How to Be Single 2016

     Loosely based on a novel by Liz Tuccillo, she is also the author of He’s Just Not That Into You.  Alice has been dating Josh for a long time.  She decides she’d like to separate for a while, she thinks she’s never been single and she would like to before they get married.  What she doesn’t know is that Josh will move on and he will start dating someone else.  Alice doesn't have a choice about finding out what it’s like to be single now.  She gets a job at a law firm and she meets Robin, if anyone knows how to be single its Robin.  Alice has been living with Meg but her landlord finds out and this is a one-person apartment.  Now Alice has to find a place and live by herself too.
     Alice meets other singles in New York but a lot of times she still feels alone.  The character played by Wilson is over the top but seems one-dimensional and she sometimes gets on your nerves.  A lot of holidays are thrown into this movie too?  3* (This movie is OK)

110 min, Comedy directed by Christian Ditter with Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson, Leslie Mann, Damon Wayans Jr., Anders Holm, Alison Brie, Nicholas Braun, Jake Lacy, Jason Mantzoukas, Colin Jost, Mickey Gooch Jr.

Note:  Imdb 6.1 out of 10, 49% critic 48% audience on Rotten Tomatoes, Roger Ebert 2 ½*, Amazon 3.7* out of 5* with 1051 reviews.
Special Note:  Filmed in New York City and Brooklyn, New York; Grand Canyon, Arizona.  Lily Collins was originally cast in the role of Alice but she declined.
