'What's Your Number?' Examiner DVD Review, Written by: Karen Benardello
Sometimes people have to go through multiple choices to find the best fit for them. Much like her character Ally Darling in the romantic comedy ‘What’s Your Number?,’ which is now available to rent at select Long Island Blockbuster locations, Anna Faris broke society expectation to do what was right for her. While Ally dated the wrong men just to find someone society would approve of, the actress continuously took on ditzy characters that the public has come to recognize her for playing. But both Ally and Faris both finally stood up for themselves and went after what made them happy.
‘What’s Your Number?’ follows Ally as her life begins to crumble on the eve of her younger sister Daisy’s (portrayed by Ari Graynor) wedding. Not only does she break up with her boyfriend and get fired from her marketing job, Ally is still being pressured by her mother, Ava (played by Blythe Danner), to be perfect, like Daisy. But the most damaging blow to Ally’s ego is when she reads a magazine article claiming the more men women sleep with, the less likely they’ll find a desirable, committed life partner.
Seeing that Daisy became engaged to one of her ex-boyfriends, Ally decides to track down all of her previous boyfriends to find her best match. So she hires her neighbor, Colin (portrayed by Chris Evans), whose father was a cop and taught him to investigate, to track down all 19 of her ex-boyfriends and flings. But much to both of their surprise, the two ultimately start to develop feelings for each other.
For viewers who want to see more of the memorable chemistry between Faris and Evans, the DVD includes the unrated extended cut of the film, deleted scenes and a gag reel. Women can also relate to Ally’s continuous battle to find the right boyfriend through the extended flashback dates feature.
