level of commitment; and Jake (DAVE ANNABLE), a seemingly Mr. Perfect who Ally has always wondered about. The more time Ally spends with Colin, though, the more they start to feel like a perfect match despite his playboy ways. At the same time, she has to deal with her divorced mother, Ava, and father (BLYTHE DANNER and ED BEGLEY JR. whose character is referred to in the credits as "Mr. Darling") who can't stand each other.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
