What’s Your Number is about a woman who has had 20 relationships in her life, and suspects that one of the men she’s been with is her true love, and now she has to figure out which one is.
Anna Faris plays the lead character of Ally Darling, who decided that her limit on number of men she would sleep with in her life is 20. After banging her 20th dude, she has to go back through her list of conquests and figure out if one of them is her one true love. As these films often go, she revisits he all of her previous boyfriends, and they’re all nightmares, except for one guy, with whom she has chemistry but could never see herself with. But, with a little Hollywood magic, they see past their differences and realize that they’re made for each other.
And the crowd goes mild.
Written by Gabrielle Allan, whose main experience is producing and writing a handful of episodes of Scrubs, the film will be directed by Mark Mylod, who directed The Big White (which I don’t remember) and Ali G Indahouse (which failed to capture the essence of what Sacha Baron Cohen’s character was all about). So the film is probably going to suck.
This film has not been rated. But probably PG-13 or R.

Chris Evans … Colin
Anna Faris … Ally Darling
Chris Pratt … Disgusting Donald
Based on the book by Karyn Bosnak.
High Fidelity, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, Ghosts of Girlfriend’s Past
I like Anna Faris, and there were some spy photos taken from the set that show her getting naked, so we can only hope we get some beaver action.
This story has been done before, and at the end of the day, a film about a promiscuous girl trying to find love with one of the multitude she’s banged just doesn’t sound all that fun.
I’m thinking the box office will be decent, as the studio will work hard to promote anything with Chris Evans next year. Captain America and the Avengers are going to make him a big star (provided they don’t suck) and no doubt they’ll try to capitalize on that. I see the extra marketing helping push the box office to respectable numbers, but I don’t think it’ll be the kind of success they’re looking for. The story is just too bland.
