How to Cause the Occasional Giggle

If you saw the trailer for this film you have seen about 90 percent of the jokes in this movie. A bit of a laugh here and there but if you want a good comedy you could do better than this.

Quite a funny film, not much to the story line.

Nothing here will blow you away—think of this one as taking baby steps away from what's formulaic.

Feels reverse-engineered to justify its ending, which while admittedly gratifying, can’t accurately be described as happy. For that, it would have to be worth the contrivances, cliches and tedium that have gone before.

Silly and fun until it wears out its welcome.

Though Wilson is always reason enough to see a movie, she’s stuck here in a fluffball that plays like warmed-over subplots from "Sex and the City."

Much like its characters' romantic lives, How to Be Single is more enjoyable when it's being casual.

A lot like its Jager-bombing, romance-seeking protagonists: Cute and goofy and kind of a mess.
